Business Headline : Australian Aboriginal Designs - Huge Range of Apparel, Souvenirs & Art etc

Price : $600,000

Category : Import/Export/Whole, Retail, Wholesale, Clothing/Accessories

This famous Australian Company was founded over thirty-five years ago. The name means\" the universe\" and originates from the Tjapukai people of Kuranda far North Queensland.

The owners found a niche in the market place for good quality artistic souvenirs unique to Australia. \"Australian Aboriginal Art\" is so beautiful, so unique and so recognisable as Australian.

The owners ventured into the outback communities to discuss the possibility of licensing some Aboriginal Art to reproduce onto commercial products, for which the company would offer a royalty payment directly to the artists and the communities.

  • The company first established Licence Agreements and Assignment of Copyright Agreements so as to do the right thing by Aboriginal Communities and Artists.

  • The business initially produced a number of unique designs on adult t-shirts, kids t-shirts and later sweat shirts.

  • Today, thirty-five years later, the companies Authentic Aboriginal Art ranges consist of clothing, art panels, bags, homewares, men’s ties, bandanas, ladies scarves, sarongs, bags, coasters, fabrics, travel goods etc.

  • The invaluable accumulation of assets to the company over the past thirty-five years is of contractual agreements and assignments of copyright agreements, for the  library of artworks, colour separations and paintings.

  • To achieve economies of scale the company subcontract out all the manufacturing in Australia and simply act as a warehouse distribution centre.

  • Being a distribution centre this enabled expenses and staff wages to be kept to a minimum.


The business supplies Airport Duty Free Stores, Art Galleries, Gift Shops, Aboriginal Cultural Centres, Austrade, Tourism Australia and many other corporate companies and exports around the world.

All of the products are sold with a swing ticket displaying the design name, the artists name and a storyline about the design. Also the “Australian Made” green and gold triangle label is attached to 95% of products. The measurements displayed on the packaging of the Homewares range, is in both inches and centimetres to cater for the Americans, European and Asian markets.

This Company was the first Australian Company to exhibit at the Frankfurt International Trade Show in Germany (6,000 exhibitors) in the early eighties. The business presented to the world for the first time commercially produced Authentic Aboriginal Art products and Music while an Aboriginal Artist painted and played the Didgeridoo

Over the past three decades the business has attended and exhibited at trade shows in the United States at Las Vegas and Houston Texas, in Milan Italy, Manchester England, Tokyo Japan, Paris France, Madrid Spain and Seoul Korea and of course participated in Australian trade shows in both Melbourne and Sydney.


For developing further export business there are export grants that the government will supply for this purpose only. These grants are available on application and are most constructive and beneficial. 

Online Potential

The business has an online “retail store” and because the business is vertically integrated from manufacturing to retail in this instance the profit margins are enormous ranging from 340% – 456%.

This onlinestore has the potential (with very little investment) to be enormous if extended to Facebook, Ebay and other social media outlets.

New lease available.
