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 piece was first showcased on the runway at Australian Fashion Week on Gadigal Country in Sydney. Since its debut, this statement tee has had a little glow up, shifting the statement 'Honour Country' to feature across the chest.
Limited stock of the original ECA Australian Made tees in the Pink/Orange and Black/Purple style available online as well.
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.
