in the Massif Central
We pay particular attention to the selection of our materials to guarantee quality and eco-responsibility.
Our wool, although “virgin”, is actually recycled wool. We get our supplies in Ardèche from a Scop which has developed a method to recycle the short fibers of wool. In a wool production after shearing, there is about 30% of loss because the production is shared between long fibers and short fibers. The long fibers are used for the textile industry. Unusable short fibers are most often destroyed.
Our partner and ourselves intervene at this time. Thanks to an ingenious and old system, our partner recovers fibers destined to be destroyed to make wool felt which we use to make our slippers warm and comfortable.
It's real recycling, giving new life to a product destined to be destroyed "circular economy".
