Our Story

Our Mantra…

 

Mainie is a distinctively Australian fashion and gift brand to covet and collect, capturing the hearts and minds of discerning travellers and fashionable people the world over.

 

What is MAINIE…

 

Mainie is a stunning collection of beautifully handcrafted modal scarves, silk scarves, silk kaftan tops and Australian Merino wool scarves.  

Each exquisite piece has been lovingly designed to feature authenticated Aboriginal artworks painted by women artists from the Central Desert and Far North Queensland regions of Australia.

 

Meet MAINIE…

 

Mainie Founder, Charmaine Saunders (or ‘Mainie’ to those nearest and dearest), is a descendant of the Gunggari Aboriginal people from the Maranoa River region of South Western Queensland.

Charmaine’s love of Aboriginal fine arts is palpable, developed over many years of living and working in remote Aboriginal communities in Queensland and the Northern Territory.

 

A Promise with Every Piece…

 

Every piece tells its own Dreamtime story and perpetuates the flame of the world’s oldest living culture. 

Every piece sold gives back to the woman artist who created the artwork to elevate and empower her, her family and her community. 

Every piece is destined to become a treasured heirloom.
