Hydrea London's parent company, the Natural Sea Sponge Company began in a small warehouse in Kalymnos, Greece which still operates today. The company was started (and continues) to support the old traditions of sponge fishing in Greece and Tunisia; they help maintain the high standards of the industry and work closely with the divers to support the local communities. In 1996 when the company became Limited, they introduced other natural bath care accessories to complement the range of natural sea sponges and so Hydrea London was born. In keeping with the high standards for their sponges, Hydrea London quickly became known as the most ethical and best quality brand available. Hydrea London is now an international brand supplying luxurious bodycare all around the world, and the warehouse in London still hand processes the sponges in the old traditional style.
Hydrea London are proud to be at the forefront of ethical sourcing and manufacture - this and producing top quality, functional products are the driving forces behind the company. Over the years they have driven the demand for environmentally sound products and helped increase consumers choice and awareness, with only the finest natural and organic raw materials being sourced, and most products are made in the UK and Europe. Hydrea London specialise in FSC® certified wooden products, organic loofah and much more! They have always had a very close relationship with their suppliers (they set high standards for environmental and ethical practices and social accountability), and through frequent site inspections Hydrea London ensure these standards are met. Hydrea London also support local communities when sourcing their natural materials from around the world.
