Seljak Brand's eco-friendly blankets can be used as a throw for the couch and the bed, or taken outdoors and used as a picnic rug or camping blanket.
For every 10 blankets sold, Seljak sends one to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre - an organisation that helps asylum seekers feel welcome, safe, and supported in Australia.
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.
Sam and Karina Seljak are two sisters who imagine a world without waste. Since 2016, they've found new ways of making and using beautiful things that are closed loop by design. Globally, 87% of all disposed textiles are sent to landfill or incinerated, releasing harmful greenhouse gases.
Seljak Brand launched in March 2016 and has since worked towards accelerating the transition towards a more circular economy. Working 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.
