Bicester Village launches the British Wool Collective showcasing Brintons carpets
5th October 2016
In association with the Campaign for Wool and the British Fashion Council, Bicester Village will be celebrating all things woolly with a quintessentially British Boutique and hub featuring Brintons' Timorous Beasties carpet.
Visitors will experience the collection first-hand with Platinum Grain Du Bois taking centre stage in the station foyer, whilst the dramatic Ruskin Butterfly will be in the hub.
Brintons have always worked closely with the world of fashion. In 1993 Brintons teamed up with Vivienne Westwood to create a dress made entirely of the Finepoint and Bell Twist carpet ranges and 10 years later, in 2003, Brintons launched its 'most luxurious carpets in the world campaign', working with renowned shoe designer Manolo Blahnik featuring Bell Twist.
Further collaborations with iconic design brands such as Laura Ashley and Timorous Beasties have resulted in collections with timeless elegance and outstanding beauty, all entirely exclusive to Brintons.
Design is at the heart of everything we produce and it is the key ingredient to our continued success within the carpet and design industry.
Andrew Wilcock, Group Marketing Manager, Brintons comments "As one of the largest consumers of British Wool, we have long been champions of Campaign for Wool and were delighted to have been asked by Bicester to showcase some of our favourite designs as part of their British Wool Collective. Spanning across our commercial and residential collections, the Quickweave and Timorous Beasties collections demonstrate how versatile this natural material is."
Nicholas Coleridge, Chairman, Campaign for Wool and President of Conde Nast International said "We are so delighted that Bicester Village is getting behind His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales's Campaign for Wool. The ecological of Bicester Village are well known, and it feels absolutely appropriate that they are backing the movement for wool, with all its messages of sustainability and fashionability."
