Cape Wools, the official representative body of the South African wool industry and organiser of Wool Week South Africa, has said that the achievements and outcomes of Wool Week Cape Town 2015, which took place earlier this month in Cape Town, were encouraging.

“We believe that this year’s event was in line with Wool Week events which have taken place in major cities such as London, Oslo and Madrid since 2010” said Louis De Beer, Cape Wools CEO.

“The iconic setting of the V&A Waterfront this year provided an enchanted backdrop for a highly interactive, multi-faceted, memorable and spirited South African Wool Week, where we showcased the source of South African wool and celebrated the versatility, luxuriousness, and ecologically-friendly credentials of South African wool,” he said.

The event showcased contemporary ideas, new creations and the infinite possibilities of wool for home decoration, fashion, arts, crafts and architecture.

Wool Week is one of several initiatives for the Campaign for Wool, a global event founded by the Prince of Wales.

De Beer said events such as educational workshops, indoor exhibitions, and outdoor wool activations ensured that visitors to the V&A Waterfront were spoilt for choice.

The feedback from retailers, designers and exhibitors including the wool industry participants was positive, he said. (SH)
