World-class hotel groups such as Fairmont, Shangri-La and Raffles share a common secret when it comes to providing guests the utmost comfort. They delight guests with the most luxurious selection of pillows, duvets and other bedding accessories from Northern Feather Canada. With international hotel brands further expanding their footprint in Asia, Northern Feather is a valuable and ready partner that carries 100 years’ expertise in manufacturing high-quality bedding products.

“We want to be in the top hotels in Asia. We want guests who stay in these hotels to enjoy our products,” says president Erik Nilsson, who is spearheading recent operational and strategic changes in the company to achieve further growth. Northern Feather is strengthening its core business of catering to the hotel and retail industries by improving workflow, increasing efficiencies in factory production and strengthening relationships with partners and clients.

Serving upscale markets in Canada, the United States, South America and the Far East, Northern Feather offers anti-microbial and anti-bacterial products with additional resilience and product life-span properties to withstand repeated wash and wear. It remains to be the only Canadian bedding manufacturer with in-house IDFL-certified testing, state-of-the-art processing and automated manufacturing. Its NF5 conditioning system, the duvet lock and the extremely accurate temperature rating system are some of the company’s innovations that bolster its propositions of value for money and product longevity.

Continuing its legacy of using only the finest materials for its products, Northern Feather will soon introduce Phase Change material, a state-of-the-art fibre developed in Europe. It works as a thermal regulator that reacts to changes in temperature to help the body cool down, and thus bring greater sleeping comfort.

Northern Feather foresees a big market for the product in Asia, where it plans to strengthen its presence through solid partnerships with retailers and manufacturers in China.
