About Prolana

Healthy sleep is the basis for an active and fulfilling life. For over 30 years we have been producing natural bedding for children and adults in our factory in the Allgäu: ecological, healthy, sustainable and fair. At our production site in Waldburg-Hannober, mattresses, blankets and pillows are made - largely by hand. You will also find products for yoga, living and relaxation in our range. The majority of our articles are "made in Allgäu". Since many raw materials such as cotton or rubber do not grow here, we have established close partnerships with ecological and fair companies and organizations around the world.

The Prolana-Manufaktur was founded in 1987 by Norbert Baldauf in the Allgäu and stood for clear basic values ​​from the beginning: ecological, healthy, fair, sustainable. The initial spark for founding the company was the so-called "lindane scandal". Investigations had shown that the sheep's wool, which had previously been considered unproblematic, was sometimes contaminated with a terrifyingly high concentration of pesticides. This meant that environmental toxins had penetrated into a vital area of ​​life that had not been recognized as a danger zone until then - the bed.

Prolana was the first manufacturer in Germany to start producing blankets and mattresses from pure new wool without the use of pesticides. This pioneering act met consumer needs. The idea became a complete success and the name Prolana became a synonym for healthy, ecologically sound bedding. Since then, we have consistently developed our products with plenty of idealism, persuasiveness and courage. We support the nature-preserving production of raw materials, strengthen the independence of our partners from large global corporations and promote an “income to make a living” for the people who work for and with Prolana. The manual production to meet the highest quality standards is also one of our principles. Our customers should enjoy our products for a long time!

In order to live up to its responsibility towards people and nature, Prolana has initiated and sponsored innumerable projects both ideally and financially: whether it's a cultivation project for cotton from controlled organic cultivation in Nicaragua, the certification of a flock of sheep in the Indian Himalayas or the foundation of the Fair Rubber e.V. association to procure natural rubber from fair trade — all of these initiatives send out clear signals.

Premium quality from PROLANA
From baby sleeping bags to blankets, from mattresses to pillows - PROLANA products should make an active contribution to health. That is why we only use natural materials. Avoiding agrochemicals such as pesticides and chemical fertilizers not only benefits our customers, but also all people who are involved in the manufacture of a PROLANA product. A “pollutant-free” environment has long ceased to exist. That is why we have all products checked for residues by independent laboratories and can therefore say: PROLANA products are as low in pollutants as possible and, above all, are harmless to health according to the strictest criteria. We purchase raw materials for which there is no organic certification yet almost exclusively from companies we know personally. The entire production chain, starting with the raw material, meets the highest ecological standards.
