...i am very excited to be taking part in a new and wonderful project along with other designer/makers
the project is a collaboration between two organic Welsh companies
Funding has also been provided by Better Organic business links Wales.
the aims are; (to quote Llynfi Textiles)
*to raise the profile and explore the potential of organic wool
*to establish a broad community of interest that spans wool producers, designers, makers and the general public
*to showcase the potential for organic wool and the quality, innovation and commitment to sustainability of designer/makers in the UK
all sounds really fantastic to me and shows a forward thinking approach to how wool can be promoted.
wool is no longer something that your granny knitted....
with new organic fabrics and yarns...wool now has a funky modern twist
any project that helps promote this has my whole hearted support.
all designer/makers items for the Organic Wool Project will be showcased at WonderWool Wales
27-28th April 2013
here are a couple of my mood boards for the project...that's the organic fabric I will be using...gorgeous isn't it?
