Makoti is a member of the European down & Feather Association (EDFA). Makoti goose down can be used by people allergic to house-dust mites and all products carry the NO-MITE label. This means that allergy, asthma and hay fever sufferers no longer need to give up the natural sleep comfort offered by down and feathers. There have been repeated false claims that there is a connection between the occurrence of allergic reactions to the house dust mite and the use of bedding filled with feathers and down. Representative studies in Central Europe, in which hundreds of homes, bedrooms, beds, duvets and pillows were examined for house dust mite infestation and allergen content, has found:
Feather- and down-filled bedding is not a preferred habitat for house dust mites. With normal care, hardly any house dust mites are found in these articles of bedding, as the dense down proof fabric represents an almost impenetrable barrier for the mites.
The favourable warm and climatic conditions offered by down bedding for humans (rapid accumulation of warmth while the person is sleeping, rapid decrease in humidity when the room is aired) are a very unfavourable habitat for mites, which need humidity.
In every home and in every bedroom, it is almost impossible to avoid house dust mites. They feed directly on the tiny flakes of skin which everyone constantly sheds. On the other hand, feathers and down do not provide any nutrients for mites.
