Prince Charles Opens Gates of Highgrove to Campaign for Wool
April 13, 2012
His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales hosted tea for a Campaign for Wool meeting on March 30. A select group of representatives from the United States and the United Kingdom carpet manufacturers and interior designers were invited to meet the Prince at Highgrove, his private residence. The meeting aimed to promote the fabulous qualities of wool, specifically for use in the home.
Amias Taylor, New Zealand Representative for the Campaign for Wool, said, “Speaking to Prince Charles it is very clear that he is genuinely passionate about wool. Meeting an influential cross section of carpet manufacturers and interior designers was an invaluable opportunity to promote the great qualities of this fantastic natural fiber. A select group of influential companies from the United States and the United Kingdom were represented and it was brilliant to hear how they are committed to the use of wool in their products, as well as the sustainable story that wool represents. Our global industry is extremely fortunate and grateful for the support of the prince through the Campaign for Wool and the new found global enthusiasm and interest that has been generated in wool and wool products.”
Including the American Sheep Industry Association, on behalf of the United States, more than 35 countries have signed up to the Campaign for Wool, which continues to gather momentum across the world.
