We are very pleased to announce that Corgi is now an official supporter of The Campaign for Wool – a global project championed by HRH The Prince of Wales to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural, renewable benefits offered by wool.
Launched by HRH The Prince back in 2010, The Campaign for Wool is a multi-national partnership that works across industries to raise the profile of wool as the natural sustainable fibre for fashion and interiors. It involves leading figures from the fashion industry, interior design, wool carpet manufacturers as well as the world of insulation and building.
Over 70 fashion brands, leading department stores and around 1,000 carpet independents have been involved in promotions and events across the UK and internationally and Corgi is honoured to be joining the team of supporters.
Of course, it was HRH The Prince of Wales that awarded us our Royal Warrant back in 1989 and we are very pleased to be able to offer our support to a cause that is so close to his heart.
Using natural, renewable fibres such as wool is an important part of looking after our environment and this is central to the way we work here at Corgi. The demand from consumers worldwide for quality knitted products fits neatly with the need to use renewable natural resources such as wool, rather than deplete finite ones. It also provides essential employment and capital for both third world and developed economies.
As a specialist luxury hosiery and knitwear manufacturer, we strive to source the very best quality pure wool, with the softest and most luxurious handle for use in our range of pure wool and cotton & wool blend socks as well as our knitwear.
