A French innovation, FibreAir® is a fiber in which 97% of air micro-bubbles are injected, giving it incredible flotation properties.
Originally, this type of fiber was intended for thermal insulation, but one day, due to a handling error, a sample became so inflated with air that it floated!
From this incident was born a beautiful success story...
Ergonomic, the fiber

After many years of research and development to optimize and adapt it to the child's morphology, the FibreAir® is today manufactured by specific machines in a factory dedicated to its production.
Plouf was the first brand to benefit from the NF EN 13138-1 standard "Buoyancy aids for learning to swim" in 2001.
FFN partner !
As a specialist in children's floatation suits and holder of the worldwide patents for FibreAir®, Plouf has reassured more than a million parents around the world since its creation.
To continue this work on drowning prevention and help learning to swim, Plouf becomes a partner and official supplier of the French Swimming Federation.
And now, Plouf uses its know-how to create the floating mattress! Ideal for the whole family, it serves as a mattress to lie comfortably at the water's edge and also allows to float on the water.
With the quality of its FibreAir®, it floats up to 130 kilos and folds for easy transport. Plus, even when torn, it still floats!
