Sometimes trying to find sustainable vegan throws and blankets can feel like an impossible task. Take out the wool, and your only option is acrylic and polyester most of the time. Well you’re in luck! Here at Wearth London we offer a range of gorgeously soft and beautiful vegan-friendly blankets, helping you relax with peace of mind that no animal products were included. Below are some of our favourite brands providing sustainable throw options:
With a focus on natural materials and traditional craftsmanship, Lüks is an ethical homeware brand which works with small family ateliers and master weavers in Turkey, using gentle, centuries old craft to create hand loomed textiles for home and travel. With a commitment to quality and a ‘buy less choose well’ mentality, Lüks offer a 20 year repair or replace guarantee on all of its products, which are woven from locally spun, GOTS and OEKO TEX certified cotton.

OEKO is the certification of the safety for products- it assures that no nasty chemicals are used in the processing and manufacturing of the material, for maximum consumer safety along with being a mark of sustainable production.
