IXL Jam Jar - Australian Design Icon

The iconic conic shape of the IXL Jam Jar was designed in Melbourne Australia by industrial designer Robert Pataki.

This week I visited at the Economic Free Trade Zone at the Port of Tianjin China and I was pleased to see the familiar iconic Australian brand.

Designed in Melbourne and made in the Goulburn Valley where I grew up IXL jam demands shelf space across China.
