Bima Wear has been operating for fifty (50) years. The only Tiwi women’s creative enterprise based in Wurrumiyanga (Nguiu), Bathurst Island, Tiwi Islands off the northern coast of Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia. Back in 1969 we created our own clothing label Bima Wear.
Tiwi women proudly own and operate Bima Wear. We design, print and make everyday, occasion and ceremonial wear that celebrates our distinct language and culture.
Bima Wear fabrics feature traditional symbols, structures, family and environmental representations that are central to Tiwi culture.
