Appliqued cotton tee.

JIJAKA Fabric Range.
JIJAKA is an Aboriginal word meaning "kangaroo”. Jijaka’s colourful, contemporary art tells the stories of desert and coastal tribes who have lived on the Australian continent for more than 40,000 years. Their corroboree ceremonies trace the ancient Dreamtime journeys of spirit ancestors, as they travel the vast Australian landscape.
Royalties from Jijaka fabric sales support the Nangala Project, to relieve poverty and disadvantage amongst Australian Indigenous children and their families through creating locally engaged & sustainable opportunity.
Designed in Australia and under licence royalty-paid to Aboriginal Artists.
Jijaka is a collection of artworks that were developed by a collective of Aboriginal artists working for the Jumbana Group over the course of 20+ years. All works within the Jijaka archive are now part of the National Museum of Australia's collection and as such we do not credit individual Aboriginal artists with individual artworks.
