Pop Rock Park x Letitia Linke Foundation

Our absolute fave arm candy brand Pop Rock Park has released a limited edition bracelet stack that we love oh-so-very-much, with all the profits from sales of the stack going to the Letitia Linke Research Foundation for Ovarian Cancer.

The Letitia Stack

Classic and stylish with a pop of fun, just like the woman it was named after: Letitia Linke – a talented and gorgeous warrior who sadly lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer in 2018.

Founder of Pop Rock Park and friend of the late Letitia Linke, Kimberlee Brown said,

“Teesh would get such a kick out of having a bracelet stack named after her. She had exquisite taste and was a gifted interior decorator, based in country South Australia. The black and white stripes in the bracelets pay homage to her classic style, and the dash of pink is a tribute to her signature pink lippy.

“Letitia and I first met at school, and then reconnected years later thanks to the fabulous interior decorating blogging community that existed pre Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Remember those days? She championed other small businesses and side hustles, and her support for my little businesses will never be forgotten.”

The Letitia Linke Foundation

Letitia was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 34. She and her husband Paul had built their dream home on the farm where they raised their two young boys and she ran a successful interior decorating business, The White Shed. Her quintessential black and white classic styling was effortless and timeless and she built a cult following on the Yorke Peninsula, and beyond.

As she fought her battle against Ovarian Cancer, Letitia campaigned fiercely to educate women about the disease, and raise funds for much needed research. There is no early detection test for this Cancer that provides women only a 47% chance of living five years after diagnosis.

Teesh sadly lost her battle in August 2018, aged 38. But her efforts to put the spotlight on Ovarian Cancer have not been in vain. The Letitia Linke Research Foundation passionately continues her work to raise awareness and funds for research into an early detection test and the development of more directed and personalised treatment for women with ovarian cancer.

All profits from the sale of this bracelet stack will go to the Letitia Linke Research Foundation.

Ocean Tales | Kids’ swimwear for fun in the sun

The sun is shining, the ocean is calling and it’s time for new season swimwear!

As parents we know that all swimwear is not created equal. Yes, we love our little ones looking stylish in the surf but kids swimwear is about so much more than that. We want sun smart swimmers, with great coverage, chlorine resistant fabrics, exclusive prints and….say it with me now…no saggy bums!

Introducing Ocean Tales

That’s where Ocean Tales comes sweeping in with the Northerly offshore breeze—children’s swimwear label, by Aussie gal Nicole Bower and her Mum, Cathy and Aunty, Karen.

The family-operated business came to fruition during a holiday and now includes an exclusive curation of hand-created designs for girls and boys aged from one through to 10.

“We had this grand idea whilst standing in the ocean at our favourite beach in South West Rocks,” Nicole tells us “We wanted more for Mums and bubs. Miniature swimwear with stylish prints that everyone would love. Better quality fabrics that withstood harsh Aussie elements. Comfortable features for your little ones. AND swimwear that was ethically manufactured.”

And the team at Ocean Tales sure do pour love and passion into every garment, creating and crafting to perfection.

Kids Cossies, Consciously created

Designed in Australia by Nicole herself, each of the high quality and super fun prints is guaranteed to draw smiles and hours of playtime for the little people – whether by the pool or down at the beach!

The colourful and playful collection includes, surfsuits, hats, rashies, cute cossies for your mini man and bright bikinis for your little lady; all the ingredients for fun in the sun!

Ocean Tales is renowned for:

  • Sun-smart features (SPF 50+) – long sleeves, double lined fabric, secure and strong zippers
  • Exclusive prints – designed in Australia and ethically manufactured
  • Perfect fit, great coverage and no saggy bums
  • Chlorine resistant fabrics
  • Super soft and comfy to wear
  • Lined in all the places it matters

Emro Designs: Indigenous Artists Bringing Traditional Stories to Early Learning

Emro Designs is an 100% Aboriginal owned & operated business helping to bring traditional stories to early learning and homes around the country. Each of the designs are awash with rich colour and beautiful patterns. 

Emro Designs was founded in 2019 by proud Minjungbal/Bundjalung woman, Emma Rolls. The collection includes rugs, cushion covers, recycled outdoor mats and stunning picnic rugs.

Early Education Resources

Emma’s passion to start her own business came from seeing the under-representation of Indigenous owned business within the Early Education Resources sector, and from a passion to be able to share local Indigenous artists work and incorporate more authentic Indigenous resources into Early Education.

“It came about quite organically. I was having conversations with people in the early learning industry, going into day-care with my boys,” she said. 

“I recognised that there was a gap, and knew that within Early Learning, storytelling took place on the carpet, or rugs. I thought how amazing would it be to have these beautiful artworks as rugs that serve as an educational piece also, and help share our culture” 

Her hope is that these pieces serve as a talking point for those that purchase their items & help to shine a light on our rich culture & stories. When a product is purchased, Emma includes a laminated card which details information about the artist and tells the story of the artwork.  

Generations Rug

This beautiful & colourful “Generations” design is by Bundjalung artist Zoey Hart.

“This artwork depicts our Jarjums (Children) and the bright futures they have. This rug is perfect for creating comfortable and welcoming play spaces or reading areas.”

Perfect for play-based learning, and for children to engage, connect to the stories & in turn spark conversation!

‘Djurebil’ – ‘Sacred Place’

This stunning artwork is by Bundjalung artist Holly Sanders.

“This artwork acknowledges the traditional owners of this land, sea and sky. It pays respect to our Elders of the past and present for their strength, knowledge and leadership, and to our jarjum’s (children) who are our future Elders.

The patterns and meeting place symbols throughout represent gatherings, sandhills and Country, symbolising our ongoing connection to the land and ocean. We have thrived and lived sustainably with the land we now call Australia for more than 60 000 years. The warm natural colours represent the sand, ochre and colours of the Country. We are the ancient people of this land – we respect and listen to the land, our elders and the ancient spirits – our ancestors have walked this sacred country for millennia and continue to live on in the land, water and the sky. This connection and relationship to Country continues to remain strong today.”

Dancing on Country

This beautiful striking design titled Dancing on Country is by Kamara Morgan a proud Yorta-Yorta, Gunai-Kurnai and Dja Dja Wurrung Aboriginal Artist specialising in contemporary Aboriginal Art.

“This painting represents the men and the women telling and passing on their traditional stories through dancing. The lines represent the body paint worn in ceremony.”

Profit from each item sold goes directly back to the artists, to ensure a sustainable income for the artists and ensuring they can continue sharing their rich culture through their artwork.
