Killara is an Aboriginal girl name that denotes permanence. 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!
This sweater is part of our Lowanna Collection for Winter 2020.
Lowanna, in some Aboriginal languages, translates to describing exquisite beauty. We have used this name in appreciation of Gija artist Lindsay Malay's wonderful paintings.
Gija man, Lindsay Malay works from the Warmun Art Centre, located 200kms outside of Kunnannura 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 Warlawoon, 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.
NGALI is tailoring 80,000 years of Aboriginal culture by weaving delicate threads of environmental sustainability with the empowered voices of the next generation in their latest collection based on the works of Giji artist Lindsay Malay.
Ngali translates to ‘us’, or ‘we’ in a number of Indigenous languages throughout Australia, and, as founder Ms Francisco said, she felt compelled to create fashion label Ngali as a way to maintain a tight fit with her culture and strengthen the social fabric of her close-knit community.
Ngali brings together gifted Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artists who highlight their masterpiece through painting and photography. We translate their Art into clothing to make Aboriginal design clothing, silk dresses, silk scarves and tops & pants.
