Kirrikin Ethical and Sustainable Resortwear Online with The Fashion Advocate


Kirrikin is a uniquely Australian endeavour. Luxury accessories feature artworks of contemporary Indigenous Australian artists, showcased on stunning handcrafted fashion and accessories. Their exclusive designs revolve around identity through exploring Aboriginal people, traditions, and their land. Kirrikin is spirited, capturing the essence of Australia.

Kirrikin is an Aboriginal word that roughly translates as ‘Sunday's best clothes’. The team are proud to introduce the word Kirrikin to you, as it was a part of the original language recorded by missionaries visiting the Hunter Valley early in the 1820s. It is also part of Wonnarua language revitalisation.

The Kirrikin Summer artwork is digitally printed onto sustainable fabric including Viscose (wood pulp) and Vita Lycra (Recycled Plastic Bottle lycra) to make unique and luxurious garments.

Kirrikin is an Indigenous registered social enterprise and a percentage of each and every Kirrikin purchase is directly returned to the featured Indigenous Australian artist involved in the design.
