Cotton/ Undisputed King
Cotton has a long history in the making of soft, comfortable clothes and textiles. Light, fluffy and naturally hypoallergenic, cotton is the undisputed king of COCO-MAT’s fabrics.
Coconut Fiber/ Our namesake, our soul mate
The husk of the famous tropical coconut fruit is coated in strong, resilient fibers, which are then sprayed with natural latex, shaped in layers, and used in our products. Coconut fibers are known for their durability and insulating properties.
Natural Latex/ Tear-shaped gifts
A colloid, milky fluid, which undergoes a special process to become soft elastic foam. The name given to latex (also known as rubber) by indigenous Equator tribes was “caoutchouc”, from the words “caa” (tear) and “ochu” (tree), because of the way it is collected.
Seaweed/ Underwater forest
It grows in the bottom of the sea and over the years has been used for multiple purposes, from a medical remedy, to insulating material, or sushi.
Eucalyptus/ Heavy shadow
The high eucalyptus tree is well known for its shadow and its healthy properties. Essential oil distilled from its leaves has a refreshing smell and is a natural remedy, beneficial for our breathing system.
Wood/ Longtime friend
Almost ever since man appeared on earth, wood has been used for building anything from tools to shelter, thanks to its durability and strength. By avoiding any chemical processes, we let its quality and grace live on.
Horsehair/ Precious mane
Horsehair is naturally waterproof and can absorb humidity to create a dry environment. Over the ages it has been used to make brushes, strings for musical instruments, and even toothbrushes in Napoleonic Europe.
Linen/ Cool and graceful
Linen has a rich history that dates back to ancient Egypt. Once a symbol of light and purity, it makes soft and light fabrics of exceptional strength, ideal for cool clothes that let our bodies breathe.
Down/ The stuff of dreams
Down has been associated with dreamy sleep due to its lighter-than-air grace. Deliciously soft, it can keep us warm, thanks to its inherent ability to let air pass through, while retaining temperature levels stable.
Wool/ All-weather shield
Although woolen fabrics are commonly thought to be more suitable for colder climates, wool in fact perhaps is the only natural material that can keep us warm in winter and cool in summer, thanks to its insulating properties.
Cactus/ Proud loner
An excellent survivor in any environment, this exotic plant has strong and durable fibers, which can regulate humidity and maintain a dry environment.
Lavender/ Sweet lullaby
A fragrant shrub, famous for its sweet scent and beneficial remedies, lavender is widely used in cosmetics, perfumes, balms and medicines. Its seductive aroma has been known to have relaxing effects.
A long, long time ago, before man walked the earth, the bright sun decided to bless all living creatures with its life-bearing gifts. Every day he would offer its light and warmth to the forest trees, the singing birds, misty rivers and deep seas. It gave companionship to the mighty cactus, standing alone and proud, amidst the wild plains and rocky mountains, for days and years and eons.
Every natural material bathed in rain water and kissed by the sun, accumulates its everlasting energy. The longer they stand under its watch, the more they brim with sunshine.
By using natural materials for our beds and mattresses, we harness all this energy and kindly offer it to you.
