Kirrikin is a unique Australian effort. Luxury accessories feature the works of contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists and are displayed in impressive handmade fashion and accessories. Their exclusive design revolves around identity by exploring locals, traditions, and lands. Kirrikin is energetic and captures the essence of Australia.
Kirrikin is an Aboriginal word, roughly translated as “the best clothes on Sunday”. The team is proud to introduce the phrase kirrikin to you because it is part of the original language recorded by the missionaries who visited Hunter Valley in the early 1920s. It is also part of the revitalization of the won area language.
Kirrikin summer’s artworks are digitally printed on sustainable fabrics, including viscose (wood pulp) and vita Lycra (recycled plastic bottle Lycra), to make unique and luxurious clothes.
Kirrikin is a social enterprise registered by aborigines. Every time kirrikin is purchased, a certain proportion will be returned directly to Australian Aboriginal artists participating in the design.
All kirrikin series are designed in Perth, Western Australia.
