Founded in 1882 by A. Gans, the company was originally run as a bed feather factory. During this time, the first cleaning machines for down and feathers were developed and made the product extremely popular as a filling material for bedding in the K.u.K. Monarchy in Vienna. Thus, in the pre-war period, in addition to the factories, about a dozen branches were gradually established.
After the Second World War, the range was extended to include bed linen, and in the late 1970s the new owners completely reorganised it and added exclusive products.
"Gans" is now continued by the new owner family in the 3rd generation with great attention to detail and in proven handicraft. A combination of tradition and modern "zeitgeist".
