We have seen a tremendous increase in demand for Indigenous scrubs in Australia, which incorporate traditional designs, symbols, and colours to celebrate the deep history of Indigenous Australians.
These scrubs not only promote an awareness of cultural diversity and inclusivity in the healthcare industry, but they also offer a fantastic opportunity to support and promote Aboriginal-owned businesses and artists.
We'd like to showcase some of these beautiful and unique Indigenous-inspired and designed scrubs available at Simply Scrubs.

Water Dreaming Scrub Top
Limited Edition print by Indigenous artist, Lynette Nangala Singleton
Lynette Nangala Singleton grew up in Yuendumu, 290km northwest from Alice Springs. Her captivating artwork portrays Puyurru, a site west of Yuendumu with natural wells where Nangala/Nampijinpa women and Jangala/Jampijinpa men are the traditional owners.
Rainmakers sang in the rain and a storm travelled across the country from east to west, accompanied by a termite Dreaming. Lightning struck Wirnpa and Kanaralji and hills were formed at Ngamangama. The Dreaming also includes the children of the clouds Dreaming. Long pointy clouds were stuck into the ground at Jukajuka, now seen as rock formations.
Warlu Indigenous Scrub Top
Limited Edition design by Indigenous artist, Theo (Faye) Nangala Hudson
Theo, born in 1989 in Alice Springs, has been painting since the age of 13. Her unique style showcases a modern interpretation of her traditional culture. This limited-edition scrub top features Theo's 'Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming)' artwork, authenticated by Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation. The vibrant blue-and-green design is reminiscent of her original artworks and tells the story of two rainbow serpents who were ancestral heroes and lived as a couple in the Vaughan Springs.
