Magpie Goose @magpiegoose.nt
It is named after a bird native to the Top End of Australia. The magpie goose sits at the top of the tree eating fermented mangoes and squawking all day; it doesn't care what anyone thinks. Like its namesake, Magpie Goose is loud, proud and unapologetic.
Magpie Goose is 100% Australian made, with designs created in remote communities, and textile printing and clothing manufactured in Sydney.
Magpie Goose is currently featuring five designs from HopeVale community, in Far North QLD; as well as four designs from Jinibara country artists (north of Brisbane). Previous collections include collaborations with four remote NT artists (Borroloola + Urapunga). Our first range showcased textiles from four remote community art centres - Palngun Wurnangat (Wadeye), Injalak Arts (Gunbalanya), Tiwi Design (Wurrumiyanga, Tiwi Islands) and Bábbarra Women’s Centre (Maningrida).
New textile design collaborations are always in the works; so stay tuned for new collection releases!
Each design tells a story - of people, place and culture.
