And, what’s new? A whole lot!
We are exceptionally proud of our award, “Company of the Year 2015” in the county of Mainz-Bingen with a special “Fair Trade”award which we received on March 24, 2015 in Ingelheim.
You all know the principles which are important to LA SIESTA and the company policies which we are committed to, but it makes us especially happy to have this affirmed from such a high position.
As you may have seen in our last blog entry, our project “Organic Cotton for Columbia” has begun.
Alexander returned to Columbia on March 14th. He is visiting local farmers and is seeing for himself the progress that is being made in preparatory work, as well as the fields where seeds have already been sown. Another very important project is underway: he is making preparations with the spinning company for the certification process. We’ve all got our fingers crossed.
In addition, our colleague, Christina Lennerth, was interviewed by the working@office magazine. She talks frankly about her difficulties at the start of her career and how she came to work at LA SIESTA. She could never have dreamed at her interview that two weeks later she would be going to the U.S.A. for three months to help set up the branch office in Miami. For those of you who are interested we have the complete article here at this link.
And finally, we have some really good news- our new luxury lounge hammock “Serenity” is finally available!
Because the first production samples did meet our standard of quality, we had to make improvements which took almost six months time. But now-just in time for the season- it is now in stock!
With its modern design and high quality weatherproof materials, the “Serenity” can become your favorite place in your backyard or patio. It offers a tremendous amount of room, is comfortably padded and has a tip protection. If that isn’t an invitation to “hang out”?!
That’s all for today with the current news. We wish good times and have our fingers crossed that spring will begin soon so that we can put up our hammocks!
