This tee honours Country and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Honouring Country allows us to think deeply about the rich history and culture of our First People's but also the impact of invasion, dispossession and colonisation - the cause of disparity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians today.
Honouring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, sovereignty, Country meaningfully is respectful, and part of the truth telling that must happen in Australia.

This product is Ally Friendly.
Ally friendly merch is for everyone.
When we see non-Indigenous people wearing our designs, we feel proud that they are repping our merch and culture.
When we see Aboriginal designs in the world, it means Indigenous people are not invisible in the landscape.
But, purchasing from Aboriginal brands, businesses and wearing Indigenous designs alone is surface-level allyship. There needs to be more commitment than just buying from Aboriginal brands and businesses.
Wearing Aboriginal design is not dismantling a system that oppresses Indigenous people. Allies need to do more and learn more. Wearing our tees is a great starting point. We have equipped you with our merch and some of the educational content to go with them. We want you to go out in the world, have these important conversations and find ways to do more and support more.
Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) ensures our workforce manufacturing our clothes on Wurundjeri Country are being paid appropriately, receiving all their legal entitlements and working in safe conditions.
Honouring Country tee also available in pink/orange.
Relaxed fit. Gender-inclusive sizing. Tees available in sizes XS-5XL.
Cold machine wash. Do not bleach we love our colour. Hang in shade to dry. Warm iron (yeah, right!).
