Responsible Down Standard

UNIQLO supports the Responsible Down Standard (RDS) to protect and enhance the welfare of geese and ducks. As an international standard, RDS helps ensure that all aspects of the breeding and keeping of these animals are safeguarded. The common goal is to give traders and consumers more certainty when buying down products.
