Shopping sorted: Our favourite Indigenous-owned businesses and artists to buy from.

Any time is a great time to shop — but with Reconciliation Week well and truly here, now it's more timely than ever.

A great way to show your support for the First Nations community (and, ahem, give some seriously good pressies for upcoming birthdays, or a treat for yourself) is by getting behind some local Indigenous-owned businesses.

To help provide some handy inspiration, we've rounded up a bunch of Indigenous brands you can buy from any time of year. And trust us when we say, many of these items are now in our own shopping carts!


Liandra is a luxury lifestyle brand known for its reversible swimsuit styles and signature prints, inspired by the founder's Indigenous culture. The pieces are also eco-conscious (which we love). Liandra's Creative Director and Founder, Liandra Gaykamangu, is a Yolngu woman from East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. 

The brand also just had their solo runway debut at Australian Fashion Week, which was a big success.

The Erstwilder collaboration with Indigenous artist Lauren Rogers.
