Eco Products

According To their philosophy, KLIPPAN only uses natural fibres for their products such as wool, linen and cotton. A high quality fibre is essential for the final result. Production of our blankets and throws in their own factory, meeting all EU standards, allows KLIPPAN to control the total quality. A culture of environmental awareness within the company makes KLIPPAN work towards a friendlier and more environmentally sustainable production process. KLIPPAN has both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification.

Ecologically produced cotton has been a common concept for many years, but ecological wool has been a rarity. The reason is that insects have been a challenge with animals in wool production and until today it has been inconceivable to produce wool without any pesticides. A group of farmers in Bank Peninsula, New Zeeland, decided to address the difficulties of Eco sheep breeding. They have developed a process where they only treat the sheep with pesticide once, instead of repeatedly as had been practiced before. They give this treatment when the sheep is newborn which leads to no or negligible amounts of pesticides in the finished wool as it grows. Additionally no chemicals are allowed to be used in the crops or in the food that the sheep eats and no antibiotic is used during the breading process. A special washing method for the wool has been developed to again save the environment as much as possible. Finally, as a control over the entire process, an independent an accredited laboratory test approves each consignment of wool.

Bank Peninsula “ECO WOOL” is especially suitable for blankets and throws and KLIPPAN is exclusive in the market in using this material. Items with Eco Wool are specially labeled. KLIPPAN also decided to make all of the children’s blankets in “ECO WOOL”.

KLIPPAN also imposed extremely high demands on their dying process, where most chemicals are normally used. Exceptionally KLIPPAN has decided not to use chlorine bleach, or dyes that contain heavy metals, in their production process.

Animal welfare
KLIPPAN cares about animal welfare. Because KLIPPAN controls its whole production from beginning to end KLIPPAN can guarantee no animal cruelty takes place during the production of the wool used.
