In 2014, Fiber Freaks became one of the first brands to offer a wicking material specially designed for vaping. Made from pure cellulose fibers, it became the second worldwide wicking material brand, mostly in Europe and Asia. In 2015, Fiber Freaks introduced the first blend of cellulose fibers and cotton, extending its line up to 7 different products in order to cover all the different types of taste, vape styles and gears.Based on a startup business model, Fiber Freaks faced a major struggle that led to its end in 2017. Despite of having developed a complex technology, they were unable to achieve a sustainable industrial transfer.Mahood, creator of the company, withdrew from the vape business to focus on his family and enjoy vaping as a hobby again. Still passionate about wicking materials, he quickly started to rethink the whole process, obsessed with a clear focus: creating a wick that would cover all the different vape styles and gears without reducing the effectiveness of some particular aspects.After endless talks and research with the Research and Development engineer he was working with at the time of Fiber Freaks, they decided to create the Spinum company with an idea in mind: building all together their own Research Center and production factory to develop products for the vaping industry.
Enthusiastic about coming back in the vape world, Mahood started to get in touch with the different actors he was friend with to talk about the project. Xavier Mondy from Phileas Cloud Pro showed a great interest and they decided to gather their strength to create a new brand of wicking material.Xavier Mondy had proven his great capacity to discover and distribute the best high-end vape gears. In the vape business since 2011, he is the creator of My Free Cig, that became MFC Distribution then Phileas Cloud Pro.Xavier Mondy created Fiber n’Cotton and Mahood Gufu took charge of the design of the product and the brand.
Fiber n’Cotton wick was elaborated with a clear focus: creating a wick that would cover all the different vape styles and gears without reducing the effectiveness of some particular aspects. A perfect alchemy of fibers selection, product design, chemistry and mechanical engineering. Therefor our wicking material is a finely tuned blend of purified cotton and cellulose fibers, both chosen for their unique attributes.Our cotton is an African cotton, picked by hand to preserve the quality of the material. The purification process is perfectly balanced to ensure no break-in taste and a great absorption capacity.
Our cellulose fibers are the purest ones available. Specially designed for a specific sector of the food industry, they combine high capillary action, completely neutral taste and health safety at all temperatures.
Finally, our mechanical process was adjusted to produce a perfect density and balanced bond and alignment.
How does this impact our vaping experience ?
Like music, flavor is a composition. Cotton brings a distinctive roundness to e-liquids and goes deep in their rich bass notes while cellulose enhance the high ones.The performances
With a high absorption capacity, our wick is pleasant to use: drip your favorite e-liquid and it will be instantly absorbed. You will almost get rid of this annoying drop falling of your wick on the side of your dripper, and your tank will be ready to use as soon as you close it. The high capillary action will greatly improve your squonking experience, making it faster to load and reload.
last longer before affecting your flavor.A practical form factor
The form factor of our wick will help you on many ways. As we didn’t want to break your habits coming from the standards of most wicking material brands, we kept it this way, adding our own features.By using different fiber sizes, we balanced bond and alignment to help you pick the right amount of wick while keeping it nicely structured. And the long section fibers will facilitate the insertion into the coil, creating no lump at the entry of the coil when you pull your wick.
We wanted to bring you the best wick we could design, but health safety was fundamental in all the choices we made. Our wick has no traces of pesticides, our purification process has no impact on the final product, our cellulose fibers are from the highest grade available, and our bags and facilities follow strict food grade standards.
