Halishte is an unique hand-made woolen carpet (rug) which is made from wool of live sheep. Individual hairs are woven into the fabric thats why this special product has better thermal insulating properties than sheep skins. Halishte has a long tradition in the Balkan Mts. and in the past was considered as a symbol of wealth. It takes long time to manufacture this poduct.
Halishte are now used in modern flats, cottages and we would like to introduce them to a re-enactment society. I can imagine this woolen rug in a tent of a Celtic Chieftain, Roman Centurion as well as a Viking Jarl or a Medieval nobleman.
Care: washing in hands - max. 25 °C.
