A manufacturer makes it against all the odds

Rising costs and cheap imports have caused many Australian clothing manufacturers to bite the dust. Koala Clothing had to twice rebuild its business from scratch, but it's still standing -- and stronger than ever.

You might think that being one of the last Australian clothing manufacturers would be pretty hard, battling high costs, the high dollar and cheap imports from Bangladesh. You’d be dead right -- it’s so tough they’re almost all gone.

But how about adding to that a few extra degrees of difficulty, like waking one morning to find your factory burned to the ground, or having your bank accounts cleaned out by the accountant you trusted.
