WOOL FELT - A NATURAL QUALITY PRODUCT
HEY-SIGN has specialised in the processing of high-quality wool felt. Only 100 % pure new wool is used for the production of HEY-SIGN accessories, bags, furniture, lighting and rugs. The raw material is best merino wool and predominantly comes from Australia and New Zealand. The material is left natural; there isn’t any chemical treatment. The products are mainly manufactured by hand at the HEY-SIGN manufactory in Meerbusch – “Handmade in Germany”. Felt is an entirely natural material with plenty of positive effects: it is permeable to air and purifies the air. Its sound-absorbing properties ensure tranquillity and improve indoor acoustics. Felt balances humidity, insulates against cold and heat, repels dirt and absorbs unpleasant odours. Furthermore, wool felt is particularly kind to human skin.
EXCELLENT QUALITY WITH WOOLMARK
Due to its high-quality standards, HEY-SIGN was the only felt manufacturer, honoured with the Woolmark-label by “The Woolmark Company”. In 2007 felt from HEY-SIGN has been tested and certified according to the strict guidelines of “The Woolmark Company”. Since then, all HEY-SIGN products carry the Woolmark sign – the quality seal for pure new wool. All products in 2, 3, 5 and 8 mm thicknesses are additionally certified according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
HEY-SIGN manufactures its products based on high quality wool felt, a naturally renewable resource. After the elaborate production of wool felt, HEY-SIGN follows respectful treatment practices while processing. HEY-SIGN develops and manufactures in Germany. Parts of the collection are produced at workshops for adapted work and local suppliers for metal, wood and leather. The transport distances are short. This conserves resources and actively protects the environment.
