Using the wool of sheep that live 1,000 metres above sea level helps to preserve the traditions of the Pyrenees.
The backbone of the Pyrenees stretches out from the Mediterranean all the way to the Cantabrian Sea. For centuries, this geographical area has had its own cultural, agricultural and spiritual identity. Despite its small size, Andorra is a huge part of this extensive geographical entity and its rich heritage.
The Vital project was born with a view to promoting the identity of this small country. Its first initiative has been to save sheep’s fleeces from destruction when the animals are sheared every spring.
Mountain people have always used this natural fibre as clothing to protect from the cold and as a raw material perfect for a comfortable bed.
Here at Vital, we have created a ‘shepherd’s cushion’ with natural wool fibres from Andorran sheep. With this simple product, we hope to promote and preserve the spirit of Andorra’s farming culture, as well as that of the Pyrenees as a whole.
This cushion is available at various tourist offices all over the country, including in Andorra la Vella and Sant Julià de Lòria.
