WOOL (Wool as Outstanding Opportunity for Leverage), Interreg Adrion Project

We are pleased to announce that Nativa is partnering with 9 other partners from Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro and Greece on WOOL project.

Wool – when ethically made – this recyclable, renewable, biodegradable, natural material presents great potential that has now become an important market niche for sustainable providers.

WOOL project is funded by the INTERREG VB Adriatic-Ionian ADRION Program 2014-2020 and led by the Upper Adriatic Technology Park SCPA.

Over the next 2 years, we will be presenting new sustainable and seasonally adjusted tourist experiences and artisanal products made from wool, connected to the pastoral heritage and traditions, but also interpreted in an innovative way.
