Germany is known for it's Sausages, Sauerkraut, Oktoberfest and the famous "Made in Germany quality". We were intent on discovering this "quality-promise" for ourselves… and what better place to start, than with a visit to our headquarter in Camphausen close to the boarder of France.
For those who don't know:
Ha-Ra® was founded over 40 years ago by Hans Raab who developed a way of producing combinations of cleaning fibres that only require water to produce effective cleaning results. During the cleaning process, millions of extremely fine hair-like special fibres loosen even the most stubborn dirt and grease, which are then bound together by the fibres and water and collected into the cloths and cleaning pads. This pioneering invention led to the beginning of a tremendous success story, and these fibres are still so unique that Ha-Ra® has applied for over 150 individual patents.
Production Manager Mr. Straß explained on our tour through the production that only selected high-quality European microfibres are used to create the professional Ha-Ra® fibre systems. They have been especially adapted to the needs of the cleaning industry. No other manufacturers of comparable fabrics produce with as little textile auxiliaries. Ha-Ra® offers more than 12 different fibres and over 150 different products for various surfaces and cleaning tasks - all made in Germany with the utmost care and highest possible standards. It was an fantastic experience to explore each production step from the raw material through the various quality checks to the finished product.
Very special thanks to Isabelle Flaetchen for the fantastic presentation of the organic plantation for our harabelle product line in Martano. Guiding us through all the different areas with Aloe Vera, Olive Oil and fresh Herbs with her extensive experience made us feel we are right in the middle of these wonderful and rustic plantation in Italy.
Meeting all these like-minded people and colleagues showed us again how important it is to teach the world about using safe cleaning products at home to avoid toxic chemicals. Taking the best from our ancestors and combining it with the best of the 21st Century is what Ha-Ra® stands for - worldwide!
