WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF FJA-OEYEN
FROM CLOTHES ONTO DOWN
During World War Two, as a tailor, Frans Jozef Albert (FJA) Oeyen was sent to Germany to mend suits.
There, he slept on a bag filled with straw and feathers: his very first contact with down.
After the war, the profession of tailor was called into question by the rise of ready-to-wear clothing. So in 1958 Frans decided to create duvets. In the meantime, his son Gust had turned out to be a top salesman. They enthusiastically put their shoulders to their new joint livelihood: handmade duvets with high-quality down.
Fja-Oeyen down duvets and bed linen are tailor-made to your exact requirements. Our family company has also been recognised as artisanal craftspeople by the Belgian Federal Public Service for Economy, SMEs, and Self-Employed and our products proudly carry the ‘Handmade in Belgium’ label of authenticity.
We handmake the very best down duvets and accessories at our workshop in Mol. You’ll discover the quality is unbeatable. Made by hand, our products follow a very short chain to you. You’ll find our products exclusively in our showrooms, our webshop and at trade shows, exhibitions and fairs. Would you like to take a look behind the scenes? No problems! Make your appointment for a visit to our workshop, our down-laundering facilities and our showroom in Mol.
Fja-Oeyen is a pioneer when it comes to sustainability. We are up-front and proud of our products, using excellent quality materials and designs that, when treated correctly, ensure your duvet will last a lifetime.
Fja-Oeyen was there when EN 12934, the standard for down quality, came to life. A number of different elements helped to define it, including the colour and origins of a down filling, the species of bird the down comes from and the ratio of down and feathers, expressed as a percentage of the total filling. We have taken extra steps to make sure our products stand out.
