WoJo, an innovative and award-winning upholstery fabric born out of a collaboration between Wellington company The Formary and Starbucks, is off to an exhibition at Somerset House London this week.

WoJo blends 70 percent wool with 30 percent recycled coffee sacks, and has been selected for the prestigious Wool House exhibition, which will be opened by Prince Charles this week.

Featuring rooms from top interior designers to art installations, it's bound to be a celebration of woolly textiles in all their glory. See more at
