Story: Miles

Like all of our products, the Miles is named after a woman we admire - in this case the legendary Miles Franklin. Born Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin, she spun literature about the scrubby NSW bush where she grew up. She flatly rejected women’s traditional roles in society through her inspired female characters, which made her a controversial figure in early 20th century Australia. She is most famous for bequeathing her estate to create the Miles Franklin Prize for Australian literature.
