Merendari is an Aboriginal girl name that denotes beauty. Each product in this range is given an Aboriginal girl name in celebration of all the gifts that our First Nation's Women bring to the world!
Gija man, Lindsay Malay works from the Warmun Art Centre, located 200kms outside of Kununurra in the Kimberley, Western Australia. Warmun is renowned for its artists' use of natural ochre and pigments to denote a contemporary expression of Country and culture and its reputation is felt both nationally and internationally due to the calibre of highly successful artists in the community.
Lindsay's work is vibrant and transfixing, telling the story of the Country he inherited from his Grandfather and of which his family regained traditional ownership of in 2010.
Lindsay and Melbourne based Wiradjuri woman, Denni Francisco, founder and designer of fashion label Ngali, have collaborated to translate Lindsay's art into textile designs. This exciting collaboration was established through a shared vision of celebration culture, showcasing Aboriginal centred design and instigating mutually beneficial partnerships across the country between cross-sector Aboriginal businesses.
