Proudly supporting Australian made products & ethical manufacturing

Posted on January 15, 2016 by Michelle Ryan

At Little Wing we estimate that about 65% of our products are Australian made.

 Our Australian made labels include:

Sacha Drake
Maiocchi
Rebecca Ruby
Vigorella
Wyse Bodywear
Very Very
Leina Broughton
Honeybee Goods
Formosa

 

There are great reasons to support Australian manufacturing:

  • Research published by the Industry Capability Network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, there are significant flow on effects through the economy (www.icn.org.au)
  • There is a direct correlation between consumer purchasing behaviour and employment, local economic development and prosperity. When you buy Australian-made and grown products, you can be sure you are keeping your family members and friends employed
  • Australian products and produce have been manufactured or grown locally to meet our high Australian standards. That means you can have confidence in the quality and know that whatever you are buying hasn't travelled around the world before it reaches your home.

We also have a number of labels that while not Australian made, are ethically produced and support our fellow world citizens.

Elk Accessories is one such label. 

Elk aims to “provide support for the human side of (the) business” and has aligned themselves with ethically operated businesses as well as providing financial support to communities in the Philippines and India. As a UNICEF Platinum Sponsor, Elk is leading the way as an ethical small business, having donated $135,000 to some of the worlds’ poorest children during the last four years.

Blue Turtles is another company that has high ethical standards. Part of their mission is to focus on the human beings that comprise their production, market and team, to encourage an appreciation for quality and artisanship over economy in the marketplace and to minimize their impact on and maximize their positive contribution to the environment.
