For the Enkev Group our raw materials and the quality of them are of strategic importance. Together with our joint venture partners and suppliers we try to control the quality of our raw materials from harvesting them, mixing them and processing them in one of our facilities.
Enkev products are made purely from natural fibres and natural latex. Nature constantly replenishes these materials, which have unsurpassed resilience, durability and ventilation properties.
Unlike petroleum-based products, the raw materials which Enkev uses are not in limited supply; they are constantly being replenished by nature and so the ecological balance is maintained. Animal hair and coco fibres are mostly disposable by-products of a different process. Enkev reuses these materials and gives them a new purpose in life.
Why Natural Fibres?
The human skin is not only a closed surface, but a breathing layer of our body. Through pores and our body hair the temperature of our body is kept under control. From the surface of our skin the humidity will have to evaporate into the air around us. If this process is blocked (by wearing a plastic coat, rubber boots, or sleeping on a synthetic foam) we feel very uncomfortable.
Natural fibres go well with our skin. (cotton shirt, shoes from real leather, wool ticking). The reason is that natural materials always have been part of the air-conditioning of a living thing. They are designed to transport the humidity.
