Lukarrara Collection

A traditional story

This exclusive swimwear collection by Pauline Napangardi Gallagher tells of the edible seed from the 'desert fringe-rush' grass that is traditionally gathered to make damper.

The geometry of the pattern is symbolic of how these seeds would fall to the ground. The lines contrast beautifully as they wrap around your body.

Available in eight colours, each design has been translated from one of Pauline's Lukarrara Jukurrpa [Desert Fringe-Rush Seed Dreaming] paintings.
