Why Choose Australian-Made Sofas?
There are a number of reasons why buying Australian-made furniture is beneficial to yourself, the community and the environment.
Support Your Local Economy
Choosing to buy Australian-made sofas plays an important role in boosting the local economy. When you purchase products made in Australia using Australian materials, you support a wide range of local industries, jobs and families, which is healthy for the economy and your wider community. The team at Rowes Furniture have proudly supported the development of Australian-made furniture for over 120 years.
Make a Positive Impact on the Environment
Choosing to purchase Australian-made sofas drastically reduces the environmental and economic costs associated with shipping from overseas. You will reduce freight emissions caused by extensive transport distances and decrease waste from excessive international packaging. This all serves to lessen your impact on the environment.
The standard for Australian furniture is very high, which means it will last longer over time. Higher quality leads to a reduction in waste by preventing you from contributing as heavily to landfills.
Australian Furniture Safety and Quality
By law, all Australian-made products are made according to rigorous safety and quality standards. Furniture sold in Australia has to meet strict safety regulations, which greatly reduces the potential for products to cause injury due to defects caused by poor materials or construction.
Maintain Traditional Craftsmanship
Traditional labour skills, such as carpentry and upholstery, are highly sought after. There is, however, more demand for these professions than there are professionals to fill them. Supporting Australian-made sofa manufacturers helps to boost a variety of niche industries and support these traditional niche specialists.
There are many benefits to buying Australian-made sofas, and Rowes Furniture is a proud supporter of the local manufacturing community. Give us a call or contact us online today to learn how you can support your economy.
