How It All Began.  


The story of FOLDiMATS begins with Helen and Steph's observation of a gap in the market for play mats. While many options were available, none struck the perfect balance between quality, functionality, and aesthetic appeal. Leveraging Helen's expertise in textile design and Steph's extensive background in childcare, they embarked on a mission to create a play mat that would redefine standards. Thus, FOLDiMATS was born.
