    Sustainable Luxury

    EIDER DOWN

    Canadian Eider down is the finest, warmest and rarest down in the world. Hand-collected from the nest by biologists, its annual harvest contributes to natural land's preservation and the protection of biodiversity in the estuary.

    ORGANIC WAX COTTON

    We worked closely with Halley Stevensons to develop a custom-made down-proof lining along with a waxed outer shell that performs well in Canadian winters, both made of GOTS certified organic cotton and without PFOAs or formaldehyde.

    NICKEL-FREE METAL

    Olmsted's higher calibre zippers are incredibly strong and made of nickel-free metal. Our sturdy hardware is custom-made by riri in Switzerland. Riri was founded in 1936 in Mendrisio, Switzerland.

    MADE IN MONTRÉAL

    Olmsted was founded by a vision of sustainability and humanity

    Warm

    While Eider down tests at 700 loft, it’s unique high density and clings makes it the highest insulating and most luxurious down available worldwide. Ounce for ounce, down is the warmest insulating material and eider down has insulating properties unsurpassed by any other type of down.

    Weatherproof

    Halley Stevensons in Scotland are expert wax masters since 1864. This traditional proofing process results in a supple and plastic-free outer shell. Their new waxes have waterproofing characteristics that are four times more efficient than traditional waxed fabrics. 

    Breathable

    Eider down has incredible breathability, its insulating capacity is so advanced that it adjusts to the body’s temperature. The water repellant organic cotton lining remains neutral regardless of temperature, and does not retain sweat or odor.

    EIDER DOWN, HAND-COLLECTED FROM THE NESTS BY BIOLOGISTS.

    The annual harvest contributes to the protection and development of several nesting islands in the St. Lawrence estuary, quebec.
