‘Wool Lab Interiors’

For the first time, The Woolmark Company will present an inspirational trend guide to wool for interiors and design products. Wool is distinguished by a large range of positive qualities for design purposes: comfort, softness, elasticity, moisture absorption, flame resistance, sound and heat protection, naturalness and environmental friendliness.

The spectrum of interior applications is equally broad and stretches from bedding and bed linen, via floor coverings, carpets, decorative fabrics and furniture fabrics, to insulation and damping.

Ingrid Oomen from Woolmark International will talk about the ‘Wool Lab Interiors’, a trend presentation for research and promotion of wool, in a workshop at ‘Lecture Square’.

‘WellMade’

The Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) will make a contribution to the programme at ‘Lecture Square’, with the ‘WellMade’ seminar that will present specific solutions for eliminating grievances on the production side.
