Hayley, a Bardi Jawi woman with family connections through One Arm Point in the Dampier Peninsula region has a deliberate focus on colour in her work. She has created an incredible piece of art that we have translated onto our Wild Mingo mats.
Our newest design called Oorunye, meaning Women in Bardi, tells the story of female empowerment through the women of today, past and emerging. There are symbols of empowerment, strength and courage. The hills featured represent movement which is so important to all us humans to stay healthy and active.
Launching to the public in NAIDOC week starting July 2 as a celebration of indigenous art and culture. We are so proud to celebrate indigenous culture and have also partnered with another incredible indigenous female Keely Meijer as the face of our campaign.
Hayley shares “there aren't many Indigenous mob that attend fitness classes so I hope this collaboration can bring awareness and get rid of the shame stigma when entering a fitness class with their mats”
It’s our hope that all people feel a sense of connection to this design to take what they need from it, find inspiration, courage or motivation to move their bodies in ways that feel good.
