Unser Weg zum hochwertigsten und nachhaltigsten Spielsofa Europas 🌍

Our way to the highest quality and most sustainable play sofa in Europe 🌍

When we started with the idea for our play sofa in autumn 2020 and had the first samples produced, they came, like most toys, from China.

China, as the world's production site, is the first point of contact for many when it comes to realizing product ideas for the first sample. Access to producers and processing is often uncomplicated and, above all, fast.

It was clear to us from the start that sourcing our products from the Far East, combined with high CO₂ emissions and supply chains that are not 100% transparent, is not an option for us in the medium term. 

Therefore, during our test phase and after only a few weeks on the market, we immediately started to set up a European supply chain.

By the late summer of 2021 it was ready: our heart of the sofa, the high-quality PUR foam, was now manufactured in Germany, zippers, yarn and our velor fabrics in Eastern Europe, not far from our company headquarters in Berlin. The sofa was sewn and assembled under the highest quality standards and TÜV-tested in the Czech Republic.

Our supply chain was more transparent, 56% less CO₂ than before and now 100% OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified. Another important criterion for us: due to the proximity to Berlin, we were able to visit the production regularly and get an idea of ​​the production conditions on site.

Today, another year later, we are proud to say that we have been able to improve our supply chain once again: even more sustainable thanks to a further 31% CO₂ saving compared to our previous supply chain (source: Carbon Care calculator. Based on comparison of transport routes and transport type ) and finally 100% Made in Germany . 

Funzy production in Germany in summer 2022

Our goal:
to have the Funzy play sofa in Germany from a single source and in one place, from the foam production and sewing to the finishing and packaging just a few hundred kilometers away from Berlin, has come true.

Our play sofa is now:

  • 100% Made in Germany
  • 100% OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified
  • TÜV and GS tested

and thus the highest quality and most sustainable play sofa in Europe. 🥳

But that's not all. We continue to work every day on ways to reduce our emissions as a company, shorten transport routes, save on packaging and so on.

Climate change has gone from being an abstract warning to a very real threat. We as companies and entrepreneurs have a crucial role to play in the change of direction that lies ahead of us - so that we and our children can continue to enjoy our planet with joy and joy for a long time to come. 🌍🌳
