Stop Yanking Feathers Off Live Ducks to Decorate Pillows

Target: Gary Friedman, CEO of Restoration Hardware

Goal: End the sale of down products at Restoration Hardware.

Restoration Hardware is a popular furniture store that started using an alternative to down in most of its products after learning about the horrors ducks face for down. However the company still continues to sell down decorative pillows. We must act now to demand that this company stop selling down altogether.

Ducks used for down typically live in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food and water. Every six weeks, ducks have their feathers plucked from them all while still conscious. This starts as early as 10 weeks old. The plucking is done without any painkillers, and wounds are a common occurrence.

Sign this petition and demand that Restoration Hardware get rid of all its down feather products. No animal should suffer for a pillow.


Dear Mr. Friedman,

Despite knowing the horrors ducks trapped in the down industry experience, your company continues to sell down pillow inserts for decorative pillows. There are many cruelty-free alternatives, some of which you are already utilizing. It is time to take full advantage of these products that do not harm ducks.

Ducks used for down are typically trapped in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food, water and the outside. Starting as early as 10 weeks old, the ducks have their feathers plucked every six weeks. This is done while the ducks are still conscious and without painkillers. The rough plucking often leads to wounds.

No animal should suffer for a pillow. Please consider ending all your sales of down products and only use cruelty-free alternatives instead.

  1. Will definitely be boycotting Restoration Hardware till they stop their participation in the horrible torture and killing of innocent ducks.

  2. Boycott the “RESTORATION HARDWARE” and spread the word across …loud and clear..Until these greedy profiteering stop the Barbaric act of removing the feathers from innocent Birds. Obsessed with money and greed they do not see the pains and suffering these poor animals undergo. How pathetic is this?

  3. end the use of these products now that costs great lives now.
