STORY

SHEEP RUGS | Vacht Van Vilt - This amazing ethical company sources wool from small local farms only. They collect it personally to ensure quality and transparency in the well-being of the sheep. Unfortunately, over the last years sheep wool increasingly became a waste product. We need to make sure that this wonderful sustainable product will not become waste.

The leather free rugs are all handmade in Holland and felted with organic olive soap. Because the rugs are made from sheared wool, the artisan can make a rug every year from each sheep. It is a sustainable and honest product. At the back of the rug there's a felted rag of carded (combed) wool. This helps the rug to remain firmly together. These rags are carded from the artisan's own wool, confirming the sheep's origin and good treatment. Once there's enough carded wool for a rug, the rag is put on on shaved sheep wool. Now the felting begins, which is a lot of work! With water, soap and friction the wool fibers attach themselves to each other. After felting, the rug is thoroughly washed. When the rug is dry and clean, an authenticity stamp is sewn on. Each rug has it's own number, and is unique! The rugs come with their own custom-made bag.
