The ‘We Are Kin’ Co-ord is the realised vision of a collaboration between Queensland designers; Jacky Stickler, founder of sticks + stone & Lauren Malone, textile designer of The Indigo Room.

Who's behind The Indigo Room?
Lauren’s work brings a smile to the face and a dance in the heart. Known for her signature bold, vibrant, storytelling prints, she pays homage to her tropical north Queensland roots. With a background in Interior Decoration, she honed her textile design skills at Australia’s leading print design studio, Longina Phillips Designs and Melbourne’s Kangan Institute. Lauren is the founder of boutique textile print design studio The Indigo Room, where she creates irresistible bespoke treasured art pieces for local fashion and homewares labels.
The bespoke hand painted textile print illustrates each heart & soul involved in the creative development of the Co-ord. The feature motifs take the curious fashion lover on an in-depth journey of discovery as to how their clothes were crafted. Each hand painted element represents an artisans role in the process. From the farmer who harvested the Organic Cotton, to the designer who sketched the silhouette & the seamstress who sewed each stitch. Set against a rich background of water ripples, demonstrating how even small changes made consciously, can have a big impact. All the while, highlighting the fashion lover as the catalyst of this process, creating a ripple effect of positive change.
The “We Are Kin” textile print was printed to order on GOTS certified cotton sateen, using 100% non-toxic biodegradable inks. Careful consideration was taken to select a digital printer which maintains ethical and environmentally conscious workplace practices, including eliminating energy and water consuming steps in the printing process, as well as up-cycling any fabric that doesn’t meet their high quality standards for industrial applications.
