For close to a decade, we have collaborated with talented indigenous artists around the world to make elegant, practical additions to living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, playrooms or anywhere you desire to add comfort, colour and long-lasting culturally inspired style. Our collection is heavily inspired by our rich Australian culture and heritage ranging from Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander to Maori culture. Each piece of indigenous art is uniquely designed in Australia by indigenous artists who have years of experience in indigenous art.
We work directly with highly experienced and talented Indigenous artists who have been designing culturally inspired products for generations. Our Indigenous artists are based in Australia where all design is done before the final product is then made by experienced crafters in China. Our artists conduct regular visits to the houses of production to ensure that the products are made ethically and with integrity. This close-knit relationship between us, the artists and the craftsmen and women allows us to guarantee top quality work and that all our operations remain grounded in our guiding principles – sustainability and integrity.
Artist’s collaborations are important to us and what we believe in. These partnerships help us to best represent and portray rich indigenous art through creative pieces that transform spaces. They also allow us to fully support and further the ideals of integrity and sustainability through our operations. In the past decade, we have had the pleasure and privilege of working with top artists in Australia creating collections that embrace, celebrate and teach cultural diversity. We are proud to support and promote Australian artists, designers and Indigenous art. Our artists and crafters are highly respected, valued and competitively remunerated. They are the engine that keeps us going.
We are also proud members of the Indigenous Art Code, and have been since 2013. Becoming signatories to the Code, plus committing to transparent and ethical trading was easy as our philosophy and artist contracts already lined up with the standards.
The Australia Council for the Arts and the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) created the foundation of standards for the Indigenous Art Code. To develop the Code, they worked closely with Indigenous artists, communities, visual art organisations and galleries to form agreements that would ensure trade between Indigenous artists, Indigenous art and dealers were kept fair and ethical.
These agreements are now the standards that make up the Code, which was formally launched on 29 November 2010.
