Mainie represents a special melding of two ancient cultures, where the Dreamtime meets the Silk Road... Authentic Aboriginal designs by traditional artists from Central Australia’s remote Tanami Desert region and the artisan silk-makers from the fabled Silk Cities of China come together to create luxurious, wearable art with a uniquely Australian design that will appeal to those who value the finer things in life. The original artworks featured in Mainie’s designs are based on ancient, ancestral stories and sacred ceremonial customs which have been passed down through many generations of Warlpiri women over thousands of years. The rich and vibrant hues used by the artists perfectly reflect the awe-inspiring beauty of their desert homelands in the Australian Outback. Perfect for stylish travellers seeking the most versatile and lightweight of fashion accessories, Mainie’s collection of silk scarves, tops, capes and wraps are generously sized to be styled in an almost infinite number of ways. From dreamy boho luxe to the stylish corporate world, and breezy resort wear to evening glamour, there is a Mainie for every occasion. Each beautifully handcrafted piece tells a story, and will become a treasured possession for its owner. All of Mainie’s exquisite silk pieces are beautifully boxed with artwork authentication, artist biographies as well as each artwork’s Dreamtime Story in English, Chinese and Japanese.
