Cavalier Score Twice at Chelsea
The Campaign for Wool hosted its first Awards event celebrating the wool carpet and rug industry at Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea FC recently. The Awards attracted over one hundred entries as the flooring industry - the biggest user of British and New Zealand wool - competed for Awards in 15 categories.
Cavalier picked up two wins in categories within the retail and contract sectors, plus a couple of third places, making it the most successful tally at the event. Winners were presented with their Award at the Centenary Lounge, at a gathering that brought together manufacturers, designers and industry press to celebrate the story of wool flooring.
Introducing the Awards event, Nicholas Coleridge, Chairman of the Campaign for Wool, reminded the audience that the Campaign for Wool, which commenced in 2010 was the brainchild of HRH The Prince of Wales who wanted to ensure that wool with its natural sustainable benefits and the future of sheep farming was secure for the future. He acknowledged that the wool flooring sector was vital for British Wool and New Zealand.
