CANDIA, Wake up in the Mediterranean!
The unique Greek company that creates handmade mattresses!
Candia was established in 1973 by Charalambos and Emmanouel Velivasakis. In a short period, being faith to the value of a good sleep, persistent about quality and with love towards nature, they managed to expand their activities. In 1980 they move the enterprise to their own building at the Spata region. Nowadays, a second generation keeps the family tradition going with the same passion and love but also with new ideas. They manage to set up a global network of stores through new partnerships in 12 countries in Europe and Asia.
Going through its fifth decade of operation, CANDIA offers innovative solutions and high quality sleep products that can serve the needs of a family but also of a large hotel, while dares to be different based on its belief that there is only one way to create a real masterpiece, that “by hand”!
The tradition of making a handmade mattress is passed down from generation to generation, and the company today has managed to penetrate the international markets with the handmade collection of Bodyfix mattresses.
The making of each BODYFIX mattress is done by hand at every stage of production. They sew together the Cotton Calico Pocket Springs by hand instead of using glue or other methods that require chemicals, thus ensuring the best quality possible but also stability of the materials. All remaining stages, from placing the natural materials to the mattresses’ finish, are done by our experienced craftsmen exclusively by hand!
CANDIA is one of the few mattress production companies in the world that makes its own springs, using cutting-edge equipment. Cotton Calico Pocket Springs are made of high-quality steel which maintains its resilience and flexibility.
Worldwide, CANDIA is the only company that processes fabrics with olive oil (Olive Oil Treatment). This is an innovation for which they are very proud, since it proves their dedication to quality and our never-ending attempt to develop sleep systems. Through this processing, the fabric offers antibacterial protection and all the beneficial qualities of olive oil, known since ancient times for its beneficial qualities towards the skin.
The handmade mattresses are undoubtedly the top choice for both luxury hotels and accommodations that want to diversify the sleeping experience of their guests. Therefore, handmade mattresses tend to be the new trend, especially in Boutique accommodation and Villas.
At the same time, Candia has a large collection of beds and bedside tables to offer. Impressive headboard designs with emphasis on high quality fabrics and attention to design details complete the decoration of the bedroom area. The designs cover various requirements, imposing beds that dominate the space but also beds for more atmospheric – Mediterranean rooms in earthy and pastel shades.
