Introducing the BAS Fibre Logo

20 July 2015

After long discussions and many hours of hard work from both the Board and the BAS Fibre Committee, the British Alpaca Society is pleased to bring you the BAS Fibre Logo.

Terms of use will be sent to qualifying members for completion. Once the form has been signed and returned to the BAS, the logos will be forwarded to you for use on your products. The BAS hopes that you will be able to proudly display, advertise and sell your products displaying the logo relevant to your goods clearly highlighting superior features. The Fibre Marques maybe used on any/ all products created from your raw fibre including yarns, textiles, cloth, furnishings, so long as all the criteria below are met (excluding finishings/accessories such as buttons, zips etc.) It is your responsibility to ensure the provenance and purity of the goods you display the fibre marque on. As with the BAS logo, you may use either of the fibre marques in either orientation to promote/advertise your products. It is hoped that your products created from British alpaca will stand out to prospective purchasers and will enhance your goods and herd.
