Shelby is a proud Wiradjuri woman, artist and creator of Marara Designs, and the designer of our Acknowledgement of Country. Marara Designs started as a way to combine Shelby’s love for creating art with her passion for helping others learn about her culture.  Growing her business has helped Shelby embed her culture into many homes and workspaces – including Sportsgirl.

We are honoured to have collaborated with Shelby to create a meaningful, intentional and sustainable Acknowledgement of Country that will be present in all 130+ Sportsgirl stores via a physical plaque and online. Our Acknowledgement of Country plaques are one of the many steps we are taking in our ongoing commitment to reconciliation. Learn more about our Acknowledgment of Country here.
