Windward Premium Grade rugs are made from quality New Zealand and Australian lambskins ~ less than one in 10 skins processed is considered good enough to wear the Windward brand name.
Windward processed its first skin in 1966. Since then, the company has constantly improved the processes used to convert one of nature's most versatile resources into a range of diverse and original lambskin creations, using totally organic molecules to tan its products. Each skin is processed through multiple stages before it is finally ready for sale. The result is a supple, full leather backing and a soft wool which is extremely stable to temperature and light.
Windward sheepskin rugs are slightly whiter than the creamy-white ecowool rugs, but are not as pure white as Bowron rugs.
