The traditional workshop of processing natural sponges has been active in the wholesale of sponges since the end of the 1800's. Our vast experience in the "art" of sponges, as well as our deep respect for this valuable sea organism and the devotion to our family business has distinguished us as one of the leading companies wordwide in this field.
We own a fleet of sponge fishing vessels and send our sponge divers to various locations in the world. Thus, we can guarantee our customers of the ability to provide any amount of commercial sponge they may desire. Given that the sponge is a natural product, we are obliged to maintain a timeline in the delivery of the products. Our vast clientele all over the world advertises in the best possible way the quality of our products and the professionalism of our services.
Our company's activities over the last 30 years have extended to the processing and sale of sea shells. We operate within the framework of the CITES Convention (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species Of Wild Fauna and Flora) under which no process and trade of any endangered species is allowed if not approved of first by CITES. This ensures ecological balance and that fishing does not go over the allowed limit.
Our company travels all over the world in search of only the best. We only choose Grade A, fully adult shells so as to avoid the fishing of immature or Grade B shell. We carefully cooperate with the local fisherman with first and foremost concern that the local population of shells is in healthy numbers so as to safely insure collections for the following years. For this reason, it is not possible to have stockpiles for all the shells.
