How it all began
TITANIA® Fabrik GmbH first started out designing and producing gas lighters and other household items in our local production facility. The first personal care product in the range – a pumice sponge – was discovered more by accident. How did that come about?
Due to Friedel-A. Kotte senior’s experiences during the war years, he started looking for an idea to keep food and drinks warm for longer. But with the technology available at the time, the insulation or foam around the container was disproportionately thick and therefore impractical. However, the material did have excellent cleaning properties. That is how the pumice sponge was created, and it is now one of the more than 1,300 cosmetics products in our range.
