Dear Nevermind,

I like to buy Australian made as I am concerned that by purchasing a product that is not made in Australia our economy will suffer resulting in massive job losses. Is Nevermind Leather Australian made?

Dear Mr Abbot,

We believe in thinking globally and acting locally.

Nevermind products are very special in todays world. This is because every single item is made by a real human and not mass produced in heavily polluting factories that are fast destroying our planet. This significantly reduces our environmental “footprint” and ensures that our products are extremely tough regardless of where they are made; just like our people.

At Nevermind we feel that manufacturing in an ethically, socially and environmentally responsible manner is far more important than location.

The fact is that it would be near on impossible to find a leather worker with six generations of master craftsmen experience behind them in Australia. And if we could find such a person it would make the product unaffordable for most. The way we do business gets a fair deal for all, from the leather worker to the sales staff and that gets you as awesome product at a fair price while employing Australians as well as supporting families in a rapidly developing nation.

At Nevermind our leather is all made by a real person in their back yard using a centuries old and extremely labour intensive leather tanning technique. We do not have a factory and do not use any nasty chemicals. We support dozens of small families through our business in both Australia and overseas and indeed support a small primary school that provides free education to about a 100 small underprivileged children.

You have a choice Tony, support local communities everywhere by purchasing products that are ethically produced regardless of where they are made or feed the machine by giving your money to the massive planet eating companies and shopping centres. Unfortunately as you well know Mr Abbot, our choices have consequences, each dollar spent pushes us further toward one or the other, nothing stands still.

So rest assured Tony that when you shop at Nevermind your funky new leather has been produced ethically and sustainably. No sweatshops or dirty polluting factories and you may just be educating the next generation of Mahatma Gandhi’s. We hope that you now understand that the Australian made issue is now irrelevant.

Yours Sincerely
Nevermind Leather
