Sister company Prolana is founded. Right from the start we used only wool from sheep that had never been treated with pesticides. And we’ve been doing so ever since.
Prolana helps initiate an organic cotton project in Nicaragua. Today more than 150 smallholders grow organic cotton under the umbrella of this project.
Prolana uses only certified organic cotton. No EXCEPTIONS. By 2000, we start using only certified organic pure new sheep’s wool for bedding and mattresses.
Prolana becomes the first company to use fairly traded natural latex from FSC certified rubber plantations to produce mattresses.
The organic cotton that Prolana uses comes from farmers and processors that have been certified by the FairTrade Labelling Organization (FLO) International.
Prolana partners with Grün Komfort to exclusively introduce a new line of premium bedding in North America.
