“Passage is an ode to the architecture of a wave, an experience common to the coastline of Australia. When a wave arcs, for a moment in time, there is space created. In this instant, decisions must be made about what to do. As oceans warm and sea levels rise, they must be made quickly. To ride a wave is a journey, and through its arc, a window of hope can be seen.” – Karina Seljak
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.
