The unique nature of these artworks means that items with the same print might not match exactly, as they may feature different zoom levels or sections of the painting.

Source

We collaborate with ethical production partners in South America and Europe that we personally assessed and vetted for the state of their facilities, the code of conduct they apply, the feedback from employees, and application of fair wages; amongst many other factors.

Based on our research and expertise in manufacturing, crafting garments in the same country where the fabric originates is a more sustainable approach, minimising waste. This holds true when the facilities uphold sustainable manufacturing standards.

The Original Artwork: Pantu/Tali

Pantu means "Salt Lake" and Tali "Sand Dunes"
The original piece is a Walka board (Burnings on wood). Walka is Desert design and inextricably linked with Tjukurpa: the Law and way of life of Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people). The symbols were traditionally used in cave, ground and body paintings, in story telling, teaching and signalling inheritance.
Both the dot painting and etching techniques, where walka is burnt into the wood with wire heated on a wood fire, have become Centralian traditions, evolving with the adaptation of traditional design for public display and as a depiction of Tjukurpa and landscape. In this walka board the curved lines represent salt lakes and sand dunes.
