About Us

Desert Gem showcases the many features of Aboriginal design philosophy, which is derived from the foundations of Aboriginal knowledge and history. Creating a diversity of highly valued contemporary designs. 

The business is 100% Aboriginal owned family business. Their selection of products are authentically made and designed in Australia.

Many of Desert Gem’s creative artwork ideas and colours originate from the visual and personal experiences captured from Vattessa’s family connections to country and richness of Aboriginal people and culture.

Wherever the business is represented it is highly respectful of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage from which we draw inspiration from.

Respect | Compassion | Empathy
