HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY
Since day one in 2006, the Matuse mission statement is: to make product Ichiban (the best) by creating function-first, solution-specific innovations; to educate by telling a story, enhancing cultural and environmental awareness.
Matuse created the limestone-based Geoprene™ rubber that makes our wetsuits 30% warmer, 30% lighter and kinder to mother nature.
GEOFLEX is a material that has different elastic range than that our Geoprene. Geoflex is a limestone-based rubber that is engineered to provide maximum flexibility and unparallel fit. We utilized this material to create the new Butterfly-collar entry and the yoke pull-over. The idea was to develop a front-entry that was easy to get in-and-out of for almost everyone without taking water into the wetsuit. We manufacture in Japan and Cambodia using the best StateOftheArt technology for eco-friendly wetsuits
AMOR VINCIT is a core tenet of Matuse’s ethos. Since Day One.
