There is no better time than now to get behind local Indigenous-owned businesses.

Thanks to social media, it’s easier than ever to find fantastic, beautifully made baby products made by some very creative people. Here are 5 Indigenous businesses to buy from.  

1. Kakadu Tiny Tots

Kakadu Tiny Tots is a wholly Australian-owned company that creates authentic Aboriginal clothing, accessories and artwork. All their designs are uniquely handcrafted in remote indigenous communities in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Popular items include organic Baby Bundles, bibs, baby wraps and more.

2. Dreamtime Aroha

Dreamtime Aroha is a 100% Aboriginal-owned and operated store in Meanjin. This is the original and only home of the Aboriginal Jarjum Doll.

You can also ‘pay it forward’ and make a donation to the business, to send dolls and accessories to children in the Dreamtime Aroha community. As the site explains, “Every donation received will go toward sending babies into the community to little Jarjums as special surprises. We have been working alongside community day cares, parents and families who are living their values and spreading love and beauty.”

3. Amber Days

Amber Days is a Melbourne-based ethical children’s wear label inspired by the Australian bush, desert, and sea. Corina, the founder, is an Aboriginal mother, nature protector, artist, designer, and campaigner. 

The Amber Days children’s range includes leggings, dresses, muslin wraps, tops, onesies, shorts and more. As well as kids’ wear, Amber Days also sells gorgeous pieces for adults.

4. Yarli Creative

Madison Connors is a proud and strong Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung and Gamilaroi woman. Yarli Creative is home to a range of clothing for the whole family, as well as canvas prints that would be perfect for a nursery.

The print above right is called Yiyarrak, which translates to “day after” in Yorta Yorta language. As the site explains, “The day after you have a baby you are meet with so much emotion. So much passion. So much power. So much uncertainty. So many new challenges. Yet you have the strength. This piece represents the strength. The strength to continue. The strength to get through the uncertainty, uncomfortable, unknown. The strength to hold space for you and to know your limits.”

5. Bush Medijina

Not strictly a baby business, but one that mums should definitely try: Bush Medijina uses traditional Indigenous native botanical knowledge to create modern skin care products. It all began in a small shed, and the business supports Warningakalina women.

Try their Miracle Gift Bag (which contains a body balm, clay scrub and lip balm), the Mini Mawi Body Twin Pack, or the Mini Balm Pack.
