Wool, women and Wickstead
Inspired by nature and strong women of the world, Emilia Wickstead’s latest collection offers a modern wardrobe crafted from Australian Merino wool.
There is no fabric more integral to the tailoring industry than wool. As one of the oldest materials known to mankind, the inherent natural properties of wool have long been used to craft the world's best suits. Through technical innovation and manufacturing developments, it remains a go-to tailoring fabric, no matter the season or style.
New World Wool
As new Chinese designers emerge and consumer tastes mature, China’s relationship with Australian Merino wool has grown to encompass luxury, designer and mainstream retail and high-tech processing facilities. We celebrate 50 years of a powerful cross-cultural relationship spanning trade, economy and creativity by looking to the future of Chinese design.
