What is natural?

   All fibres which come from natural sources (animals, plants, etc.) and do not require fibre formation or reformation are classed as natural fibres.

Natural felted wool cat house – fibres from the nature!

Throughout the history of mankind, wool shorn from domesticated animals has traditionally been a vital resource to nearly every culture that lives in a temperate or colder climate. The twentieth century, however, brought the advent of artificial fibers made through complex industrial processes that displaced many of the traditional uses of wool. This came with high price, as the short term benefits of this industrialization hid the negative environmental impact of all stages of the manufacturing process as well as damage to the health and safety of everyone working and living near the mills. Fortunately, a growing awareness of the ecological impact of industrialization has led people to reassess the traditional value of this ancient resource. When using felted wool to produce cat house, the ecological impact is greatly diminished.

Natural wool, in all its many variations, can be made into apparel that is healthy, economical and environmentally conscious while still being fashion forward. Taking fashion to the next level is good idea when you’re looking to wear healthy clothing and accessories. Not only will the cat house look great in your house, but it will be much healthier for your cat to live in, cat house is products that are not consuming animals. Handmade, felted products that are made from high quality wool are more than just a tip of the cap to healthy living. Those who want to live a healthier lifestyle can begin, perhaps, with their diet and exercise and extend that to the clothing that they wear.
When it comes to pure fashion, these sorts of products look great with just about anything.
A great example of this is felted wool cat house – while most modern cat houses are made from nylon, polyester and leather processed with harsh chemicals, handmade felted wool cat house are created almost entirely out of natural materials, the only chemicals used for the felt generally limited to soap and water. While all cat houses use out eventually, the artificial materials in industrially made cat house live on much longer than themselves, eventually taking up space as solid waste. Felted wool cat house, in comparison, are mostly made of materials that in time will naturally rejoin our biosphere.

Fashion is just a reflection of who we are and the choices we make, and felted wool cat house will not only look great but let you choose to make a more natural and healthy world in the process. They may look fabulous and have a low impact on the environment, but are also very comfortable for cat – the handmade felt is soft and supple, able to breathe while still staying warm. While different styles and designs might be consistent within their individual product lines, each handmade cat house is unique since they were all born with the personal attention of the artisan who made them.

An easy strategy in making your life a healthy, natural and ecologically sound one is to make wise choices in what you purchase and use every day. Thinking about the impact our everyday choices can have on our health and environment can be a good start, and choosing felted wool shoes can be a part of that.

Don’t just purchase something new to wear because it looks good. Purchase it because it’s all-natural, is ecofriendly, and allows you to make a contribution to the betterment of the environment and the world around us.

in the beginning

Officially opening in 2011, we named the company Kivikis, and the ideas began to run from there.  The further we looked into the business aspects and opportunities, the more we found a fresh market for such hand crafted wool felted items in the EU and the US, where there were practically none available. This new market made it possible for our business to expand quickly and gain the notoriety that it has today.
Kivikis Today:
We have become a flourishing business since our humble beginnings as a small business out of the founders’ home, with nothing more than a great idea, and wonderful product. It quickly filled their bedroom, and spilled into the rest of their house, a great sign that their idea was a huge success. Since then, we have expanded into a large felting house with many experienced crafts people that create our beautiful felted cat houses.
What Sets Us Apart?
We supply the EU and the US with 100% eco-friendly items.  Kivikis began making felted items with luxury natural sheep’s wool from Australia, and continue with that same quality today in our larger operation.  Using the softest ecological merino wool, silk used for trimming, wool fabric and linen fibers sets our company apart from any other available in the EU and the US.
Where You Can Find Us:
Our felted creations have been included in numerous magazines, as a testament to our quality.  We have expanded in such a manner, that you can become a fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, subscribe to our blog, and even find us on YouTube to stay in touch with all of the new things we have going on here at Kivikis!
