It’s made of goose feathers but you would never guess by looking at it; when you touch it though, its lightness and softness give clues to its origin.

It’s an Italian, though, who implemented the concept and holds the rights to Thindown patent and technology: Paolo Bodo, CEO and controlling shareholder of NIPI (Natural Insulation Products, Inc.). The fabric is manufactured in a plant located in Chieti by equipment called Nipi R40, the outcome of a R&D project by an international team of engineers coordinated by Ron Reuben.
