It has always been our goal to bring our audience value in the content we post & the brands we partner with. From soft, environmentally friendly threads to recommendations of like-minded businesses with products we love, we’re forever searching for authentic brands with a deep driving vision. This year we found the incredible team of women at Bush Medijina!
We are excited to announce our latest brand collaboration with Bush Medijina, a modern hand-made skincare brand founded by Warningakalina women on the remote Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory, Australia.
This month, we sent some of our team members out to the remote island of Groote Eylandt to visit the Warningakalina women and the children of Angurugu. During the time they shared stories of the local community, showed us around their work space and arranged a morning tea with our team. We had an incredible morning shooting the collaboration with Bush Medijina. We shared and shot some new release Wolfie pieces which we’re donated to the families afterwards alongside a big box of sample Wolfie clothes.
Bush Medijina combines recipes passed down through generations of Warningakalina women by harvesting local bush produce and combining it with natural and sustainable ingredients sourced from the most reputable suppliers across Australia.
Bush Medijina’s goal is to create a sustainable business to support Warningakalina women, share their culture with others, and preserve traditions and knowledge for generations to come.
“Our traditional knowledge comes from our connection to our land, native botanicals, our ancestors, and our stories. We have been using our bush knowledge and medicines to heal ourselves for generations. We want to lift our indigenous people and others up so that we can be stronger and healthier together.”
The people of Angurugu struggle with domestic violence, chronic disease, youth suicide, substance abuse, illiteracy, and other social problems. The life expectancy of this community is forty-eight years with a family funeral on average every 2-3 weeks. Working at bush medijina gives these women a break from everyday life challenges.
They have given our Wolfie Family 15% off storewide with code ‘wolfiekids’ -minimum purchase $50aud with free express post! We love this brand becuase they use natural ingredients, smell AMAZING and proceeds go to a great cause; so if you are looking for a new brand to try, we highly recommend using our code.
By purchasing from Bush Medijina, you are supporting Warningakalina women to be strong in culture, wellbeing, education, respect and advocate for better social outcomes for Angurugu.
