"Exemplary project. Leaders in a throw away industry. Incredible level of commitment to the production of a sustainable product."
– Jeremy McLeod, co-founder of Breathe Architecture
"These beautiful blankets should not be unique, in the future all textiles will be remade. Love that you are using the blankets to talk to & teach circular economy."
– Abigail Forsyth, co-founder of KeepCup
"Estimates of total global waste from offcuts range from 40 to 120 billion square meters of fabric. Seljak is one small example of a company actively thinking about how to unlock this potential value source."

Closing the loop
Seljak Brand makes recycled wool blankets out of factory floor offcuts. The blankets are made from a minimum of 70% recycled merino wool or lambswool and a 30% blend of other fibres (recycled 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 your 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 a luxurious and useful blanket for your cosiness.

Seljak Brand would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we work and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
