Terra Lana’s ethos is reflected in our choice of name. Terra means earth, Lana means wool. We believe in the value of existing natural technology ~ what is designed for the environment (sheeps' wool) is good for the environment and for people. That’s why we are so passionate about using wool - an abundant natural New Zealand resource that is sustainably renewable and environmentally friendly.
Now more than ever is the time for innovation – to adopt more healthy and environmentally friendly practices and products to ensure we maintain a planet that is fit for future generations. That’s why Terra Lana is proud to not only minimise environmental impact in the manufacturing of our products, but also that our products serve others to do the same – through saving energy in healthier home environments.
A New Zealand product through and through ~ hard working sheep’s wool, innovation, natural, quality, effective, value, sensible, clean green, and of course - made right here. We're chuffed to have a brand that represents these quintessential Kiwi values.
Our large, purpose built manufacturing plant in Christchurch recycles wool to produce ceiling insulation, wall insulation, underfloor insulation, acoustic insulation and plumbing insulation (pipe lagging and hot water cylinder wraps), as well as a range of wool fibre based products such as MulchMat for weed matting, Grasstrike for grass seeding and soil retention, and our famous and very handy TufTruk furniture blankets.
Terra Lana Products Ltd was incorporated in 1999 to produce building insulation and eco-textiles from recycled wool.
Our building insulation products capitalise on the work done by the Wool Research Organisation of New Zealand (WRONZ, now AgResearch) in the 1990s. Terra Lana used WRONZ’s work to produce commercially salable products and in the year 2002 was the first New Zealand company to have wool based insulation products appraised by BRANZ (Building Research Association of New Zealand).
The company has grown rapidly with the burgeoning demand for environmentally friendly insulation and has outgrown several premises and now operates a purpose built factory at 55 Francella St, Bromley, Christchurch. The plant produces about 50,000 square metres of product per week, which is sold throughout New Zealand as well as exported to Japan and the United States.
Our sister company Mi Woollies also specialises in manufacturing, wholesale and retailing of highest quality New Zealand sheeps wool and sheepskin products, such as the famous Kiwi icon Ugg boots, footwear, sheepskin rugs, wool bedding and apparel.
