By strictly using 100% natural materials for our beds and mattresses, we harness all this energy and kindly offer it to you. Every natural material raised with rain water and kissed by the sun, accumulates the sun’s everlasting energy. The longer they stand under the sun’s watch, the more they brim with sunshine. We make mattresses, furniture, linens and accessories.

In keeping with our commitment to continual improvement, we are planning to take the following actions this year: On reducing energy consumption:

2016: COCO-MAT operates in the industrial zone of Xanthi, in the wider region of Thrace, Greece. The infrastructure of the area allows the company to manufacture its products without any adverse noise pollution. The machinery is certified with the sign C.E. and as far as the level of noise is concerned, its contribution to the general noise is less than the limit imposed by E.U. legislation. The operation of COCO-MAT’s factory has the minimum possible harmful impact on the environment. The liquid waste of the factory is only that generated by the people and by ordinary cleaning. Concerning the operation of our stores in the U.S. we have eliminated light consumption according to the new technologies along with energy consumption. Our plan is to invest on increasing the use of daylight.
