Reindeer Moss Sustainably Picked
Reindeer Moss is a carpet-forming lichen growing freely and abundantly in boreal and arctic regions around the circumpolar north. It is found primarily in areas of alpine tundra and is extremely cold-hardy.
The lichen has been used by Scandinavians in a wide variety of areas, including as a filling material in wooden huts, as an ingredient in soups and desserts, and in Christmas decoration. It is also used in the creation of dyes, in the manufacture of litmus paper, and is the primary lichen used for miniature trees in architecture and railway modelling.
In 2014, the founders of Nordgröna, then students at Lund University in Sweden, discovered the lichen’s outstanding ability to absorb sound. This led to a creation of a new product combining modern demands with a traditional material. Sound absorbers made from natural Reindeer Moss are now used in office and public spaces worldwide.
