Each item is accompanied by an information card outlining the provenance of the textiles, art, country and culture. Every bespoke piece has a story to tell.
We ethically procure textiles directly from art centres in the NT and WA featuring award-winning textiles from Aboriginal artists and talented emerging textile designers.
Our Barramundi leather is sustainably sourced from the pristine waters of the Kimberley. This once underutilized by-product is now part of our uniquely Australian range.
I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
