Take a look at the limited edition Indigenous print — Brolga
Our latest collaboration has resulted in the stunning ‘Brolga’ range, a collection of limited-edition activewear created with the help of Indigenous artist Bobbi Lockyer.
Available as of March 25th, the range includes high-waisted leggings in 4 lengths, bike shorts, 3/4, ⅞ and full length tights and a crop top as well as options for pregnant women.
We know you will want to get your hands on this gorgeous activewear but take a look first at the story behind the one-of-a-kind design.
Bobbi Lockyer and the meaning of brolga
Ms Lockyer, who is a Ngarluma, Kariyarra, Nyulnyul and Yawuru woman and a mother of four boys, hand-painted the beautiful brolga print featured across our new range of activewear.
Based in Port Hedland, WA, Bobbi also photographed the campaign, which stars some of her girlfriends, in the Kariyarra red dust and salt flats of her hometown.
As Bobbi explains, “The painting was inspired by strong women.”
“In our culture’s Dreaming about Brolga story, Brolga was a beautiful girl obsessed with dancing. Dancing was her only love and nothing distracted her.”
“I like to think of Brolga as a headstrong woman, passionate and determined, going for her dreams. This is why I chose to paint brolga feathers for this design, to symbolise women with our strengths, passions and show that we are going for our dreams” Bobbi shares.
Highlighting the importance of Australia’s Indigenous history
It is such an honour to be able to collaborate with Bobbi. According to our co-founder Nadia Tucker, “Our purpose is to celebrate all women - to inspire them to live their best life and this collaboration is a crucial part of that, helping to amplify the voices and showcasing the art of our first nation’s women.”
This new activewear range reflects our wider purpose; to continue to build a community of positive, kind and strong women. As co-founder Stevie Angel explains, “We believe in building each other up and cheering each other on.”
In conjunction with the launch of our new range, Active Truth is now offering customers the opportunity to include their traditional place names when entering their address through the ordering process. We are proud to be one of the first companies to include this in their checkout options.
