The outback’s enduring persistence from drought to floods reflects its capacity to regrow – let this be a reminder to your soul to endure through what the harsh elements of nature bring, whether it be through dusty corrugations or streams of flowing water. May you travel through rugged land, let the red dirt become your tan line, to look up at the night sky and enjoy natures spectacular show from the brisk air & simply endure your path to destiny.
Let the hammered beaten up textures, the rugged edges, the star constellations & the hints of copper featured within this collection be worn as a reminder to be persistent upon each glance. To encourage you to experience a new destination, to find a dirt road and see where it leads you, all while respecting our mother earth, the elders of the land and their powers, leaving no trace but footprints.
“I’m lucky enough to have travelled remote parts of Australia since I was a child, learning from the natives of the land, listening to campsite stories under the stars, swimming in natural gorges and running around in the red dirt. Reflecting on my 2019 journey taking me through Northern Territory & Western Australia, exploring some of the countries most rugged land; I learnt the power of persistence, the enduring natures of both the land and local elders. Astonished that many people may never have the opportunity to visit true outback communities to learn about their upmost endurance to live off the land and the beauty of the untouched wilderness. I have created this collection to inspire you to travel far and wide, to take the path less travelled, to learn the local way & to remind you to be persistent, to endure through whatever learnings are brought to you.”
