The Challenge2015 International Design & Make Challenge
The 2015 International Design and Make Challenge gave designers the opportunity to work with 100% Cambrian Mountain wool from the heart of Wales. The common factor: a passion for design, sustainability and quality. Our aim: to demonstrate the beauty and versatility of our wool.
The opportunity was for emerging or established textile designer-makers to work with their choice of 1kg of wool tops; 1kg yarn; or up to 3 meters of fabric in plain woven structure, or a mixture of the three to create a unique textile work – whether functional or purely decorative – to help us show the versatility and beauty of Cambrian Mountains Wool.
