What does Muka mean?
We pay our respects and acknowledge the past and present caretakers of the lands in which we source our treasures.
It is estimated that there were a total of 8 - 12 different languages spoken in Tasmania at the time of British settlement. Palawa Kani is the only spoken Indigenous language in Lutruwita (Tasmania) today.
'Muka' is Palawa Kani for 'sea'. Our name being 'Sea Riches'.
About the Maker!
Ebonie is the founder behind Muka Riches.
“From a young age, I had always found the inner side of abalone shells very beautiful. I had seen them scattered in people's gardens, used as ash trays (!!), and launched off of the local jetty. I had always wondered if the whole shell held as much beauty underneath as its weathered top.
Having been under the water a bit more with my partner of late, we love to eat abalone. I thought it to be such waste to discard the shells, and wanted to scrub them up for a decor piece within our home.
I posted a photo to my personal Instagram page, and was overwhelmed with how much everyone loved the finished product!
It became evident that I needed to share these little beauties with you all.
I am very fortunate for the life I live, and to be able to access such treasures. I have enjoyed every step of the process thus far.
Being a personal trainer, this additional piece on the side has allowed me to find some balance, and do more of what I enjoy.
So where to next? ...Who knows! But for now;
Catch - Eat - Recycle”
Note: Due to the organic Nature of the Abalone shell each pair will vary slightly in colour and shape, this is the beauty of a natural organic sea shell and is not a fault.
