Our story is unique as any other story, but all of those stories have something in common - there are people behind them, who want to bring something new to everybody around.Who are we? We are a young couple - Maks and Iryna with our little daughter Daryna. Since Maks is working on a computer all the time, he always used a desk mat. But his desk mat often didn't satisfy him, it was bad for both writing and computer use when using a mouse, there was no place where to fix the pen, the mat slip around the table and most importantly, it didn’t have a wireless charger. These nuances prompted him to create his own mat and launch it on Kickstarter. We were very surprised to see how many people supported us, as they have the same problems with desk mats. So Now, After successful campaign on Kickstarter we are ready present LeMat to you.
"My name is Max, and one day an incredible idea flashed in my mind - to create a desk mat that helps people stay more organized. "
It all started with an idea
During a family dinner, Irina's parents mentioned a friend who sold personalized items on Etsy. The idea captivated Maxim and Irina. They decided to start crafting exquisite and functional home goods and selling them on Etsy. That's how LeMat was born in 2020. In 2021, Maxim came up with the idea to create a desk mat for computers.
