SOME FUNKY TRUNKS

Australian swimwear brand Funkita and its male counterpart Funky Trunks have collaborated with Bardi artist Ashley Hunter to create a striking print named Barnamboo, which translates to stingray in Bardi. The Barnamboo range is inspired by stories of the Indigenous elders and some of the proceeds from the range will be given to Indigenous community programs. Ashley was brought up listening to stories of the elders. “I’ve always had a strong belief in learning, passing on and recording the stories of the elders,” explains Ashley. “Kids should be taught about culture and how our elders grew up so that the knowledge isn’t lost forever.”
