275 years roviva

roviva stands for 275 years of innovative strength, craftsmanship and passion as well as 275 years of commitment to the production site in the heart of Switzerland.

Without tradition no future

It was in 1748 that Johannes Roth founded his small, innovative horsehair spinning mill in Wangen an der Aare. Under the simplest of conditions, he processed horsehair into upholstery material for mattresses and seating. He and the following generations have done pioneering work in the field of sleep over the past 275 years. They never stopped tinkering and constantly developed new, innovative sleep systems for perfect sleep enjoyment. Today, more than ever, we are committed to healthy sleep. We look forward to continuing our good-night story with you...
