WHAT IS BLAEK STORE'S DEFINITION OF 'AUSTRALIAN-MADE'?
BLAEK Store is based on Guringai land in Sydney, Australia and, wherever possible, we always love to support up and coming labels made locally. The Australian fashion industry is naturally inspired by the outdoors, our laid back culture and the versatility needed to go from beach to bar, as well as a natural respect for the environment.
- The Aussie state of Tasmania has the world's cleanest air.
- Australia was the second country in the world to grant women the right to vote; this occurred in 1894.
- Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke once held the Guiness World Record for the fastest beer sculling, downing 2.5 pints of beer in 11 seconds.
HOW CAN YOU SHOP AUSTRALIAN MADE?
Shopping Australian made clothing, homewares and beauty products is not about being patriotic - it's about supporting your local community. The people behind these brands support their local eats, drinks and do's and they rely on that support being reciprocated. We have incredible land that produces such wonderful native plants and creatures and we need to do our best to shop locally to ensure the nurturing of all of our producers.
At BLAEK Store, we acknowledge and pay our respects to the Guringai people who are the traditional owners of the area in which we do business. The Guringai people were the original sustainable, ethical and organic experts. They ate, dressed, lived and farmed in a way that allowed for rejuvenation and synergy, something that we strive for at BLAEK Store.
