Beyond the Bale : June 2019
Leading wool bedding brand MiniJumbuk has teamed up with a drought-affected NSW farmer to create a limited edition wool quilt to raise funds to support Australian drought relief efforts. The limited edition Farmer’s Heart Wool Quilt, being sold in partnership with department store David Jones, is one of 1,000 being made. $50 from the sale of each quilt will be donated by MiniJumbuk and David Jones directly to Rural Aid to help Aussie farmers get back on their feet. The quilt has been made by Woolmark licensee MiniJumbuk using Poll Dorset wool from one farm, Roger Wilkinson’s Camborn Station at Wentworth in NSW, making the wool uniquely traceable to a single source. Roger, the fourth generation of his family to produce wool at the 38,000 hectare Camborn Station, is directly experiencing the impact of the severe drought. “It’s hard to comprehend the full effects until you witness the drought’s impact first-hand,” Roger said. “Businesses are really struggling so I’m very proud that my family is supporting other Australian communities and Rural Aid with this project. I think it’s tremendous how MiniJumbuk and David Jones are giving back to the Rural Aid program.” The 1,000 quilts (across single, double, queen, king and super king sizes) were hand-crafted and finished at MiniJumbuk’s rural headquarters in Naracoorte, South Australia. “It’s great to be involved in a project where we can work with the source of the product that MINIJUMBUK’S DROUGHT RELIEF FUNDRAISER Drought conditions on Roger Wilkinson’s Camborn Station at Wentworth in NSW. makes our premium wool bedding, we can partner with one of the premium department stores in Australia, and we can do something really meaningful to give back to the communities that are struggling in the drought,” said MiniJumbuk Managing Director, Darren Turner. “I think it’s a real challenge for the average Australian to understand the impact of drought, particularly when they live so far away from the communities that are struggling through it. So we're hoping with this program to remind people that conditions are tough at the moment out in the bush.” Not only is the quilt helping raise vital funds, the premium Poll Dorset wool from Camborn Station has rated exceptionally highly in terms of resilience, with extra fill power for lasting loft and warmth in the quilt. A great all-rounder, MiniJumbuk's Farmer's Heart Wool Quilt is available exclusively from $439.95 in select David Jones stores nationwide, MiniJumbuk retail outlets in South Australia and online.
