In mid-August, the warm and dry days are used to harvest this year’s hay from the alpine meadow. The meadow, which can only be mowed by hand once a year, is located at 1.700m above sea level near the Wildspitze, the highest mountain in Tyrol and can only be reached on foot.
In elaborate manual work with scythe and rake the raw material for the deck WILDSPITZE is obtained, which needs two days of fine weather and a lot of sunshine to dry well.
In the valley, the hay is cleaned and cut before being pressed in several layers and according to a precise recipe, in compliance with strict quality guidelines, to produce the final product.
Attached to sauna walls or simply for decoration purposes – there are no limits to the possible applications.
SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE pur (alpine hay)
On the slopes of the Wildspitze, the highest mountain in Tyrol, the warm and dry days are used to harvest the alpine hay – the raw material for our SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE.
Mowing is done without the use of machines, as many areas can still only be reached on foot. In the valley, the hay is cleaned and cut before being pressed in several layers and according to a precise recipe to form the final product.
SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® ALMWIESN
Alpine hay sprinkled with different flowers
Fragrant alpine hay supplemented with petals of arnica, cornflower, erica, rose and daisies with stalks.
All these wonderful natural materials were captured in the colorful SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE ALMWIESN.
SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE Edelweiss
Alpine hay sprinkled with Edelweiss-flowers
Edelweiss – the well-known symbol of courage, loyalty and community – is strictly protected in its natural habitat in the Alps. That is why it is now cultivated in nurseries and adorns our enchanting SAUNABOARD WILDSPITZE.
Together they create a magnificent work of art that appeals to all the senses.
SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE MARGARITTA
Alpine hay sprinkled with marguerites
The hand-steepest Almheu of the Tiroler mountain meadows is dried in the sun and turned several times. The variety of herbs and grasses is responsible for the delicate scent.
The hand-applied daisy blossoms (approx. 4 pcs/m²) refine our SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE MARGARITTA.
SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® SKELETTBLATTLA (skeleton leaves)
These distinctive skeletonized leaves require just as much patience and careful craftsmanship during their production.
The surfaces between the veins and stems are first dissolved in a water bath. Then the sun-dried leaves are arranged one by one and with a defined overlap. The result evokes associations with sensitive plant fossils that were protected for thousands of years in the imperishable stone.
THE SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE MORGENTAU paired with the SALZKAMMERGUTEICHE ALTAUSSEE
Like morning dew on an alpine meadow, our SAUNABOARD ORGANOID® WILDSPITZE MORGENTAU begins to glitter magically depending on the incidence of light.
The combination of natural raw materials with Swarovski® Upcycle Zirconia stones will be the sparkling highlight in your sauna cabin.
