Para obtener un edredón sostenible, utilizamos algodón orgánico, lyocell, cáñamo y lana merino. Respetando al máximo a los animales y al planeta. Una composición de materiales que resultan en un edredón nórdico que aporta comodidad y bienestar en tu cama.

Organic cotton

Organic cotton is grown and produced without the use of toxic substances.

We work hand in hand with organic agriculture to promote a more sustainable textile industry. According to a study by Textile Exchange, and after comparing it with another analysis on conventional cotton, organic cotton production is much more beneficial for the planet.

The Scalff duvet cover is 100% organic cotton. Made without dyes, resins and other potential allergens and irritants that could harm the consumer’s skin. Therefore, in addition to being a beneficial material for you, it is helpful to the environment. Organic cotton is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides, so it favors the conservation of biodiversity.

Currently, one of the main problems of textile processing is the pollution it produces. According to the World Bank, 20% of water pollution is due to textile production. However, an environmentally friendly development using materials such as organic cotton can save up to 765,000 liters of water.

Reduction of greenhouse gases 46%
Reduction in water consumption, mainly for irrigation 91%
Reduction of primary energy consumption 62%

Lyocell fiber is derived from wood pulp

Lyocell fiber is not only comfortable but also beneficial for people with sensitive or easily irritated skin. It can be continuously recycled, thus reducing waste disposal, saving energy, water and CO2, and promoting the circular economy.

Lyocell

Another option similar to organic cotton; more sustainable than traditional cotton or polyester. Both are far from being as environmentally friendly as Lyocell. This is a plant-based fiber that does not require toxic chemicals for its production.

The main component is wood cellulose and is obtained from well-managed forests, making it a fantastic renewable source. Its production uses 20% less water than the cotton process and absorbs 50% more moisture

Lyocell is characterized by great strength, efficient moisture absorption and softness to the skin.

Hemp

Hemp fiber is one of the most durable, resistant and softest fibers in the world

Another environmentally friendly material is hemp, with properties similar to flax. Although it does not need much water, energy, fertilizers or pesticides, it is one of the fastest growing plants.

It requires less than 50% of the water used for cotton and, in addition to this low water requirement, there is no soil erosion, as it can be grown for many years in the same place without exhausting the soil. A material that has not been genetically modified, biodegradable and made from renewable resources.

It is a non-toxic, recyclable and biodegradable material. Hemp cultivation helps prevent deforestation (it is faster than tree cultivation) and does not require chemicals for its development.

It is one of the fastest growing plants and does not need much water, energy, pesticides or fertilizers.

  • Low water requirement
  • Low energy requirements
  • Grown from renewable resources
  • No soil erosion
  • Biodegradable fiber

At ®Scalff we use the best natural fibers to produce our duvets, both vegetable and animal.

Merino wool

Merino wool is a high quality and biodegradable fiber

On the other hand, there are animal-derived materials such as organic wool, a certified type of wool that guarantees the non-use of pesticides neither on the pastures or on the sheep themselves. In addition, in order to protect the land and the decent treatment of the animals, cultural and livestock management practices are applied that make merino wool a sustainable material.

Produced sustainably and with a low environmental impact, merino wool is breathable and keeps you warm. This material holds up to 33% of its own weight in moisture, so it creates an insulating effect and regulates temperature. A very important fiber for the filling of the comforter.

Merino wool takes its name from the breed of sheep that produces it. It is one of the most appreciated wools, since the fibers of this wool are finer than those of the wool of other breeds. This feature gives Merino wool the characteristic of being much softer to the touch, it is a very good thermal insulator: it acts as a thermoregulator, as it absorbs or evaporates water depending on the external environment, facilitating the body’s adaptation to temperature changes.
Merino wool products are comfortable in cold and humid climates.
