Bellroy is thrilled to collaborate with Patty Mills – NBA basketballer, Olympic medallist and proud Indigenous Australian. To celebrate the Indigenous cultures of Australia through products he travels with over land, sky and seas.
The opportunity to create a collection of products that allow you to travel more efficiently, is a fun way to share our stories. Being able to join the artworks together is one of the coolest stories that we're all gonna be able to tell for years to come. And you can imagine these pieces going around the world, and to many different people across cultures.
"Our turtle and wamer bird love to travel wherever the current and winds may take them. The blue coloured waters represents us Torres Strait Islanders, people of the sea."
Moana Ahwang of the Wagadagam people, Mabuyag Island, Torres Strait.
"The ‘meeting places’ represent the connection First Nations people have to different families and communities. The boomerangs are family traditions, and represent the significance of movement through the sky."
Shane Cook of the Wulli Wulli people and Guwa (Koa) people.
