Collections

Hopefully you now know that Nura translates to country in The Sydney Language (you can read a little more about the meaning behind Nura in our blog The Journey To Nura).
So, for each Nura collection, our fabric prints are inspired by and celebrate our wonderful country, Australia. Our exclusive designs started their life as watercolour artworks created in collaboration with Australian artists and were then transformed in to a repeat print ready for textile production for our special Nura pieces.

The Australian Animal Collection

Nura’s second collection, released in June 2018, is inspired by our gorgeous Australian wildlife. Our exclusive prints for this collection were created in collaboration with Lollilu Studio.

The four prints available in this collection are The Platypus, The Kangaroo, The Cockatoo and The Freshwater Turtle.

ARTISTS

Shipra Shah

Artist of The Eucalypt and Banksia print


 

Shipra trained for 5 years at a premier art institute, has a Degree in Fine Arts and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

She has worked as a Visual Merchandiser and Set Designer for many years and has gained extensive experience in Store Planning and Graphic Art. Throughout this period, Shipra has continued her love for drawing and watercolor painting.

Over the years her works include detailed watercolor paintings, illustrations, participating and selling in several exhibitions and above all teaching watercolour and botanical art.

Her eye for detail and perseverance to translate it into her work has been consistent.

After moving to Australia a decade back, she lived in a beautiful townhouse and started painting the beautiful flora and fauna around her.

This, combined with her passion for watercolor painting, gave her the fuel to start her formal training after which she never looked back. Watercolour art is now her zeal and passion.

Mei Yong

Artist of The Lilly Pilly print

Mei is a Melbourne based freelance illustrator. She specialises in botanic art, beauty and fashion illustration. The art mediums Mei uses include watercolour, ink, gouache and coloured pencil. Mei loves English bulldogs, roller coasters and board games.

Mei has always loved art as far as she could remember. However, after finishing Year 12, she abandoned her paintbrushes to further her studies and career. 3 years ago, she decided to take a break from work and started painting again. A year later, she had her first gallery exhibition and all her artworks were sold! It was that very moment that made her realise that this could be the start of something bigger. And in 2015, Made on Sundays was founded, this was the best decision she had ever made.
