OneWool – The Nominations PART2
As part of the Wool Week 2013 celebrations, the Campaign for Wool launched a special interiors promotion to encourage manufacturers, retailers, designers and consumers to nominate their favourite wool product of choice to become a part of #OneWool, a digital promotion of wool interiors.
OneWool is a unique promotion designed to build the profile of great interior wool products and their unique story. Rugs, carpets, fabrics, furnishings and pieces of art have been nominated so far.
The Campaign asked leading brands to nominate their very best wool product.
Here are some of the nominations and what the brands said about them:
“Thought you may find this matching chair and suit combination amusing. At Dashing Tweeds we are constantly expanding the boundaries of woollen weaves. We experiment with new weave structures and colours as well as work on incorporating technology into our wool designs. A sense of humour is also an important part of our work as we bring back joy to dressing for men. This is one of a set of personal chairs in which I can become almost invisible if I choose a matching suit.” Guy Hills

‘It is a brand new range called La Dolce Vita. It is 80/20 wool/nylon blend that uses some of the very best yarns available. The carpet is made using an overtuft process, which sees the velvet ground colour made first. The design is then punched through the back, looped, then sheared producing a smooth, yet textured finish. This way of making a wool pattern carpet is unique to Adam Carpets within the UK.
The classical scroll design used on La Dolce Vita is timeless and will bring a touch of class to any room.’
