The shepherd’s pillow was inspired by the sheep fleece that the shepherds of the Pyrenees carried with their shepherd's blanket when they went out to graze the flock.
The pillowcase is made of linen fabric and stuffed with Andorran sheep wool.
From the Mediterranean to the Cantabrian Sea there stretches the long backbone of the Pyrenees. This geographical complex has for centuries had its own cultural, agricultural and spiritual identity. Andorra, in spite of the small territory it covers, forms part of this extensive geography and its rich heritage.
The project VITAL has its origin in this little country’s determination not to lose its identity. Our first activity has consisted in saving the coats of the sheep from being destroyed, when the animals are sheared each spring.
The people who inhabit the mountain have always used this natural fiber to dress themselves, for protection against the cold, and to make indispensable material for a good mattress.
Now, with this same natural fiber, VITAL has created the shepherd’s pillow. We hope that this new product we offer, made with the wool of our sheep, will make an attractive contribution to this legacy, which we received with such delight; in this same spirit of delight, we pass on this simple, high-quality pillow inspired by the rich pastoral culture of our land and, likewise, of the whole Pyrenees.
