"RECONCILIATION THROUGH DESIGN" EMBRACES INDIGENOUS COLLABORATION

Embracing reconciliation as a core value, Milliken-Ontera’s “Reconciliation Through Design” initiative provides a platform for collaboration between Indigenous artists and designers and the commercial interiors industry. It also provides a platform for corporate Australia to support indigenous communities through meaningful partnerships that directly benefit the collaborators. In doing so, the rich heritage of Indigenous art and their artists are magnified on the largest canvas possible, the floor.

 

Milliken-Ontera’s collaboration with Saltwater Freshwater Arts Alliance and the National Aboriginal Design Agency is the beginning of the brand’s “Reconciliation Through Design” initiative resulting in the development of the Water Yuludarla commercial carpet collection – a six-piece compendium by Gumbaynggirr artist, Brentyn Lugan.

 

The “Reconciliation Through Design” initiative has formed an avenue for diversity and inclusivity through the creation of commercial carpet products that celebrate the Indigenous experience as uniquely Australian.
