Over the years, the company has developed a substantial and loyal customer base, establishing itself as a leading Australian thermal garment supplier.
Merino & Jumbuck’s best selling ‘Merino Skins’ and ‘Thermo Fleece’ brands have enjoyed great success both in Australia and overseas in Asia and North America. The company is now moving into exciting, new directions through its 2016 launch of original garment designs, colours and styles.
“We are genuinely excited about the future of wool manufacturing in Australia with its limitless opportunities for a thriving, sustainable wool industry. We are committed to maintaining a strong reputation for Australian quality, style and authenticity and to sharing our beautiful wool products with the world. “ John Kallitsas, Managing Director.
Merino & Jumbuck’s move to a larger premises in East Brunswick has provided increased opportunities for the company to refine its manufacturing practices and to explore new production and design possibilities.
