The Brands Championing The Stylish Promise Of Wool's Function & Form
The synergy between interiors and fashion is stronger than ever, and when it comes to our local wool industry, two brands are championing the stylish promise of its function and form
Heritage meets modernity when we take rising fashion label Wynn Hamlyn - known for its premium, made in New Zealand knitwear - to the factory floor of one of New Zealand’s most iconic companies and a leader in its field, Cavalier Bremworth in South Auckland. With a 50-year heritage in wool flooring, the brand is synonymous with quality, style and function, the legacy of its founders Tony Timpson and Grant Biel continuing to inspire a new generation of styleleaders across the world of interiors, fashion and beyond. Made in New Zealand, Cavalier Bremworth has revolutionised the flooring industry with its innovation and cutting edge offering.
