products made
through cross-cultural collaborations

Flying Fox Fabrics is all about love. Love of fabric. Love of
First Nations art. Love of fair trade. Love of quality products. Love of collaboration.

We are a small social enterprise based in Darwin, in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Flying Fox Fabrics makes beautiful and unique bags, purses and homewares from fabrics designed and printed in Australia.

This is done in partnerships with Aboriginal artists, fair trade organisations in Cambodia that train and employ disabled artisans and ethical fabric producers.

The work of our manufacturing partners is highly skilled and showcases the fabrics with great respect. Our products are made in small batches and in limited editions.

In our online stores (here and Etsy) we stock and promote our own products. We also stock select products made by our friends at Better World Arts.

We can make orders on demand and have produced a range of exclusive products for art centres such as Ikuntji Artists, Papulankutja Artists and Bula’bula Arts. Collaborations welcome.

We are currently developing a range of hand & digitally printed fabrics – all made in Australia.

We love collaborations and seek out and enter into partnership with like minded art centres, individuals and companies to promote and support Indigenous Australian art and cultures. Get in touch. Photo: Ikuntji Artists

We were able to support our Cambodian partners during the difficult COVID years – when borders closed and tourism collapsed. Their own retail outlets had to close but we continued to place orders and were able to sell online from Australia. In the last four years we have sent more than $150,000 to our partners in Cambodia.
