We are excited to announce our collaboration with Nardurna.
The beautiful print TOGETHER celebrates Aboriginal Cultures & Adventurous Women.
This pattern is about people, no matter what colour, size, young or old,
we are all here, TOGETHER.
A message from the Artist Ryhia Dank...
I am Gudanji/Wakaja, a contemporary Aboriginal woman who grew up in a NT community and now live on the Sunshine Coast. My skin colour does not define me rather, my history, family and my experiences inform my identity.
I am also my Dad’s daughter so I have English/Irish and Spanish/Austrian heritage and spent holidays surfing on the Gold Coast with my paternal grandparents. It is important, as it has all contributed to who I am.
I call my storying Nardurna. It means woman in my language.
Our big story is about three women who came from the ocean near Ngukurr in the Gulf of Carpentaria. They travelled a long way and then created our place, the hills and fresh water Country. The three lines on my brand are to acknowledge those three women who made our place and then made us.
I am linked to that story and it links me to my place because as my granny said,
Ngurruwani Gudanji-marndi maga guda gurijba iligirra gamamjani
(Gudanji people are from the fresh water and hill country)
The TOGETHER bikini bottoms.
They are designed to stay on with a drawstring tie on the side plus they have a really cute ruched detail on the bum.
High leg and medium bum coverage, you won't have to worry about these coming off in the waves.

- Medium bun coverage

WHAT ARE WE MADE OF?
Your second skin is a super soft & durable fabric that allows a 4-way stretch, so you can move in any way or form you wish to.
The luxe fabric is fast drying & light weight. It's also abrasion resistant & chlorine tested. Our leggings & shorts are made of compression fabric.
All tags are made of recycled paper and your parcel will be sent in reusable & biodegradable materials.
To keep your swimwear/activewear looking and fitting like new, please follow these tips:
Hand wash and hang-dry
If machine washing - use low temperature and put them in a mesh bag. Avoid using fabric softener as the chemicals may weaken the breathability functions of the fabric
Please note that contact with rough surfaces and velcro fasteners should be avoided, since they can pull out the white fibers in the fabric, damaging the items appearance
