For three generations Industrias Tobía's been manufacturing sleep systems for people to rest, recharge energy, create bonds and interact.
"Natural Sleep™ is sleeping without additives, in a natural way, as we do in our mother's womb."
We want to promote moments of connection and show our commitment to those who get up early and those who stay up late, the sleepy heads and the lazy, we want to fill them all with energy so that their days are more complete.
If we also want to do it for much longer, we have to be environmentally responsible, make it easier for tradition and innovation to go hand in hand and build bridges to facilitate the circularity of the system.
