Created by First Nations artist and storyteller Maria Watson-Trudgett, a Wiradjuri woman.
Bila and Ngurambang, are words from Wiradjuri language, meaning river and country. Wiradjuri people, also known as river people, were skilled hunter–fisher–gatherers, who lived and... moved along the rivers and surrounding landscape, sourcing food for survival and Caring for Country. For tens of thousands of years, First Nations people have managed their land and its inhabitants to ensure environmental harmony and sustainability. Keeping balance in the environment is central to our people’s way of thinking, being, and connection to spiritual and cultural identity.
The impacts of climate change are exacerbating our ability to protect and maintain significant biodiversity across Australia and the globe. Biodiversity is everyone’s responsibility. It is crucial to broaden our awareness, compassion, and respect to embrace all living creatures and the natural environment. Biodiversity will not be maintained through inaction - Stand with First Nations people to Care for Country.

Great styles colours and quality
Nice bright colours. Love the shirt. Quick delivery.
This shirt has been my favourite for many years and finally it was rereleased and I bought another one ( Should have got two). This shirt has started more conversations than any of my 20 other indigenous themed shirts. Great product and equal quality in production. Reminds people that the indigenous First Nations peoples are the heart of this great nation and that they wear their heart on their sleeves and with hand on their heart they will continue to fight for it and embrace all the good that has come despite the sadness brutality and sorrows. A chest pocket would make it the “perfect” shirt and a pen slot on the sleeve shoulder as well please.
I've had so many compliments on my shirt! Now others at work have bought the same. Fits great! Quick turnaround too.
We were delighted with the quick turnaround of our order and the great follow up from Life Apparel Co regarding an additional (backorder) of our shirts. Our team can't wait to wear the great shirts as our sailing team shirt for the 2023/2024 sailing season. We love the product and quality of the shirts.
