There’re but few things more satisfying than a good cup of hot tea. And to be able to acquire one-of-a-kind tea wares that are not only unique, but also celebrate a sustainable future, only makes teatime that much more rewarding.
Bursting with a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours, T2’s latest collaboration with award-winning artist Brooke Sutton includes teapots, tea-for-one sets, cups, saucers, mugs with infusers, as well as tea tins.
The proud Kalkadoon artist from Mount Isa in Northwest Queensland has used her signature approach to colour with reconciliation, education, and connection as core motifs to share her people’s stories, having won various art competitions ever since she started the tender age of eight.
Today, at eighteen years old, Brooke invites us to hold connection to community in the palm of our hands.
The first collection, Medicine Leaves, showcases Brooke’s interpretation of Mirrithin Kungala – which means “Bush Medicine” in the Kalkadoon language. The colourful set champions the healing properties of the land through native flora, fauna, and landscape. The flowers emblazoned on each piece represent the ingredients and natural Bush Medicine in each tea.
There’s also Healing Country, Brooke’s second colourful collection, which shares the story of T2’s commitment to the planet and its people. The range reflects Brooke’s interpretation of Yapatjarra Muu – “Healing Country” in the Kalkadoon language. The vibrant bees and dragonflies were chosen to represent T2’s hard work towards creating a sustainable future.
The T2 x Brooke Sutton collections are now available online and at both Singapore T2 stores.
