A very unique pattern

This Walka board pattern by Cynthia Burke is a contemporary way of continuing to celebrate, teach and live life through the Tjukurpa. The Walka board is burnt into the wood with wire heated on a wood fire.

Why we love it:

  • Butter Soft 4-way stretch fabric

  • Cheeky fit with a scoop neckline and a low scoop back
  • Double-layer front
  • Four-way stretch material stretches and recovers on the cross and lengthwise grains
  • Strong support in the waves or while playing sports
  • Double-layer design - DOES NOT SAG

Fabric

♻️ 81% REPREVE recycled polyester (made from your old water bottles or other post-consumer plastics)
♻️ 19% LYCRA XTRA-LIFE (for longer-lasting beachwear)

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.

For a deeper understanding or any queries, please feel free to reach out.

The artists we collaborate with are excited to share their art more widely through our collections. Most of them reached out to us directly to request a collaboration with us. We have put in place a strong collaborative process to ensure their art is respectfully placed on each garment. Wear it and share it proudly!
