Lands' End does not use, purchase, or source live plucked down which is a barbaric practice that is completely out of line with our values. As an industry leader, we have worked tirelessly to operate with a zero tolerance policy to ensure that our suppliers, vendors and all involved parties of our supply chain adhere to the highest standards of compliance and ethics. Our customers can be assured that we are fully committed to having a responsible, trustworthy, and ethical supply chain. We take all allegations extremely seriously and we vigorously investigate each one of them to ensure that all needed actions are taken, including suspending any supplier that does not live up to our high standards.
That’s why we’re so proud of our partnership with Allied Down. For over thirty years Allied Down has provided the highest quality down while maintaining a commitment to humane and environmentally conscious business practices. Allied submits itself to third-party testing to ensure its down is high quality and humanely sourced, and Allied uses recycled water, relies on renewable energy, and avoids harmful chemicals.
In fact, we’re so confident of Allied Down’s quality that we’ve included a QR code on the coat’s tag that allows you to track the source of its down with a simple smartphone scan.
