The majority (60%) of Australians prefer Australia-made furniture and home furnishings, with most (57%) also preferring Australian-made mattresses, pillows, quilts and bedding, according to recent Roy Morgan research.

Almost all Australians (99%) are aware of the Australian Made logo, with the vast majority (84%) associating it with supporting local jobs and employment and over half with products that are of high quality (58%) and are produced using ethical labour (57%).

Australian bed, mattress and bedding retailer, Forty Winks, has partnered with the Australian Made Campaign to highlight its continued support of Australian manufacturers and products.

Forty Winks has a long history offering an extensive range of high-quality Australian Made mattresses, bedroom furniture and top-of-bed accessories, through its network of more than 100 family-owned and operated stores.

Australian Made CEO, Ben Lazzaro, said Forty Winks is committed to providing its customers with a wide variety of genuine Australian products both in-store and online, while offering a valuable channel to market for Australia’s furniture, mattress and bedding manufacturers.

“This commitment is set to be further enhanced through a strengthened partnership with the famous Australian Made logo,” he said.

“Australian manufacturers are renowned for crafting some of the finest products in the world, produced to Australia’s high quality and safety standards. We applaud Forty Winks for its support of these local industries. They are investing in local jobs and businesses, which has tremendous flow-on effects for the economy and broader community.”

Forty Winks CEO, David Edwards added, “Forty Winks is a proudly Australian owned and operated brand, represented in every state and territory by local family franchisees who provide employment to well over 600 Australians.

“As an iconic Australian brand, Forty Winks is passionate about supporting local manufacturers and this rekindled partnership with Australian Made will further bolster our commitment to stocking Australian made product in every store.”
