Shorts: Thermal Clay (Kambar)


***This is just the shorts

Fabric story: "Kambar" Thermal Clay

On our Ewamian country we have numerous hot thermal pools connected in underground channels. These pools of water are boiling hot and our ancestors not only utilised them to cook meat but heated up the basalt volcanic rock for hot stone healing. These springs have many medicinal properties and produce a white clay like powder when mixed with water. We also use our "Kambar" - Thermal Clay to paint up for ceremonies and significant cultural moments.

Garment Construction

All pieces are crafted and developed locally in Cairns by Cindy Hudson head seamstress (Jedess’ Mother). This allows Cindy and Jedess to ensure that each piece has high-quality workmanship.


Fabric selection – Tencel Linen. Sourced from an Australian fabric printer and supplier. 

Impact - Tencel is a cellulose fibre made from wood pulp (which comes from sustainably grown forests), and because it is derived from a plant it is biodegradable. 
It is less susceptible to odorous bacteria and is 50% more absorbent than cotton due to being breathable. The production process of this fabric has passed OEKO-TEX® certification.
