Style Board: Trans-Seasonal Styling with Mainie Merino Wool

Back to Basics

Every Mainie wearable art piece is a timeless accessory that will never go out of fashion.

Perfect for the woman on the go, a Mainie scarf guarantees infinite versatility and all-year-round comfort and style.

Now, as we move into the change of seasons, whether it’s from winter to spring in the northern hemisphere or from summer to autumn in the south, a beautiful scarf is a sure way to effortlessly transform dependable wardrobe basics into sophisticated fashion looks.

In cooler seasons, our featured Red Bark Trees scarf is the perfect way to turn favourite perennial pieces like a T-shirt and blue jeans into a standout designer styling.

Beautifully handcrafted from the finest Woolmark-certified pure Australian Merino wool, this stunning scarf is designed especially for stylish women who seek fashion that is both sustainable and ethical.

Red Bark Trees is based on an original painting by Warlpiri Aboriginal artist, Nicole Napaljarri Stevens.

Artist: Nicole Napaljarri Stevens

Nicole’s painting depicts an ancient Dreaming story that has been handed down to her over tens of thousands of years through many generations of her Warlpiri ancestors.

Due to the isolation of their tribal homelands in the remote Tanami Desert region of Central Australia, the Warlpiri were among some of the last Aboriginal people in Australia to make first contact with Europeans.

To this day, the Warlpiri people continue to maintain a strong connection to their ancestral lands and traditional culture.

Mainie is committed to supporting Aboriginal women artists to earn an independent income from their own work and preserve their cultural heritage for future generations. A Mainie scarf not just a beautiful piece of wearable art. It is a tangible and meaningful celebration of the survival of the world’s oldest living culture.

All Mainie designs are ethically acquired under licence in accordance with the Indigenous Art Code. Royalties from every sale are paid to the Aboriginal artists and their families.
