We saw an interesting post on Facebook last weekend.
In essence, the post was "Who owns Kelly & Windsor?" ... "the web site looks like its Chinese owned with the Chinese flag on the Home Page"
Two very relevant points which I am very happy to respond to.
Firstly, we are a 100% Australian owned and operated business and very proud of it too. We are now updating our web site to highlight this and to advise who exactly owns the company to be 100% clear and transparent. When these additions are complete I will set up a link to the relevant pages.
Kelly & Windsor is also a proud licence holder of the Australia Made Campaign and we extensively use the "Australian made and Owned" logo on our packaging and promotional materials. The use of the Australia Made logo is strictly controlled and infringement is subject to significant legal penalties for false or misleading use.
In regards the Chinese flag on the web site, it is simply a link to a section of our web site which has been translated into simplified Chinese. There are approximately 650,000 people of Chinese origin who live in Australia who are either citizens, permanent residents or visitors. We sell our bedding products to all Australian residents and tourists so we have translated sections of our web site to promote our product ranges to this market segment to make it easier for Chinese speaking customers to purchase our products.
I hope the above provides a clear reply to the Facebook post.

Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, we have maintained full manufacturing and shipping operations since the initial out break. We are actually struggling to met demand for our luxurious Australian Made bedding collections.
We have instigated strict Covid Safe Policies and Practices and are prepared to offer full support to staff who may be effected in these difficult times.
We were on TVSN with our Alpaca Gold 400 winter quilts and pillows with two shows in June which were both sold out.
These shows were the first time featuring our finest pure Alpaca Gold quilts and despite not being able to be in the studio in person, the shows were a great success with repeat orders required to fill customer back orders.
