You can dress them up or dress them down. These exquisite 'wearable art' pieces look just as gorgeous when worn over a swimsuit at an island resort as they do when teamed with classic black for a sophisticated evening event in the city.

Mainie tops are the ultimate in trans-seasonal dressing. You can pair them with wardrobe staples like a simple tank top in spring and summer, or layer them over a turtleneck sweater in cooler months – either way, you can create standout looks that will get you noticed for all the right reasons.

Silk is a natural fibre. It is both lightweight and durable, and an excellent thermo-regulator, keeping you cool when it’s warm, and warm when it’s cool.

At Mainie nothing is more important to us than our commitment to sustainable fashion ethics.

You will love the story behind every one of our Mainie creations. Each top is lovingly handmade, right down to the hand-rolled hems and hand-crocheted button loops.

All tops feature authentic Dreamtime designs that have been ethically acquired under licence in accordance with the Indigenous Art Code. Royalties from Mainie sales are paid to the Aboriginal women artists and their families.

Mainie is committed to supporting Aboriginal women artists from remote Outback communities to earn an independent income from their own work and preserve their traditional culture for future generations. 

Every Mainie gives back to the Aboriginal woman artist who created the original design, to elevate and empower her, her family and her community.

Proudly Australian owned and operated, Mainie is a Supply Nation verified Indigenous owned business and an Indigenous Art Code approved dealer member.
