Pandora de Balthazar has an unusual story. Her love and passion for fine linens and luxury European style bedding came to her by way of a car accident. Her injury resulted in a broken neck and a life of pain until she went to Hungary to seek a water therapy treatment and later surgery. During her long recovery in Hungary, she was confined to a bed that was made up of fine linens and over-sized Hungarian goose down pillows that supported her body luxuriously and evidently, therapeutically. She came to find that this old European way of sleeping had been used for centuries as a health and healing practice.
During her time in Hungary, Pandora frequented museums and linen shops learning as much as she could about antique textiles, bedding, linens and why the Hungarian goose down pillows had been so integral in her healing process. The pillows were supportive, but naturally soft and when at rest, they were layered in such a way that the body felt no pressure which helped in healing more uniformly.
When she returned to the United States, she brought back the foundation for her business, luxury bedding and her European health system to promote a healthy sleep.
