'North Home' is a new homewares company that sells beautiful pieces designed by Aboriginal Australian artists. The company not only celebrates the craftsmanship of these artists, but it also donates the majority of its profits to indigenous communities in Australia.

North Home specializes in selling cushions and lampshades designed by Aboriginal Australian artists. Each of the pieces celebrates the skills of the indigenous artists and the diversity of their crafts. The goal is to help a wider audience view the work of these artists by making the prints widely available in the form of beautiful textiles.

In addition to showcasing the work of Aboriginal artists, the company also helps support indigenous communities. In fact, 70 percent of the profits are donated directly the Foundations for Young Australians' community youth program, which aims to empower the next generation of Aboriginal youth.
