DescriptionOur Vortex shirts are designed by Aussies to meet the needs of Aussie workers – and now they come with even more Aussie!
Maxcool is proud to support Indigenous Australians everywhere, and are pleased to present a new line of designs in our Custom Editions range featuring original artwork by Indigenous Australians.
Why Indigenous Art?
Maxcool is a proudly Australian company, and so we're excited to work with Indigenous Artists to bring their unique style and heritage to our line of custom-printed workwear. We then work with them to turn the raw artwork into the patterns that make our Indigenous Art Editions so striking while preserving all the features of our best-selling Vortex workwear.
