About Yapa Mali


Yapa Mali is a collection of my Cultural designs and prints as wearable art. The prints depict stories of my Country as well as reflecting the importance of storytelling through art. 

We want encouraging the presence of our Culture through fashion. Each garment includes a story of the artwork and Country it originates from, creating a teaching moment for the wearer. With the exchange of knowledge though art we hope to build a better understanding on Culture and contribute to reconciliation and decolonizing the fashion industry. 

We want to uphold Cultural values by ultimately protecting and caring for Mother. We don't want to contribute to fast fashion or over production, that actively hurts Country. We strive to avoid this by producing suitable and high-quality garments that can be worn over and over again to limit waste.
