As a small business, we're continually looking to find ways in which we stand out in the cluttered uniform apparel market. It's also incredibly important to us that we also support other small local business's. 

That's why Hunter Scrubs is incredibly proud to be partnering with Saretta Fielding to create beautiful indigenous patterned scrub tops and scrub caps.  

She is a truly inspiring indigenous female artist of the Wonnarua land.

Saretta is a Wonnarua woman of the Upper Hunter Valley through her grandmother and an Anaiwan women of the New England area through her grandfather.

Saretta’s work is inspired by her love and dedication to her culture, country and community.

“My desire is to share our unique and invaluable culture through authentic, engaging and thought evoking fine artwork and visual design that welcomes all and enhances connection to spirit and country.”

Many of Saretta’s artworks are reflective in style to many traditional sand engravings found throughout Wonnarua country and the Hunter Region and are connected to country in style and design through the use of a sand based medium and engraving technique.

Her passion exudes from her artwork and has been recognised with Ray-Ban Global Indigenous Wayfarers Award. Her art adorns the walls of many prominent spaces including John Hunter Hospital and Maitland Gallery.

Saretta gives back to her local community through her charity Malang Indigenous Corporation

A percentage of proceeds from the sale of each shirt goes back into the charity.

About the artwork

This vibrant sand engraved artwork depicts community connection on country, bringing an acknowledgement to traditional custodians across our Nation and celebrating our journey forward together. Central to the design, (4) connected gathering circles interwoven within pathways of traditional people symbols depicts going forward together around shared vision towards closing the gap for Indigenous people, through Education and Holistic Health.

Elders symbols within the design depict passing on of knowledge across the generations and brings a welcome to others to share in celebrating the world’s oldest rich and living culture.
