DESCRIPTION

What?
The pillow / pouff was designed for Ecolã, a brand from Manteigas that makes products with ecological and sustainable wool. It is a giant pillow that when folded and with the aid of the ribbons, becomes a comfortable chair. The straps are adjustable and, while open, the pillow is good for two (or more) persons to sit or lean.

How?
The pillow / pouff consists of 100% "burel" (wool with a specific mechanical treatment) and wool wadding. The wool does not suffer from exposure to herbicides and fertilizers and it's washed ​​with spring water abstracted at 1400m altitude, which has not been subjected to any kind of pollution. This purity and freshness allow the washing of the wool without the use of chemicals. The pillow / blanket may be composed of natural colors or others, obtained by dyeing the fibers with natural pigments from plants. The wadding has it’s own bag and can easily be taken out to wash the pillow.
