Spongia officinalis adriatica, fino or matapas as it is called in Greek, of Fina Silk as it is commonly known, is considered to be the best and the most expensive type of sponge with a very high diversity. It is compact, elastic and flexible. Its most characteristic feature is its texture, which is very delicate and makes it feel like silk. These sponges are mainly located in the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic, the marine area of Crete, the Dodecanese, Samos and Euboea at a depth of 100 meters.
The shape, size and weight of the sponges may be slightly different from the photos, since a sea sponge is a 100% natural product.
