As part of our collaboration with Warlukurlangu Artists, the Lukarrara swim brief shares the story of Pauline Napangardi Gallagher's Lukarrara Jukurrpa [Desert Fringe-Rush Seed Dreaming].

The deep brown and white lines contrast beautifully as they wrap around the body. The geometry of the pattern is symbolic of the way seeds would fall to the ground and be collected.

Crafted from high-quality recycled materials, the Lukarrara swim brief not only looks beautiful but also performs and feels comfortable. Perfect for swimming, lounging, and long days at the beach. 

  • Made in Australia

  • Fully lined in front
  • White internal drawstring

    Artwork Story

    This Dreaming is associated with a place called Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu.

    ‘Lukarrara’ [desert fringe-rush] is a grass with an edible seed. The seeds are traditionally ground on a ‘ngatinyanu’ [large stone] with a ‘ngalikirri’ [smaller stone] to make flour. This flour is mixed with ‘ngapa’ [water] to make damper cakes, which are cooked and eaten.

    In Traditional Warlpiri paintings, iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa [Dreaming]. In Pauline’s painting, ‘U’ shapes can depict the Karnta [women] collecting ‘lukarrara’. Straight lines are used to portray seeds that fall to the ground, which are collected by women using their ‘parrajas’ [wooden food carriers] and ‘karlangu’ [digging sticks].
