When explorers of the past moored on the distant shores of the Seychelles, they believed they had fallen upon the Forbidden Fruit in the biblical Garden of Eden. Scattered on the tropical beaches were palm seeds that unmistakably mirrored the front and bottom area of the female pelvis, thus reminding them of what they were missing at home.
They had chanced upon the coco de mer seed, the seed of the sea, a quite extraordinary palm seed only found on two islands in the Seychelles. It is the largest seed in the world, weighing up to 40 pounds! The coco de mer is rare, precious and protected, and a perfect representation of the beautiful sculpture that is the female form.
The coco de mer germinates from both a male and female plant. At Coco de Mer both genders are celebrated and there is a belief that between two consenting adults there should be no barriers to love. Like the coco de mer, we all come from two and therefore we honor both the feminine and masculine aspects of life.
“The coco de mer palm grows slowly, until its branches release once more its beautiful seed. Like our inspiration, we will grow patiently and strong, providing on the way tactile, sensuous and precious products that are made by the finest craftsmen.”
