Since December, 2013 Jalousier has been a registered Limited Liability Company based in Bulgaria.

Our family team managed to get to this point where you find us now. We already got your attention and are ready to provide a finished product ready to go into production, not a DIY concept.

Where did the idea come from?

The idea came quite naturally. After living in a sunny apartment, we noticed there are many benefits to having an apartment with several windows. By relying on the Sun’s rays to warm our apartment, we reduced our dependency on electric heat. Using the sun’s natural light meant that we didn’t need to use our switch lights as often. We were saving energy and money, but we were spending a great deal of time adjusting the 12 windows with 12 venetian blinds several times a day. It was a real hassle, so we took to the Internet to find a product to meet our needs. We learned that no such product existed… yet. That’s when we realized there is a smart solution to our problem. And the Jalousier was born.
