As the global authority on wool, The Woolmark Company promotes Australian wool’s position as the ultimate natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre and represents pioneering excellence and innovation from farm through to fashion. Chosen by Camera della Moda and Eco-Age, The Woolmark Company’s beliefs align perfectly to that of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, celebrating the eco-sustainable choices and results made by the fashion industry.
