Wool with Nordic sense of wellnessBonden Finnish lambwool textiles cover the needs of non-toxic textiles for every season of the year. With non-treated Finnish lambwool we combine other natural materials that are functional by nature to bring out the special characteristics of these natural raw materials such as breathability and dirt/water repellent features. With it, we use only other nature-based materials with the minimal ecological impact such as natural, undyed European linen, organic, GOTS certificated cotton (Global organic textile standard yarns).
100% Finnish lamb wool
- As being non-treated material it is has very delicate and natural hand feel and beautiful natural shades from white to greyish black and brown
- The Finnish lambwool yarn we use has 3% of lanoline left in it, which makes it extra soft and gentle to the skin (by default the wool industry chemically extracts lanoline from the wool and sells it forward for the cosmetic industry)
- Finnish lamb wool is used almost year around in the variable climate conditions of the North, so it has water repellent properties too.

100% wool, handmade felt
Wool used for hand made felt is from Finland. Finnish lambs wool has a neutral colour scale from white to greyish black. The material being used is undyed in its natural colours. The material is organic. In the manual wet felting process the wool fibres are fastened together by hand with hooked needles, water, abrasion and pressure. The material has a warm and soft hand feel as well as handprint of the artisan. Each product made by this method is unique.
100% wool, felt
The wool used for our felt product is carefully selected merino wool (mulesing-free) from Spain, Portugal and South Africa. In the wet felting process, the pre-felt is manually compressed with water, abrasion and pressure. The material has a warm and soft hand feel. Each product made by this method is unique.
Inner pillows used in cushions are made of recycled (98%) PET bottles. The made wadding is allergic free.
We try to minimize packing waste by not using plastic at all in our packing. Bonden products are packed in user-friendly bags made of Finnish renewable wood fibre.
