 . wander  began as a special collaboration with our friends at Warndu,  Rebecca Sullivan & Damien Coulthard, who hosted Ngarku’adlu ( Lets Eat) at the Adelaide Film Festival this month, working with Indigenous Chefs & using locally sourced, seasonal & wild harvested produce with an emphasis on supporting Aboriginal enterprises.

 

Along with Warndu we are created some wearable pieces using  certified organic cotton & a stunning print painted by incredible teacher & artist & Warndu’s own Damien Coulthard. 

“ Here Arruru and Mathari interact with their diverse environment communicating with their ancestors.

The black dots are symbolic of burnt out campfires over many thousands of generations, moving across and caring for Yarta. (country)"
