Sleeping: Ecology and Innovation
New products from Heimtextil exhibitors in Smart Bedding

Exhibitors such as Rummel, Withings Sleep oder Outlast Technologies provided innovative suggestions for sleeping solutions the last Heimtextil. Sustainability is also moving further into focus, for example with Belnou, Traumina or OBB in the form of increasingly mature recycling and cradle to cradle approaches or the conscious focus on organic qualities, origin and tradition.
