Family Craft in front of the birthplace of Brothers Grimm.
The DownComforterStore is a successful, family-owned company based in Los Angeles. It was founded in 2008 by Renate Craft.
Renate is from Germany and, following her move to the U.S. in 1998, she wanted to introduce a source for the highest quality down bedding from Europe. In that pursuit, she became the exclusive distributor in the U.S. for Hans Kruchen from Germany and Ringsted Dun from Denmark.
Hans Kruchen is certified with "Gruene Gans" - "Green Goose", with the focus on environment friendly washing, sterilization and manufacturing process as well the guarantee that, no down will be plucked from live animals. The Craft family is very proud of its association with Ringsted Dun and Hans Kruchen, for their products are environmentally consciences, and human rights and animal welfare standards (cruelty free down) are thoroughly respected.
Renate travels regularly to Europe to meet existing business partners, as well as to find dedicated new suppliers for her range of specialty offerings. Some of those suppliers are long standing, efficient family businesses as well, and which contribute to the entire product line and meet the recognized worldwide standard Oeko-Tex 100. In addition, The DownComforterStore offers different bedding and duvet cover sizes that is uniquely pleasing to European customers, and not always easy to find in the U.S. market .
The Craft family is positioned to serve the expanding consumer desire for natural bedding products of high quality, with sustainability and responsibility to our environment in mind. They regularly earn the business of down lovers who are not able to find that combination of family business trust with the variety of superb, natural bedding, plus excellent customer service. It is important for a company to consider how we behave, in a world constantly changing. Thank you for your business and referral!
