Celebrate Wool Week with us!
6th October 2016
The Campaign for Wool will mark its seventh successful year with its annual ‘Wool Week’. Taking place from the 10th – 16th October, Wool Week celebrates everything woolly with a week of fun activities.
The ‘Wool BnB: Living with wool’, will launch, where everything from interiors to fashion will be made of wool. Everyone is invited to visit the BnB and learn more about wool as a fibre whilst taking part in workshop evenings, interactive talks, film screenings and styling sessions. Brintons have supplied some Abbeyglen and Abbotsford carpets as part of the display.
Bicester Village will be celebrating Wool Week too by launching a quintessentially British boutique - "British Wool Collective" - featuring a number of wool focussed fashion brands. You can experience the Timorous Beasties Platinum Grain Du Bois and Ruskin Butterfly carpets first-hand as they help decorate the outlet for the season. Brintons have always worked closely with the world of fashion and in 2003, Brintons launched its 'most luxurious carpets in the world campaign', working with renowned shoe designer Manolo Blahnik - see some of these shoes on display at the village too!
Nicholas Coleridge, Chairman, Campaign for Wool and President of Conde Nast International said "We are so delighted that Bicester Village is getting behind His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales's Campaign for Wool. The ecological of Bicester Village are well known, and it feels absolutely appropriate that they are backing the movement for wool, with all its messages of sustainability and fashionability."
As one of the largest consumers of British Wool, we have long been champions of Campaign for Wool and were delighted to have been asked to showcase some of our favourite designs as part of Wool Week's activities.
