A preference for natural textiles and living closer to the land has taken root worldwide. Moreover, with many people working from home in these uncertain times, spending more time and money on creating a comfortable environment in your home, wearing comfortable footwear and surrounding yourself with soothing and natural textiles, has become more important than ever.
There are a lot of fake synthetic fur products wherever you look, but ask yourself, why would you buy a product that is a mass manufactured copy of the real thing, if you can use the real thing which is by far better for you, the environment and will last so much longer and feels so much better.
The skins can be used on their own, as a throw, a rug or a great accessory for your nursery. Kids and pets both love them and naturally gravitate to them if there is a sheepskin on the floor or furniture. You can tailor make a bespoke order of anything from 2 skins to be sewn together, increasing the size to suit your space. They are great in front of fireplaces, not only as they are fabulous to sit on, but they actually protect the floor in case a coal should jump out as they put out fires! If you have wooden floorboards don’t even think twice! A sheepskin in front of your fire could save your house from burning down. They are naturally dirt repellant and an asset to your home in summer or winter.
In Europe, all children have a sheepskin from when they are born. Electric blankets do not exist, kids sleep on sheepskins, like it has been done throughout the ages, which I like to believe is how us humans managed to evolve and survive to where we are today. The circle of life!
