CANBERRA Hydro Flask 21 OZ Standard Mouth Sport Cap Canada Sale , Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- Australian winemakers and exporters are hoping for a boost in profits from this week, as tariffs to China are further reduced as a result of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA).

China is the nation's largest export market for wine, with the export side of the industry now worth almost 375 million U.S. dollars annually, however, with the further tariff reductions, China's middle class will be able to access more wines at a cheaper price, something exporters hope will contribute to a bigger bottom line.

Since Chinese wine connoisseurs first developed a taste for premium Australian wine Hydro Flask 21 OZ Standard Mouth Canada Sale , growth in the wine export business has steadied, but with the tariffs falling to just 5.6 percent from this week, exporter Kandy Xu expects the growth rate to jump yet again.

"In the beginning we exported about two containers per year, but now from last year we export 15 containers," she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Friday.

Before ChAFTA, Australian wine was subject to a 14 percent tariff before it hit Chinese shelves, however the Winemakers' Federation's Tony Battaglene said as the tariff rate continues to reduce before hitting zero by 2019 Hydro Flask 21 OZ Canada Sale , Australian winemakers and exporters can get a real leg up over the competition.

"China's now our biggest market, so this is a great chance to increase our profits," Battaglene told the ABC.

"We've got around 24 percent, 25 percent of their market ahead of France. We're now beating the old world at their game so that's a really good outcome for us."

TORONTO, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Carrie Bradshaw's shoe collection in the hit HBO series Sex and the City can't hold a candle to that of one Toronto woman's, who takes the term shoe-crazy to a whole new level.

Sonja Bata is no ordinary fashionista and her collection of shoes is more than just a fashion statement.

The roughly 13 Hydro Flask 18 OZ Wide Mouth Canada Sale ,000 pairs of footwear she's amassed over the years aren't just kept hidden in her closet, but are displayed at the Bata Shoe Museum to document the history of footwear.

It all started when Sonja, wife of the late Thomas Bata, son of a well-known Czechoslovakian shoe manufacturer, took notice of the changes in footwear in different parts of the world she traveled to, said the museum's senior curator Elizabeth Semmelhack.

Bata's love affair with shoes started just like that. She began collecting in the 1940s, and in 1995 Hydro Flask 18 OZ Standard Mouth Canada Sale , she opened the museum, which boasts one of the most extensive collections of shoes.

"She began to collect ethnographic examples of footwear to show just how traditional footwear around the world was so different, and the next thing you know, she had 13,000 pairs of shoes," Semmelhack told Xinhua.

Bata saw beyond the aesthetics of footwear and recognized the many stories that were waiting to be told. Semmelhack said when looked at chronologically, shoes tell a story of not just the person who once wore them Hydro Flask 18 OZ Canada Sale , but also the technological development, and social and cultural history that was happening at that specific moment.

"Shoes have cultural meaning and so it's in the shoe itself and how it functions culturally that so much information, so much that 's held truthful in any given society can be revealed," she said. "Once you begin to sort of unravel that history, you begin to see just how fundamental clothing, not just footwear is, to the construction of identity Hydro Flask 12 OZ Coffee Canada Sale , gender and culture."

It's no secret women love shoes, especially the gorgeous yet bank-breaking four and five-inch stilettos. While some cringe at the thought of walking in those painful sky-high heels, most women embrace it. Footwear has always been a symbol of female sexuality and status, said Semmelhack, and the level of practicality of the shoes express just that.

"Impracticality is one of the ways that the wealthy can express their status," she said. "If you wear shoes that are made of silk, if you wear high heels Hydro Flask 20 OZ Coffee Canada Sale , if you wear shoes that are embroidered with precious pearls, you're clearly not farming and so you're able to buy wearing shoes that are impractical show that you lived a life of leisure and that expression of status has been with us for quite a long time."

One of the more extreme examples is the practice of foot binding in imperial China. Semmelhack believes the practice is no different to people who wears braces in today's society.

"We alter the face, we alter the structure of the teeth and it' s seen as a good thing to do. It's what good responsible parents do. It's also expensive and you can begin to see the commonalities of why the impulse to foot bind was practiced in China. It was about respectability," she said.

With four different galleries which focus on shoes of celebrities, native North American footwear, shoes collected in the field, and another dedicated at looking at the rise of the sneaker culture Hydro Flask 16 OZ Coffee Canada Sale , Semmelhack said they're constantly trying to tell a different story to their audience.

"My goal as a curator is that people come in and say: Sneakers? I know about sneakers. And then they leave and go: I didn't know that about sneakers," she said. "So that footwear, we all wear it, we might think that we know everything there is to know about footwear, but it's my job to show you there's so much more to the world of shoes."

The vast collections at the Bata Shoe Museum are either purchased, on loan or donated to help tell over 4,500 years of shoe history.
