Tas Textiles’ Envirowoollys Take a Holiday.
In a recent and exciting announcement, a selection of Envirowoolly critters have found new homes in some of the most prestigious hotels in Tasmania. The Federal Group has adopted some of the Envirowoolly characters and placed them in the rooms of some of their high-end properties for visitors to purchase and take home with them after their stay.
Tas Textiles Executive Manager, Linda Goran-Atkin, said that the Envirowoolly range is very popular with visitors to Tasmania, with many finding new homes across Australia and around the globe.
“The Envirowoolly Tasmanian Devil is particularly popular with visitors to our National Parks. The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service have purchased hundreds of our little Devils along with many of his friends,” Linda said.
“This new opportunity with the Federal Group will mean even more visitors will get to meet our wonderful range of Envirowoolly birds and animals, which will bring a lot of joy to their lives and many memories of their time in Tasmania.
“The Envirowoolly range is made by people who care at Tas Textiles in Hobart from quality materials and recycled filling. They are safe for children and adults, easy to carry, and very comforting. There is a wide range of Envirowoolly characters to collect, and more on the way. So, no matter which one pick you to take him or her home, you can always add an Envirowoolly friend to your collection later,” Linda said.
