OUR STORY

SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT
Lifson Products was born out of the home garage of the Lifson family. The late Eric Lifson wanted South Africans to have the very best sleep experience and he believed that a superior quality down duvet and pillow had a role to play. He travelled to Germany, France and the USA to apprentice in the time-honoured European tradition of making down and feather bedding, to bring South African’s bedding that promised warmth, softness and comfort. He believed that everyone should experience the superiority of a down and feather duvet or pillow and set out to do that.
This humble desire, born from small beginnings, remains the ultimate purpose of Lifson Products, more than 25 years later. In a culture of mass production and mass consumption we chose to manufacture mindfully. We believe in making a fine product in smaller quantities so we can ensure that every duvet or pillow that leaves our factory floor, and has the privilege of making it into your home, delivers on its promise of warmth, softness and comfort.

WHY HUNGARIAN GOOSE DOWN?
We travelled the world to find the best possible down and feather fillings for our products. Due to the extremely cold Hungarian Winter the geese of the region grow significantly larger down clusters. These larger clusters mean you need fewer clusters to fill a duvet that still gives you the warmth and fluffiness you associate with a high-quality down product. Fewer clusters mean the duvet is superbly warm yet remarkably light at the same time and has earned the stamp of ‘warmth without weight’– the true distinction of a quality duvet. After years of working with Hungarian Goose Down – from the raw material itself and the farmers who care for these geese, we say without reservation that it is the best money can buy.

THE LIFSON PRODUCTS DIFFERENCE

We supply the public, leading hotels, guest houses, retailers and interior decorators and stylists with the best quality down and feather, and down alternative bedding solutions. We source our raw materials from ethical and reputable European farms and can trace our raw materials back to the farms from which they came. Our duvets, pillows and scatter cushion inners are all made in our factory in Cape Town.

Our small team of artisans and bedding specialists, some who have been with us since we opened our doors in 1994, place a high value on small batch manufacturing. We never mass produce and as a result we stand by the quality of our products. Our Royal Comfort Range of down and feather duvets and pillows comes with a two-year guarantee against faulty workmanship and material defects.

As a family business, we are deeply invested in the sleep health of our customers and every product is scientifically calibrated to offer a high-quality duvet or pillow that delivers warmth, softness and comfort. We believe that everyone should experience a down or down and feather product and we have created a product to suit all comfort levels and every budget.
