This year for the first time The Campaign for Wool has partnered with eight interiors brands. They include Fanuli, Orson & Blake, Designer Rugs, King Furniture, Workshopped, Great Dane and Supa Centa Moore Park.
The Campaign for Wool is designed to turn a spotlight on wool’s natural qualities and versatility. Each wool garment offers a range of natural benefits, comfort and softness. Wool is biodegradable; when it is disposed of in soil it will decompose over time and not end up as landfill.
UTS student designer Katherine Mavridis designed this stunning piece as part of the Student Showcase.
It’s easy to care for and breathable, and its natural structure allows it to regulate body temperature keeping you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot.
Wool being innovative, versatile and resilient is perfect for interiors and is becoming even more so through new technologies. Wool fabric will stand up to years of everyday wear and tear, making it the perfect choice for interior products including upholstery, carpets, floor coverings, curtains and cushions.
