About Seljak

We are two sisters who imagine a world without waste. We're finding new ways of making and using beautiful things that are regenerative by design.

Seljak Brand launched in March 2016 and has since worked towards accelerating the transition towards a more circular economy. Our closed loop blankets are made from recycled merino wool offcuts from the factory floor of Australia’s oldest mill in Tasmania.

The blankets are 70% recycled Australian merino wool and a 30% blend of recycled alpaca, mohair and polyester for strength. Wool is a natural fibre that is incredibly hard to replicate – it’s a renewable resource, it is odour and stain resistant, antibacterial, lightweight, breathable and insulating.

After the blanket has enjoyed a long, adventurous life – they're cosy enough for indoors and durable enough for outdoors – we’ll collect it free of charge using Sendle, a carbon neutral courier service. Back at the mill, we’ll shred it and spin it into new yarn to make future blankets.

This circular model allows us to divert waste from landfill and create a luxurious and useful blanket for your cosiness.

About the Troopy Travel Cup

Developed exclusively for the show bag, only 50 of these travel cups have been made. 

Koskela commissioned one of our favourite ceramicists, Arcadia Scott, to interpret the linocut designs of Judy Manany onto a travel cup. 

Judy Manany is an artist at Elcho Island Arts. For Christmas 2019 we have been working with the community owned art centre to license artworks that depict Elcho Island life.

Located off the north-east coat of Arnhem Land, Elcho Island is resplendent with Pandanus trees and the primary mode of transport is a troopy (troop carrier). This scene has been captured on the travel cup, and the 50 people who get to take one home in their show bag are very lucky indeed!

*20 percent off discount excludes art, books, Loom rugs and social impact pendants.
