The Woolmark Company opens Resource Centre in Hong Kong
today May 5, 2016
The Woolmark Company has launched a global hub in Hong Kong to present new opportunities for the local textile industry.
The Wool Resource Centre, designed by Hasell Studio, is a space that provides market intelligence, technical innovations and sourcing information for woolgrowers, spinners, knitters, retailers, designers, students and garment makers who are interested in working with Australian Merino wool.
Seminars and training workshops will be hosted in the space, which also features a library and a showroom.
“The Wool Resource Centre in Hong Kong is a multi-functional space dedicated to product and process innovation to be used by all our partners throughout the supply chain,” said the company's Managing Director Stuart McCullough.
“Woolgrowers can use the centre for industry presentations; supply chain partners can showcase their product or host a launch; and designers can find inspiration and touch and feel the latest and greatest in wool.”
The Woolmark Company selected Hong Kong for its long history of sourcing Australian wool, its significant textiles and garments exports and the size of its textile industry. Further, many global brands travel to Hong Kong to source textiles and the city is a manufacturing hub for spinners and knitters.
