Heeeeeeello you guys!
I’m very exited about this brand, because I’ve been looking for something like this for quite a while. What? Cruelty free sheepskin rugs! Yes you heard it, there’s actually no one killed in the process of making this rug. And that’s Ah-mahzing! As far as I know Vacht van vilt is the only one in Holland that makes them this way, but correct me if I’m wrong.
Because they buy their shaved sheepskins at the farmers themselves, they get to see whether sheep are treated well or not.
The wool is washed with organic olive soap and everything is handmade, from the felt under layer till the top layer that is felted on the bottom layer. That is a lot of manual labour! After it’s done, every rug gets its own stamp and number so no two rugs are the same. Also, you can get a rug in every size you need…they make it up to 3 by 3 meters!
If you want to take a look at the rugs, they’re for sale at Springers interieur and the shop Leef located in Meppel. But if you like to buy them now, you can do that on the vachtvanvilt website.
PS: If you want to use your sheepskin, never ever show it to your cat…#lostmysheepskintomykittykat
