Introducing Mainie Australia’s Men’s Collection Featuring New Designs from 2017 NAIDOC Artist of the Year

Thursday 5 October 2017. With the spring racing and festive season just around the corner, Mainie Australia has introduced its first collection of pure silk neck ties, bow ties and pocket squares for men in a range of five authentic Indigenous artworks.

Mainie’s founding director and designer, Charmaine Saunders said it was only a matter of time before they released a collection for men that would complement the womens popular range of wearable art spanning scarves in varying sizes, versatile tops and sarongs.

“There has always been a strong demand for Mainie to release its own range for men that would tick both boxes of fashion accessory and giftwear,” Ms Saunders said.

“With our brand now established and featured in retail outlets in both Cairns and throughout Australia, the timing is now right to add a men’s collection,” she said.

According to Ms Saunders, Mainie’s neck tie and bow tie boxed sets include this season’s must-have accessory for men, a matching pocket square which is generously sized at 34cm x 34cm with a hand rolled hem. 

Taking cue from the natural environment that is the artists home, designs span versatile earthy neutral and vibrant reef inspired colour palettes in five unique and authentic artworks – two from NAIDOC Artist of the Year, Elverina Johnson from Yarrabah (Seahorses and Mangrove Life) and three from renowned Queensland artist, Justin Butler (Snake Tracks, Protective Shield and Falling Leaves).

Mainie’s bow tie and pocket square sets retail for $100 each while the neck tie and pocket square sets retail for $110 each

Mainie’s pure silk neck ties are generously sized at 34cm x34cm with a hand rolled hem.

All designs feature a matching ladies silk twill or silk chiffon scarf.

Mainie is an Aboriginal owned, ethical, fair-trade brand.  Royalties from each sale are returned to the Warlpiri artists of the Tanami Desert in Central Australia and Dirringhi Arts in Yarrabah, Tropical North Queensland.
