Aboriginal Design Scarves October 06 2016

Shop our latest range of beautiful Australian made scarves, featuring designs inspired by popular Aboriginal artworks. Each scarf tells a unique story and royalties from the sale of each product directly benefit the individual artist and their community. 

Aboriginal art is based on ancient stories and is filled with symbols of ‘the Dreamtime’ period, which represents the creation of the world. These stories are over 50,000 years old and have been passed through many generations verbally and visually on rock art and bark paintings. 

For example the artwork depicted on the limited edition silk scarf below is called Yanjirlpirri or Napaljarri-Warnu Jukurrapa - Star or Seven Sisters Dreaming which tells the story of the seven ancestral Napaljarri sisters who are found in the night sky.

  

All of our scarves are great souvenirs and gifts, but they're also a unique fashion accessory that guarantee to turn heads and start conversations. Each product comes with information about the artist, the artwork and dreamtime story so you can share a piece of Aboriginal culture with anyone who asks!
