WHY PYRENEES WOOL FOR OUR MADE IN FRANCE PLAIDS?
Wool is a fascinating living material, known for its robustness and warmth. It is said to be a material that breathes: it has the capacity to retain air and water vapor in its fibers and then expel it. It is thanks to this mechanism that wool regulates heat to keep you in a soft and temperate cocoon. By absorbing up to a third of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, as well as air, wool constitutes a real protective barrier against the elements.
Since the dawn of time, humans have used wool to protect themselves and create a nest where life is pleasant. In fact, wool fibers do not produce static electricity, so they do not capture dust. It is a material which adapts perfectly to your interior thanks to its hypoallergenic properties ( which do not cause respiratory or dermatological allergies ).
WOOL WORKING, AN ANCESTRAL KNOW-HOW
Wool represents more than 10,000 years of history between people and herds all around the world. From breeding to weaving, traditions are perpetuated generation after generation. In the Pyrenees, this ancestral know-how is protected by enthusiasts, lovers of their land and tricolor craftsmanship.
Our wool comes from a farm south of Pau. Once or twice a year, the sheep and sheep are shorn for their comfort and well-being. The kilos of wool collected are then transported to Haute-Loire.
It is to the last French wool washing center that we send our wool. An old continuous washing system allows wool to be washed and dried in one day, in water heated to 70°C with biodegradable soap.
Finally, our throws are made in a workshop in Tarn to offer you quality products, made in France.
From shearing to spinning, little hands are busy. They constitute one of the jewels of French craftsmanship. They are the ones who meticulously prepare the blanket that will soon join your living room.
A DESIRE FOR TRANSPARENCYour collection made in France
At Plaids Cocooning, we are part of a process of transparency which is in line with our values. Our commitments to you, to the French economy, and to the environment are at the heart of our priorities.
So, in a society that pushes us to always consume more, we have taken the gamble of limiting our stocks. We offer quality products in limited quantities to meet a need and not create it. A decision that goes against the grain in a system where profits and environmental costs have become the watchwords.
In accordance with this vision, it was logical to offer you a collection of throws made in France to highlight the jewels of our industry.
