The Brand

KAUFFMANN bedding combines our passion for refined down and feathers with attention to detail – in top quality that is unique in the world.

Quality and tradition reunited

The merger of centuries-old traditions enables us to create bedding of a unique quality: Our leading company for quality bedding was created through the merger of the long-established company Sanders, founded in 1885, and KAUFFMANN, a company which has been active in the branch since 1823.

Our passion is refined down and feathers. Our profession is to provide the finest down duvets of the highest quality. Manufactured with attention to detail – for satisfied, well-rested customers in over 40 countries around the world.

The German textile company Sanders from the tradition-steeped fabric-making town of Bramsche is the leading company for the processing and refining of the finest fabrics. Our seal “Bramscher Tuch” (finest fabrics from Bramsche) has been a guarantor for top quality for centuries and enjoys global recognition.

In this way, we unite refined top-class down and the finest textiles to create an overall artwork of the highest quality.
