Mumpreneur Kristy connected with Starwin in 2015 when our family and business was growing. Kristy was based in the top end, crafting organic clothing by hand, with a passion to support local mums and their little ones. As her family grew, she relocated, but stays connected and uses icons of the tropical north to create a collection of gifts made with kindness.
Today Kristy shares her story for creating change with us.
How would you describe ways that you give back / pay it forward in our community?
Boab Bub is excited to have been recently invited to sell our range of organic baby clothing through Starwin in Port Douglas, as well as Darwin. We are committed to financially supporting the organisation Half Cut, who raise funds for forest conservation, including purchasing sections of the Daintree Lower Rainforest to be included in the Daintree National Park/World Heritage Agreement and managed by the Traditional Owners, the Kuku Yalanji people.
What is your one-of-a-kindness story?
Boab Bub grew as my belly did! After leaving work behind in the Indigenous arts industry, I was keen to use my own creative energy to create a range of sustainable, natural baby clothes. Inspired by the beautiful, bulging Boab trees in Western Australia's Kimberley region, I created a single Boab linocut design that became my logo and my first hand printed organic baby singlet. Since then, Boab Bub has grown from hand printed organic baby clothing to handmade organic lovelies made from my own original design organic fabrics. Love of organic, locally made, handcrafted and original designs. It's all about the love!
Can you share with us a story of how you care for country?
Boab Bub is committed to using the highest quality sustainably and ethically sourced natural fabrics and materials, including GOTs Certified Organic Cotton, bamboo and Australian hemp. Our clothing is free from harmful chemicals all the way from the farming process to the finished product. We care about creating natural baby clothing that is gentle on the skin and kind to Mother earth.
