The Cotton Store

Sydney, Australia



The Cotton Store showcases selected companies and manufacturers whose products are based on the use of Australian Cotton. The store blends showcase retailing with an educational program to promote Australian cotton. Cotton Australia, an organization funded by 1500 Australian cotton growers, has invested $2 million in the store, which is expected to pay for itself through retail sales.

The two level store features a retail ground floor with Australian cotton brands such as Bonds, Sheridan and Tandou, as well as a range of Cotton Store branded product like cooking oils, candles and bath accessories. A video wall provides the link to the second floor, which serves as an information and education center, with interactive computer terminals and a theaterette.

The lime-washed timber floors, contrasting blond and dark timbers, and crisp lines of glass and metal promote the premium quality of the Australian product and help to create a retail environment of international stature.
