What was the past like?
In a recent tidy up we opened a box of items in our archive, all made in Australia, when such items could compete in the market against Asian imports.
We had forgotten we had even designed these items. We are proud of these Corban & Blair products designed and made here by local manufactures, many of them no longer exist, as the global world has disrupted the way things were.
To meet this challenge Corban & Blair is now a company that designs and manufactures bespoke products in Australian, New Zealand and China, mainly for the corporate sector.
On a positive note, our bookbinding factory Boundrite, could keep work in Australia by being very streamlined and efficient in our production processes.
We have other archive boxes to explore, that we keep as time capsules, so we can have another dip into our creative past and hopefully be inspired.
