Mainie

Luxurious - Authentic – Unique

Mainie’s luxurious silk fashions are designed entirely in Australia and feature authentic Aboriginal Dreamtime artworks.

Mainie’s first collection features original artworks by Warlpiri women artists, who are represented by the internationally acclaimed Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation. Warlukurlangu is a stronghold of traditional Warlpiri arts, language and culture, located in the remote outback community of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory of Australia.

The artworks featured on Mainie’s designs are based on ancient Warlpiri ceremonial patterns that have been passed from generation to generation over thousands of years. The patterns illustrate traditional Warlpiri Dreamtime stories. The rich and vibrant hues used by the artists perfectly reflect the unique beauty of their Tanami Desert homelands in the Australian Outback.

Mainie’s fashion garments have been manufactured in the finest silks from the fabled Silk Cities of China. China has a tradition of silk production that spans more than 4700 years. In the thirteenth century, Marco Polo, the famed Venetian traveller who journeyed along the most eastern parts of the Silk Road, noted the high quality of Chinese silk and the exceptional skills of the Chinese artisan silk makers.

Chinese silks are still widely considered to be the finest in the world and are highly sought after by discerning silk merchants from across the globe.

Mainie’s first collection lovingly embraces traditional Aboriginal Dreamtime mythology and the magnificent silk treasures of the Orient. The collection is a joyous celebration of two fabulous ancient and enduring fine arts cultures.

All Aboriginal artworks featured on Mainie’s fashions are acquired through formal licensing arrangements. These arrangements ensure that all dealings with the artists are fair and ethical, and in accordance with the relevant Aboriginal art industry principles and standards. Royalty fees from the sale of Mainie garments are returned to the artists.
