Each luxury bathmat is handmade in South Africa as part of a collaboration between Krafthaus and AuraDecor Designs.
What is the process used in creating the luxury felt bath mat ?
Each premium quality bathmat is made using the ancient art of felting. The wet felting technique is a process used to create a dense non woven fabric by matting, condensing and pressing fibres together to create a flat piece of fabric. The quantity of layers of combed or carded wool determines the thickness of the product. Each bespoke luxury felt bath mat is 20.5 – 24.5 micron. As this is a hand crafted product slight variations in size and thickness may occur.
Why is wool a good choice for a bath mat?
Unlike cotton, wool has a tendency to ‘wick’ water away from your skin and is able to absorb up to 30% of its weight in water. A bath mat made of wool will dry more quickly than one made from cotton and has a luxurious feel underfoot. The Krafthaus bath mat is patterned in an elegant ‘Pen sketch’ design and is offered in a colour choice of charcoal grey and natural or hydra blue and natural.
