FAQ - Quartz Co.
01. WHERE ARE QUARTZ CO. PRODUCTS MADE?
All Quartz Co. products are conceived in Canada. Most of them are made in Canada. When it comes to certain products, however, Canadian-based production isn’t always the best or most sustainable option. In these cases, we partner with international factories that share our sustainable vision and take a vertical, localized approach to production. Our partnering factories are experts in their respective garment categories and produce entire garments locally, from sourcing to finished product. We select these partners not only for their expertise but for their responsible manufacturing practices, working exclusively with factories that ensure fair labour conditions and safe work environments for all their employees.

06. WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT FITS OFFERED BY QUARTZ CO.?
We offer five fits: the slim fit, the semi-fitted fit, the slim-straight fit, the regular fit and the oversized fit.
07. WHAT IS DOWN?
Down consists of a mass of silky fibers, in the shape of clusters, found underneath the wing and belly feathers of Palmiped, such as geese and ducks. It is this light, downy layer, which keeps waterfowl warm. The clusters, called plumules, are composed of about two million cottony filaments, referred to as barbules. These barbules point in every direction and float free of each other, creating a multitude of air pockets within the plumules. Since air is an excellent insulator, down provides exceptional thermal protection while remaining lightweight. Down quality is measured by its fill power that indicates the volume occupied (in cubic inches) per ounce of down. The higher the fill power, the more lightweight and insulating the down. Quartz Co. uses high quality down with a minimum fill power of 650 in³/oz.
08. WHY DO YOU USE DOWN TO INSULATE YOUR PARKAS?
We use down because of its unparalleled insulating properties, breathability and durability. A well maintained down parka will continuously regain its loft and continue to perform while adapting to the body, year after year. Moreover, down is a clean, natural renewable resource. All the down used by Quartz Co. is a by-product of the Canadian food industry.
09. WHAT TYPE OF DOWN DOES QUARTZ CO. USE?
We exclusively use 100% Canadian white duck down sourced from farms in Alberta and Quebec. Most of our parkas contain a blend that is 80% down and 20% feathers. The fill power of the down is 650 in³/oz., one of the highest on the market. As for our Expedition parkas, they are insulated with a blend of 90% down and 10% feathers for a fill power of 750 in³/oz. We select and limit our sources to ensure we can trace the origin of our down and thus certify the ethical treatment of the animals. All the down used by Quartz Co. is supplied by Feather Industries and is a certified by-product of the food industry. All our down is treated with the antimicrobial agent Ultra-Fresh, which prevents the growth of bacteria and fungus responsible for the development of unpleasant odors, thus ensuring freshness and durability.

10. WHY DO YOU USE FUR ON YOUR PARKAS?
Fur is a natural, effective and durable material. It provides high-quality protection which is perfect for the conditions in which our parkas are used. When it lines a parka hood, fur blocks the wind and snow, and creates a hot air zone that protects the face from frostbite.
11. WHAT KIND OF FUR DOES QUARTZ CO. USE?
We use coyote, Finnish racoon and blue fox fur. Our fur comes exclusively from Canada, the United States and Finland and our suppliers guarantee that it has been obtained in compliance with those countries’ laws regarding cruel trapping and farming practices towards fur-bearing animals.
