Bandicute Aussie clothes kids love   - supporting KIWN

Print of the Month.jpg

Bandicute is a proud supporter of the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Network with their July 2021 Pygmy Possum Print of the Month release.


Bandicute is the brainchild of mother and daughter team Ellen & Jess from rural NSW. Having identified a gap in the market they decided to make a range of baby and kids unisex modern  clothing featuring colourful designs of Australian animals.  

“ One of our greatest pleasures is being able to donate and support others - It is our privilege to work with our charity partners to help make a difference. “

$2 from each Pygmy Possum Print of the Month item purchased was  donated to KIWN. 

It looks like they still have some Organic Pygmy Possum Tea Towels available..

Australia-wide Shipping is free for orders over $120,

otherwise a flat rate of $7 per order applies.

KIWN is pleased to announce that we have recently purchased a parcel of land on the Dudley Peninsula, on the eastern end of Kangaroo Island with the intention of protecting and preserving the flora and fauna of the area. The decision to purchase this parcel of land was based largely on its position relative to other conservation areas and its high ecological values. To read Dr Richard Glatz's report click here.
