Beyond the Bale : June 2016
6 OFF FARM Some of Australia’s biggest apparel retailers have joined boutique shops, designers and woolgrowers in celebrating Australia’s natural fibre for Wool Week 2016. With wool highlighted in retail outlets across Australia from 9-16 May, leading shopping centre Westfield joined the campaign as a major partner. Westfield Sydney, Miranda and Doncaster this year hosted in-centre activations promoting wool. There were also intimate Q&A sessions with Australia’s leading fashion designers, pop-up shops and exhibitions from leading textile artists. With Australia producing 90 per cent of the world's fine apparel wool, it's no surprise that some of the country's biggest labels and retailers are throwing their support behind the campaign. Wool Week forms a key part of the Campaign for Wool. Initiated in 2010 by HRH The Prince of Wales, the Campaign for Wool promotes wool as a natural, renewable and biodegradable alternative to synthetic fibres. “Wool Week aims to reconnect consumers with the versatility, luxury and natural benefits of wool, encouraging consumers to make more considered purchasing decisions,” explained AWI CEO Stuart McCullough. “At a retail level, we applaud all of the Australian brands who continue to support the campaign and champion the message to ‘Live naturally, Choose wool’. “Both Westfield and AWI work with the world's leading retail and luxury brands and so we were pleased to welcome Westfield as a major partner for this year’s celebrations, highlighting the use of Australian Merino wool both in Australian and international fashion.” MORE INFORMATION www.campaignforwool.org 6 OFF FARM Australian tailor M.J .

Retailers threw their support behind Australia’s annual Wool Week held last month to coincide with the start of the mid-winter retail season. The initiative was part of the Campaign for Wool, which aims to educate consumers about the natural benefits of wool and increase sales of wool product. CAMPAIGN FOR WOOL AUSTRALIA
