All Czech Feather and Down Company products are individually handcrafted, as they once were in the small, close-knit communities of Czechoslovakia. The art of pillow and comforter making has been handed down through the generations within our family. Many of the crafts once commonplace in agricultural villages of Europe have all but disappeared. But here in Mount Vernon Iowa, in the heartland of America, this European craft has been thriving for over 100 years. The quality found in our handmade comforters and pillows simply could not be duplicated in mass production settings.
