Our Ladies Blouse is a distinct take on the everyday corporate look. Lightweight with a relaxed fit and scooped hem, the blouse sits loose while forming a feminine, elegant drape.

For the style conscious, this Blouse is perfect for Autumn/Winter moods. It will impress at work or transition perfectly on a night out with skinny denim and boots.

Style: Ladies Blouse

Washing: Cold hand wash
Artist: Lani Balzan
Story: Gari Yala (Speak the truth) 

This painting represents a timeline of country: our motherland and the layers that represent it before colonisation, the change when colonisation happened, the present and the future.

The outside represents the beginning before colonisation where our culture remained untouched and our country remained sacred. Moving inwards to the next layer, this represents when colonisation happened and the alteration to the land and our people from this. The next layer represents the present, the fight we face for change, the importance of a Treaty, and voices coming together. The middle represents the future; it is the change we so deeply desire, the acknowledgement that we deserve and truth of our people and our culture.

Our people have been on this land for more than 65,000 years. There needs to be an understanding of country and of our people who are the oldest continuing culture on this planet. This is the only way to move forward for our future of this country.

Remembering that we are a multi-cultural Aboriginal country in 2019, we come from all different walks of life and all different decent lines as do I. Aboriginal people of this land have not always had an untold or untrue history voiced.  Our voices have not always been completely heard and this is continuing to happen. The true story of colonisation must be told, must be heard, and must be acknowledged!

The present: we are up in arms, we are fighting for country and still fight to be heard. Our voices are important! Without our voices, things cannot change for the future.

The future is to have our voices heard to have sovereignty, a Treaty to our land.  To come together and to understand the importance of our culture. Our culture is not something just for Aboriginal people to be proud of, but for all Australians to embrace the culture and our land we all live on.

Ngulingah Jagun is a great product

I ordered a size 18. Is a flowy synthetic fabric that does not need ironing (awesome) similar to the material some business scarves and suit jackets are made from. Semi sheer (see through) which I personally like. No noticeable issues I often get e.g. itchiness or tight areas in arms and waistline. Was not too tight or too loose, a comfortable and forgiving fit. Long line hem for tall ones means it can be worn with leggings or low waisted pants easily, and bent over in without flashing. Gorgeous colours, true to picture. Looks great with tanned and darker skin, and mauve pants for some reason. Very aesthetically pleasing and the artists work is very meaningful; teaching us about sustainability and connection to land and sea. Great conversation starter in the classroom. One con- The sleeves are about an inch too long, so I roll them up. I'm about 5'6 so if you also have shorter arms, be aware of this issue. I love this shirt, and everyone comments how nice it is because it just shows an artwork, no logos or interruptions on the fabric. Just a beautiful and stylish garment. Would buy one in every print if I could! Ngalingah Jagun is the nicest in my opinion.
