Sustainability

Here at Wuhlen, we pride ourselves on animal welfare and sustainability. It has always been, and will always remain of the utmost importance that we always sell a product that forever proves to be sustainable.
​
Here in the Faroe Islands, we herd sheep for food. Every autumn, in the past ages up until this day and onwards, the annual sheep slaughter finds a place. We have laws and regulations ensuring animal welfare and every year before the slaughter we arrange for a veterinarian to ensure sheep welfare and wellbeing. This way we can also assure that the sheep rugs have the best quality and that the quality does not vary from product to product, although the products are very different.
​
In the olden days the wool of the sheep was used for various things but in newer times proved to be invaluable to modern society. Almost all the sheep wool, currently extracted in the Faroe Islands, has in past years been sentenced to ashes. To not offer the world this splendid opportunity of unique and old-fashioned, but yet modern, decorative rugs, seemed unwise.
​
By recycling and giving the rugs a new life in homes around the world, we not only reincarnate an otherwise burnt and disposed product, but we also keep alive a cultural heritage that would have been forever lost in time. Here at Wuhlen we proudly vouch for sustainability and recyclability in a world in desperate need of both.

Yours sincerely
The Wuhlen team
