Globalisation is often frowned upon and said to destroy jobs and pull communities apart and uproot industries, peoples, environments. But from my perspective globalisation allows this bow tie to be on Parker Allen in Tokyo as he attends a Sumo wrestling match. A small piece of silk, sold to him on an internet site, dispatched to Japan and now firmly a part of his wardrobe. Parker wrote in yesterday to say that every time he wears one of our bow ties he receives many compliments. I love that. When I started, I think now it might be 9 years ago, I had no expectation that our bow ties would end up in such places. At best I thought we might corner the Australian market. To see our bow ties in the Ukraine, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Canada, the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Nigeria, Singapore, Malaysia .... it is a privilege and an honour. From my perspective, globalisation is great. And so long as we make products that people don't chuck away after two wears, that they cherish and maybe even hand over to their children or grandchildren - well then, I don't feel we left much of a carbon footprint either.
