The SANDERMANN journey began when we discovered that many Danish sheep breeders often burn the wool when they shear the sheep once or twice a year. Our initial mission was to collect this type of wool, have our own yarns spun, and prove that it could actually be used for clothing - something that has now been proven succesfully. Since the journey began we have travelled further into the world of Danish wool - a universe we have not yet discovered the limits to. We even started developing a technique for making cruelty-free sheep fur. We find great pleasure in working with wool; it is in itself a very sustainable material. Wool resists wrinkles, so that it doesn't have to be ironed, it has self-cleaning properties, which means you don't have to wash it, it's a naturally renewable fiber and it's 100% bio degradable. What's not to like?
When we are not working with wool, we source other types of waste materials such as deadstock textiles from the Danish textile industry. A lot of the fabrics we use have been lying on stock for years - some of them all the way back to the 70's. Some of these fabric rolls only contain a few meters, some contain a lot more. This means that some of our styles will only be produced in very limited quantities, which makes them very exclusive garments.
