Wool Bunting

The Campaign for Wool has come together with Savile Row Bespoke Association, of which we are a Founding Member, and its Supporters to celebrate The Coronation of His Majesty The King.

This activity has culminated in one mile of wool bunting hanging in Savile Row and the local vicinity, all made by apprentices and tailors, as well as over 15 miles of wool fabric that will be used across the event procession itself on 6th May.

The bunting uses red, white and blue wool Melton fabric, which has historically been used in the iconic red military uniforms and is fixed with wool rope from Sustainable Rope – the joint winner of the Innovation in Wool Award 2022.


As Patron of The Campaign for Wool which was convened by His Majesty King Charles III when he was HRH The Prince of Wales in January 2010, wool is more important today, as climate change and plastic over consumption hits the headlines, requesting all of us to be more considerate in our choices.

Why Wool?

Wool is a wonder fibre! An overlooked planet-friendly fibre.

Wool is sustainable. It biodegrades naturally back into the land adding valuable nutrients and is totally devoid of micro-fibres, which have been proven to harm our oceans and waterways.

Choosing wool clothing and interior products over man-made fibres assists the biodiversity of the land on which life exists, and as an investment wool lasts longer and is healthier for the skin and the home/office environment.

The bunting produced in honour of The Coronation is re-usable so will be used for future events.

The Campaign for Wool Patron passionately endorses the natural benefits and use of wool, issues he raised on the introduction of mainstream plastic use in his student days over 50 years ago.

“It is abundantly clear to me that we need to make changes to the way we think about the production, use and the disposal of clothing and textiles if we are going to get anywhere near to meeting the United Nations climate change goals set for the industry. A major part of that change has to be moving from a linear system to a circular one, where textiles and clothing are produced sustainably, enjoy long use, and are made using natural materials, such as wool, which will biodegrade naturally and quickly at the end of their useful life.” His Majesty King Charles III, quoted when he was His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Patron Campaign for Wool.
