93% of Aussie's prefer to buy Australian made products

Buy Australian made

Since early March 2020 when the covid pandemic took hold, we have noticed a significant  increase in our Australian Made alpaca bedding collections from both our "bricks and mortar" retailers and through our multiple on line sales channels.

Most Australian on line retailers have experienced huge increases in their sales due to the various restrictions required by covid, with many people working from home, putting up with travel restrictions and many retail stores actually being closed for various periods during lock downs.

Its now a year later and  I read today in the Smart Business Connection, an article about Australian Made products -

"Small and family businesses are benefiting from a significant boost in consumer sentitment (in the covid pandemic) with new research revealing 93% of Aussie's prefer to buy products made in Australia" 

Hey, that's so true, if it's made in Australia and it is a quality product, why wouldn't you buy it? Support every Australian small business, especially now.

And another quote -

"Roy Morgan research released by the Australian Made Campaign, estimates if every household spent an extra $10 per week on Australian made products, an additional $5 billion would be generated in our economy over the year, creating 11,000 new jobs"

Wow, $10 per week per household - that's peanuts, but the economic benefit and job boost is huge. What would happen with an extra $50? Buy Aussie!

First launched in 2006, our alpaca underblankets have been very popular but unfortunately in 2015 we encountered some technical manufacturing problems that we just couldn't resolve and we reluctantly had to discontinue their production.

Today we are advising that they are coming back in winter 2021.
