Dune is a connection to land and light. It is camping in the sand dunes of Central Australia, an exploration of gorges, ancient rock and ochre pits under the ever-changing and vast dome of the sky. The luminescence of dusk and earthly dust is woven together to express the surprising softness within the desert environment. Dune – at once grounded and becoming one with space.” – Karina Seljak 

For every 10 blankets sold, Seljak send one to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre - an organisation that helps asylum seekers feel welcome, safe and supported in Australia.

 

Care:
Because this is a naturally antibacterial product, the easiest way to clean your blanket is to air it out by hanging it in the sun (plus it's environmentally friendly). Spot clean dirty marks and spills with lukewarm soapy water. If necessary, machine wash at maximum 30 degrees with a wool wash and hang dry. Reducing machine washing extends your blanket’s life and reduces energy and water consumption.

Maker Profile

Seljak Brand

Sam and Karina Seljak are two sisters who imagine a world without waste. We're finding new ways of making and using beautiful things that are regenerative by design. 

Seljak Brand launched in March 2016 and has since worked towards accelerating the transition towards a more circular economy. We work with Australia’s oldest mill in Tasmania and a 92-year-old weaving mill in Lithuania to weave recycled wool blankets that are closed loop. 

The blankets are made from a minimum of 70% recycled merino or lambswool and a 30% blend of other fibres (mohair, cotton and alpaca) and poly for strength. Wool is a natural fibre that is incredibly hard to replicate – it’s a renewable resource, it is odour and stain-resistant, antibacterial, lightweight, breathable and insulating.  

After a blanket has enjoyed a long, adventurous life we’ll collect it free of charge using a carbon neutral courier service. Back at the mill, we’ll shred it and spin it into new yarn to make future blankets. This circular model allows us to divert waste from landfill and create luxurious and useful blankets.
