Kirrikin is a uniquely Australian endeavour. Luxury textiles featuring the artworks of contemporary Indigenous Australian artists, showcased on stunning handcrafted silk & cashmere scarves. Kirrikin designs have evolved around the theme of identity, exploring Aboriginal people, traditions, and their land.
“When we paint – whether it is on our bodies for ceremony or on bark or canvas for the market – we are not just painting for profit. We are painting as we have always done to demonstrate our continuing link with our country and the rights and responsibilities we have to it. Furthermore, we paint to show the rest of the world that we own this country, and that the land owns us.” – Galawuy Yunupinga 1993
Kirrikin is an Aboriginal word that roughly translates as “Sunday’s best clothes”. The name is used with permission from the Wonnarua elders of the Hunter Valley region, who are the traditional owners. Each artist represented by Kirrikin has been personally sourced by the business which has resulted in some amazing artists and artwork emerging, with a whole genesis in style, message and intent.
Kirrikin is an Indigenous registered business; a percentage of each & every Kirrikin purchase is directly returned to the featured Indigenous Australian artist involved in the design.
