Welcome to Ooroo Australia and my range of made and designed in Australia handbags and accessories crafted from the finest leather and featuring textile designs from some of Australia's most celebrated Indigenous artists.
This unique eye catching collection is designed to be functional and practical for the customer that appreciates high-end style with a point of difference.
Ooroo Australia works with Australian Indigenous artists and remote community art centres in Northern Australia where we procure hand silk-screen printed textiles. This ensures ongoing revenue streams direct to the community. We collaborate with Australia’s finest leather master craftsmen to create unique pieces of wearable Australia art that celebrate the beautiful textiles and the Indigenous dreamings and culture of Northern Australia that they represent.
Before launching Ooroo Australia, founder Kendra Harding was co-owner of Crazy Owls, creating handcrafted designer handbags made from antique textiles and fabrics sourced from Australia and South East Asia. Kendra moved from the surf coast of Victoria to the Northern Territory of Australia in 2013 and on arrival fell in love with the vast beauty and stories of the country; Ooroo Australia was born.
Ooroo Australia’s ambition is to share uniquely Australian wearable art and showcase Indigenous art and design locally and internationally.
I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
