Bringing Warmth and Comfort To Life
Every day, we push ourselves to create the high-quality feather and down products that provide warmth and relaxation at the end of a hectic day. Our products are very personal and are often used in the most intimate of spaces. Because of this, we make every stitch, every cut with great skill and care.
We take the same thoughtful approach in helping make our customers’ lives easier, too. We listen closely and seek to understand their needs. Only then are we able to offer the solutions and products that will make their days a little better and brighter. We apply our proven techniques to modern styles that create quality, comfortable and durable products our customers are proud to sell.
This approach has always been at the heart of Down Decor. In fact, it’s part of the legacy that’s been passed through many generations.
Though Down Decor officially opened for business in 1994, its origins date much farther back – five generations back, in fact. Its story began in Europe in the early 1900s with the same focus on craftsmanship, ingenuity and warmth customers find today.
Then, Pinkus “Pinky” Werthaiser and his brothers formed the Midwest Feather Company in their new home in Cincinnati after World War II. Ohio Feather Company, an offshoot of Pinky’s original family business, was founded in 1984 with a focus on service to the cushion and furniture industry. Today, the Ohio Feather Company is still a leading supplier of feather and down to furniture and home textiles industries, as well as a fully vertical bulk down and feather processing facility in Cincinnati.
Daniel Guigui started Down Decor in 1994, with the support of Ohio Feather Company. Down Decor initially supplied feather pillow inserts to the wholesale, fashion and design industries. The business has since evolved into a leading supplier of utility bedding to retail, catalog, luxury linen and hospitality markets.
Andy Payne, an industry veteran, partnered with Daniel at Down Decor in 2005. Together, they transformed the company into a leading bulk down supplier to the home textiles, fashion and outdoor industries.
With five generations of experience, the team at Down Decor continues to look for ways to fully serve their customers, including expanding services and offerings to include polyester products, private label cut and sew and importing services.
