CULTURED Pearl Clothing has had a presence at the Ag-Grow Emerald Field Days for 15 years.
But this year two new faces were manning the tent.
Carmel North and Cara Trellope made the 623km journey from Dalby for the first time so Carmel’s mum Cheryl could stay home to look after her sick father.
“We love big events like this one because we meet so many lovely country people,” she said.
Despite the wet, cold and foggy weather, Carmel said they had a great weekend.
“We were very pleased with how it all went, we had lots of visitors and return customers,” she said.
The pair took thousands of items with them to the event for their customers.
“We are always working, it takes us about six months to
prepare for big shows like this one,” Carmel said.
“All of our stock is 100 per cent cotton and Australianmade. We make up to 30 shirts in a day. It’s a production line.”
Carmel said their sizes catered for many women.
“We know that everyone is
shaped and sized differently, not everyone is small and petite,” she said.
“We make real sizes for all women.
“Our polos, dress-shirts and kids dress-shirts were the most popular among our visitors.”
Carmel said they hoped to return for the 2019 event.
“When we got there we just thought ‘wow, this is huge’,” she said.
The three-day event had something for everyone with machinery, clothing, bull and horse sales and a kidzone for the kids.
