Their designs are made with quality and longevity in mind. Every garment is made to be worn season after season, always embodying a timeless cruelty-free ethos.

With a global community, Unreal Fur is found in boutiques around the world, including major retailers Revolve, Free People, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue and Farfetch.

Two years ago, their search for an artist of Australia’s First Nations People led us to look inward to Unreal Fur’s values: art, inclusivity, and ethical design. Once we met Yankunytjatjara artist Linda Puna, and her renowned painting, Ngayuku Ngura (My Home), the connection was immediate. Living on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, Linda is an artist with a ground breaking perspective, filled with joy and resilience.

Linda was born in Mimili Community on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in the far northwest of South Australia. Her parents are Puna Yanima and Shannon Kantji.

As one of the founding members of Mimili Maku Arts, Linda began bringing her stories to the canvas in 2006. Her paintings often combine Tjukurpa and figurative depictions of everyday community life.

As the first Anangu woman to live in a remote community whilst being dependent on an electric wheelchair, Linda shares a unique perspective on life in her artwork – full of joy, resilience, and strength. She continues to be an important and outspoken advocate for disability rights on the APY Lands.

Linda often depicts elements of the rocky desert country surrounding Mimili, referencing the Maku (witchetty grub) Tjukurpa. Her paintings combine these songlines with more figurative depictions of day-to-day objects such as Toyota 4WD vehicles, houses, cardboard boxes, windmills and water tanks. Linda uses bold brush strokes and strong colours to bring to life the reality of remote community life in a fearlessly honest and playful way.
