Our Initiatives

As a way of helping our yarta (country) and native wildlife, we're donating 5% of each product sold to different environmental and wildllfe causes each 3 months!

Our shipping is also 100% Carbon Neutral, and our mail bags are made from 30% plant based and 70% Certified Compostable materials.

So shop guilt free, knowing you're making a positive impact on our planet.

A Little About Us

Welcome to Mardlaapa Designs, a surf-inspired fashion brand that blends Aboriginal artwork with modern designs. Founded in late 2021 by Temaana Sanderson-Bromley, our brand embodies the spirit of adventure, creativity, and sustainability as well as respect for the land and the people who call it home.

Temaana is a young Adnyamathanha, Narungga and Wangkangurru Yarluyandi man from the Flinders Ranges, Yorke Peninsula and Simpson Desert. 

As the sole designer of our garments, Temaana infuses each piece with a unique blend of surf culture and Aboriginal art. Our designs are inspired and reflect the natural beauty of the yarta (land) from the sea to the desert, and the rich culture of the Aboriginal people.

At Mardlaapa Designs, we are committed to promoting
sustainability and ethical practices throughout our supply chain. We use
high-quality materials that are eco-friendly and socially responsible. Our
garments are either printed in house or by an Australian screen-printing

For each product sold, we donate 5% of the profits to a different environmental and wildlife cause each 3 months. Our goal is to sell clothing that people enjoy wearing as well as helping the environment simultaneously.

Whether you're catching waves or just catching some sun, our clothing is designed to keep you comfortable, stylish, and connected to the natural world around you. We are proud to be an Aboriginal owned and operated business and respect the lands the we work on, the lands of the Kaurna people. We look forward to sharing our love of fashion and art with you.

Warndu watya (thankyou) for choosing Mardlaapa Designs,
and we hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy creating them for you.
