At Brora, we have always been avid supporters of The Campaign for Wool and their mission to raise awareness about the unique, natural, and biodegradable benefits offered by the fibre.

To mark the Campaign for Wool’s annual Wool Week, we have worked with final year university students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and brought the winning student’s design to life in a limited-edition Campaign for Wool jumper.

“Ever since we launched Brora in 1993, we’ve been a huge supporter of wool and as ever we are really pleased to support the Campaign for Wool by collaborating with young up-and-coming British design talent.”

VICTORIA STAPLETON

FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

“I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to create a design for Brora. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy working on this project, but I learnt a lot from it too, gaining valuable experience and confidence as a designer.”

This year, students were tasked with designing a jumper inspired by the stunning Scottish town of Elgin and its wonderful surrounding landscape. Home to our historic mill, Elgin is just one of many areas in Scotland that is close to Brora’s heart.

Celebrating the beauty in the passing of time, Imogen’s winning entry was inspired by the areas broken patterns and interrupted design. Beautifully linking with our own ethos to create styles that will withstand the test of time, through timeless designs and using only the very finest fibres.

“Imogen approached the project brief with a sensitivity and thoughtfulness that carries through all aspects of her submission. She has understood the softness and subtlety of the landscape that formed the core inspiration and captured this through a range of drawing processes that in turn informed her approach to sampling. The results are refined and paired back capturing the essence of Lossie, Elgin and the surrounding area with a gentle sense of local narrative.”

Encouraging collaboration between an international community of woolgrowers, major fashion designers, retailers, manufacturers, artisans and interior designers, the Campaign has been instrumental in educating consumers about the versatility of wool and reconnecting them with its myriad uses; from luxurious fine merino knitwear and cloth through to beautiful hardwearing interior products to fire-retardant insulation for the home.
