authentic . unique . ethical .
through cross-cultural collaborations
We are a small social enterprise based in Darwin.
We make and sell accessories, clothing and homewares from fabrics designed by Aboriginal artists and hand printed in Australia.
We do this in partnership with fair trade organisations in Cambodia that train and employ disabled artisans. Their work is highly skilled and showcases the hand printed fabrics with great respect.
In our online store we stock and promote lengths of hand printed and hand woven fabric sourced from Australia and Cambodia. You will also find a range of superb wall art and homewares made by our fair trade partners.
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
Awareness of the integrity of hand made textile art and crafts is growing globally. This is now huge interest in Indigenous Australian fabric prints.

During COVID-19 we have increased our efforts to support our partners in Cambodia. They are experiencing serious hardship with the abrupt loss of tourism. In 2020 Flying Fox Fabrics has been sending more fabric, increasing our orders and stepping up our own marketing to generate sales for them. We have also expanded partnerships with art centres to develop new merchandise.
