Today I am going to talk about and Australian icon the Hills Hoist, an icon is a brand that are representative of their country not only in their home country but in other countries as well.
The Hills Hoist started it's life in an Adelaide back shed in 1945, from it's humble beginnings the Hills brand has grown to be one of Australia's most recognisable brands and is available in more then 30 countries now.
Now days there is pretty much a Hills product in every Australian home and today the brand has expanded beyond the original rotary clothesline. They have even moved from just back yard products into other household products now making ironing boards and screen doors.
However, they still have their innovative spirit, recently producing the first self watering garden bed.
Now as a child I remember swinging on the clothes line, I think it was something that many children did. Now I do not have a traditional clothes mind is one that is on the wall but I can tell you there have been times when I wish I did have one but there is not enough room in my yard for such a line.
