|Coat of arms of the Woolmen.|
But to return to Drapers and Woolmen. In traditional trade terms we have a considerable overlap with the Woolmen although the Draper focus was more directed towards the retail part of the industry. For more information go to http://www.woolmen.com/
Simon Bailey, the current Master, and the rest of the Company made us both welcome. Usefully we had the opportunity to discuss the Wool Project that was launched Prince of Wales a year ago. This aims to publicise the excellence of the British wool industry at a time of intense international competition. For more information go to http://www.britishwool.org.uk/ and look for the clickdown Campaign for Wool to find out what is going on. Also I cannot resist asking you to look at the Woolipedia site www.woolipedia.com/
We are at present planning a dinner in April to amongst other clothing industry issues to publicise the work of the Wool Project and we look forward to working with members of the Woolmen court and livery who are already playing a part in this.
