Materialis is the creation of Extend Themes, and it has more than 10.000 active installs. Its creators are also behind other popular themes such as Colibri (top 15 on wordpress.org) and Mesmerize, both with 40k+ active installs, and the Colibri WordPress builder.

- Live editing inside the Customizer
- Header design available
- Sections: About, Features, Portfolio, Testimonials, Team, Contact
- Widgetized footer
- Parallax background
With Materialis free you can create landing pages or one-page websites. If you want more than that, you’ll definitely need to upgrade to Materialis Pro.

|Materialis Free||Materialis Pro|

|Page content sections||35+||150+|

- Pricing Table sections
- Newsletter subscription sections
