Koutouzis natural sea sponges - Our company


This is the most popular sponge type. Its origin is the Mediterranean Sea (the Aegean Sea and the North Coast of Africa).

Its size varies from 3 to about 13 inches and can be found in two types.

- Forms. They have their natural, perfectly round shape (as fished)

- Cuts. Sponges that have been created from carving larger sponges.

They can be found either at their natural colour (brown) or bleached, depending on your choice.

It is mainly used by adults and children for bathing. It is extremely skin-friendly, does not cause allergies and, apart from being used for skin cleaning, it also removes dead cells. Many people also use it for general cleaning, because it soaks up large quantity of water and cleans at the same time itself, by shedding soap suds and dirt, without the need of much water (like synthetic sponges do). Also, it can be used for painting surfaces (e.g. wooden surfaces, walls). Its cellular surface creates harmonic and artistic shapes.
