TULE GOOSE PILLOW COMPANY

What started out as The Mallard, a wild duck and goose processing plant in the Klamath Basin region of California and founded by “Tule” Trudy Eastman, today has evolved into the highly successful Tule Goose Pillow Co.

Hunters would come by the thousands to the Klamath Basin in the northeast corner of California to hunt each year. With no easy way to remove the feathers and prepare the birds for the long trip home, The Mallard would become a go-to destination. 

In 1979, wanting to use for the otherwise discarded feathers, Trudy founded the Tule Goose Pillow Company.

Each pillow and comforter produced by the Tule Goose Pillow Co. is made of 100% waterfowl down in the USA.  The goose feathers for pillows and comforters come from cold weather birds, white front speckled belly geese, snow geese and Ross geese. Trudy was known for her love of the outdoors and her hunter friends, unfortunately passed on in 2018, leaving a great legacy behind.  Today, the TuleGoose Pillow is continuing the traditions Trudy started and continues to provide the highest quality USA made pillows and comforters.  Visit the website for more stories at Tulegoose.com.
