ART, DESIGN AND APPAREL FOR YOUR HABITAT, INSPIRED BY OURS.
Behind all of our art, design and apparel is:
- a respect for the environment which we draw inspiration from
- a respect for where materials come from and who made them
- a respect for the quality and longevity a buyer seeks in a product, whether this be artwork, prints or apparel.
The moody ocean, the creatures beneath it's surface, the waves that dance to shore and the sun baked red dirt of the land. These are some of the elements that inspire our fine art works.
Majority of our art works are drawings which are created through layering black ink scribbles on a surface. Most works are in black and white with the occasional work being splashed with some colour from inks or acrylic paints.
Original drawings are on Arches 300gsm 100% hot pressed cotton rag paper and drawn with Unipin fine liners. If cared for correctly, works will last beyond 75 years
Prints are printed on 290gsm Hahnemühle Bamboo paper which is an environmentally friendly paper with 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton. The paper does not contain optical brighteners and bamboo is acid- and lignin-free while still being museum quality and resisting ageing if cared for correctly.
All artworks are printed in Australia and to prevent waste are made to order.

We like to delve a little deeper with our designs and have a yarn about what YOU do and what YOU want before we create.
All of our apparel is made from 100% organic Indian cotton and the entire production process is controlled and certified in accordance with GOTS (Global Organic Standard). The manufacturing facilities which make our apparel are powered by green renewable energy.
The work places where our apparel is made complies with the FWF (Fair Wear Foundation) Code of Labour Practices meaning workers are in a safe work environment, receive correct breaks and remuneration for their time.
All of our swing tags are made from 100% post consumer recycled waste.
We like things we purchase to last, so figure you do too.
Numerous samples have been purchased, worn and washed to find suppliers and printers which we are happy with. We've put our apparel through the hard yards - desert sun, salty surf sessions, squid ink and numerous camping missions. We really have put a lot of time and effort into this and trust in our products to last as hard as you play.
We strive to reduce our waste. We avoid use of plastic packaging with our apparel and use paper or compostable packaging for postage.
