Description

Haven’t heard of us? Let me break it down for you.
 
We’ve been a part of the iconic Australian design landscape for over 90 years. Only a few short years after Australian’s became happy little Vegemites, families were spreading their toast in kitchens and on tables made by us. 
 
Now you’ll see our products featured on The Design Files, in The Local Project videos and winning praise on ‘The Block’. We’ve come a long way over the past 90 years – and have an even brighter journey ahead of us.
