It all started with brother + sister duo, Evert and Yvonne Brandenburg. They owned and operated several coffee shops and cafes in Amsterdam in the 80’s + 90’s. Their most well-known location was Future Coffee Shop, the birthplace of Futurola (1996).
In the business of importing + exporting various smoking products for their stores, Yvonne and Evert saw an opportunity to develop superior items to those which were widely available at the time. This led them to seek out the highest quality, thinnest Rolling Paper, made in France with organic arabic gum from the acacia tree. Another iconic item designed by the Brandenburg’s is our King Size Cone Roller, which truly revolutionized the smoking culture in Amsterdam.
