We pay particular attention to the selection of our materials to guarantee quality and eco-responsibility.
Although our wool is 'virgin', it is actually recycled. We source our wool from a Scop in the Ardèche region of France, which has developed a method for recycling short wool fibres. In the production of wool after shearing, there is approximately 30% of loss because the production is divided between long fibres and short fibres. The long fibres are used in the textile industry. Short fibres that cannot be used are usually destroyed.
That's when we and our partner get involved. Thanks to an ingenious and ancient system, our partner recovers fibres destined to be destroyed to make wool felt, which we use to make our slippers warm and comfortable.
This is real recycling, giving a new life to a product destined for destruction - the "circular economy".
