40 million sheep and a Kiwi
A two year adventure turned into a six year stint in another country, and theres nothing like living overseas to bring out your patriotism to your own land.
It was during this time abroad that I decided to start my own business making cushions, all using New Zealand's own fibre . . . and of course, our most well known fibre comes from those 40 million sheep we have!
So New Zealand wool combined with a little creativity, and acushynumber was born . . .
