We are Rodo and Nikos.
We were born and we live in the beautiful city of Chania, on the island of Crete. Our love for nature, our respect for our ancestors’ land, our appreciation for all the gifts presented by this land, our knowledge of the power of the herbs that flourish here in such abundance and of their properties; all of them jointly stand as our guiding light in all that we are trying to accomplish. From the very beginning of our endeavor, we were fortunate to receive the precious help and support of our fine associates.
Beyond our mutual “professional goals”, together we share the beautiful burden of family, as we decided to unite our lives in 2012, and now are proud parents of two children that give further meaning to our… redolent lives!
«Having graduated from the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technological Educational Institution of Crete, my main concern is to provide practical solutions for every stage of the production and manufacturing process».
«Having completed my core studies in the School of Agriculture at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and then pursuing post-graduate specialization in Environmental Protection at the University of Crete, my efforts focus on finding ways to “marry” scientific knowledge with the traditional common practices of my ancestors».
Our products and identity have been inspired by nature.
So was our name.
Seeking a name that comes from nature, we chose the part through which plants breathe and feel and the one that gives (together with the flowers) a stronger taste to our herbal teas.
This part of the plant is the leaf, or «tofillo» in Greek.
