Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world and is heavily populated with boats and yachts, which is a testament to the Sydney Lifestyle. On Boxing Day, Sydney’s harbour becomes worldwide news with the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. The lead-up to this highly anticipated race brings people from around the globe to witness the start, and let me tell you, many of these ‘yachties’ go to great lengths to look stylish.
Apart from the Sydney to Habour Yacht Race, The Sydney Boat Show has hosted over 3 million people since its inception in 1968. We are obviously a city of keen sailors and boaties.
I have sailed in a couple of Regattas and was once a crewmember for a few years on “Shazam” for Twilight Sailing, so I have an affinity with the Sydney sailing culture. Sailing has its own style and for many who love to set sail on the harbour (or beyond) looking good is important to them. I’m pleased to be able to offer readers of Sydney Chic 15% discount from a new range of apparel and accessories that are 100% Australian made. For those who want top quality, Australian made clothing and accessories let me introduce you to “Sydney Harbour Yacht Club” range; an Australian made lifestyle brand.
The brand has some pretty awesome values:
High quality High-quality, hand-crafted goods that are made to last. Their motto is ‘buy quality and buy fewer’.
Garments are Australian made by an Australian owned company producing high quality products, placing the customer at the centre of the business.
Sustainability Buying quality means buying fewer, buying fewer saves resources, money and time and reduces the impact on the environment. Sydney Harbour Yacht Club products are locally sourced and ethically produced with Australian made certification.
Fair treatment of workers Australia has the fourth highest wages in the world, and some of the highest standards of workplace health and safety. This is in stark contrast to many overseas nations, which have much lower wages and safety standards than Australia.
Supporting Australians Purchasing Australian made products directly supports Australian families by creating jobs that benefits our economy.
Research published by the Industry Capability Network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, the following effects flow through the economy:
$333,900 worth of tax revenue generated
$985,000 worth of value-added generated
$95,000 worth of welfare benefits saved
10 full-time jobs created
Are you aware that 92 percent of clothes sold in Australia are imported? I don’t know about you, but if I can buy Australian-made over foreign imports I will, even if it costs more. Our Australian iconic brands such as Mambo, Hot Tuna, Rip Curl and R.M. Williams that were once made in Australia are now manufactured in Asia.
