"When we paint - whether it is on our bodies for ceremony or on bark or canvas for the market - we are not just painting for profit. We are painting as we have always done to demonstrate our continuing link with our country and the rights and responsibilities we have to it. Furthermore, we paint to show the rest of the world that we own this country, and that the land owns us." - Galawuy Yunupinga 1993

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

Kirrikin is an Indigenous registered business; a percentage of each & every Kirrikin purchase is directly returned to the featured Indigenous Australian artist involved in the design. Thank you for supporting our Aboriginal communities.
