Wandil was founded in 2003 and resides in the Old Waterworks on the
Ilm near the small village of Oettern in Thuringia.
In the 90s Peter Böhlefeld, a dedicated sculptor training to become a
teacher, was looking for a material that would match his creative
intentions. His search took him down unconventional routes and he
began to consider peat fibre. His meeting with the natural material
had consequences: He followed Dr Rudolf Steiner’s indications that
peat could protect the human being from the influences of technology
and found further information in Henri Smith’s peat fibre research
inspired by Dr Rudolf Steiner’s suggestions. Peter Böhlefeld
discovered the virtuous effect peat fibre can have on the human
wellbeing once it has undergone a conversion process which
extrapolates the forces from within the peat. Together with Bettina
Rinderknecht he developed the Wandil-process that forms the basis of
their joined venture today. With their work they hope to help protect
human beings in at least some situations from the ever present
electromagnetic processes to which they are exposed.
Wandil would like to thank the many employees, supporters, lenders and
not least the customers for their part in this successful business.
