Geographical guarantee of origin "Furniture Made in Germany

"Made in Germany" has an excellent reputation worldwide. Sustainable quality, design and engineering skills always resonate with this indication of origin.

One's own home should be a place of well-being. Furniture made in Germany enjoys special trust. With the new geographical guarantee of origin "Furniture Made in Germany", consumers can be sure that they are buying products made in Germany. The mark stands for the high quality of German furniture manufacturers, for innovation, durability and healthy living. The requirements have been laid down by the renowned German Institute for Quality Assurance and Labelling (RAL) in a so-called definition of terms and requirements RAL-RG 0191.

The criteria are extremely demanding and stand for a high quality standard. Construction, assembly and quality testing take place entirely in Germany. In addition, the manufacturing process relevant to quality must take place predominantly in Germany.

Compliance with the requirements is monitored by the German Furniture Quality Association (DGM) on behalf of the German Furniture Industry Association (VDM). The label was developed and introduced by the VDM, the DGM together with RAL. "With this, we have introduced certified proof of quality furniture from Germany," says VDM Managing Director Jan Kurth.
