A warm blanket can be useful for those cold winter evenings or for a fresh spring picnic. Klippan: wool blankets with style.
This Swedish brand has been selling interior textiles since 1879. You can buy blankets, plaids, pillows, table linen, home accessories and children's items. Each design is both timeless and hip. Klippan promises quality by using the softest and purest fibres. And for the children, the brand makes special use of eco and organic wool. Super safe and super nice!
One of the materials Klippan uses is eco wool. To obtain good wool, many sheep farms treat their animals with pesticides. This is because vermin can crawl into the fur of the sheep and affect the wool. After years of research, some sheepfarmers came to the conclusion that it is not necessary to treat their sheep several times with pesticides. This gave rise to eco-wool. They treat the newborn sheep once with the necessary product and that should suffice for his whole life. The environment in which the sheep live has also not been treated with dangerous chemicals and antibiotics.
Animal welfare is very important to Klippan. That is why the brand carries out regular checks on their suppliers. As a customer, you can be sure of cruelty free wool. Klippan also has the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificates. The ISO 9001 is a quality management system that offers a systematic approach to organisations to achieve customer objectives and always deliver quality. ISO 14001 is an Environmental Management System that measures and improves the environmental impact of organisations.
All textiles are processed by Klippan in their own factory in Sweden. We know from the lambswool that it comes from New Zealand. Where the other types of wool come from, such as the Merino, cashmere, Gotland and the eco wool, is not exactly mentioned. What Klippan does release is that the wool is fully traceable to the sheep farms.
At Klippan every piece of mono-material is made. Recycling their home textiles could therefore be possible after a long lifespan. We at COSH! do not know whether they have any plans for this.
