About TradeMutt and TIACS
TradeMutt is a social impact workwear brand, by tradies for tradies. They make funky eye catching work wear designed to start conversations about mental health among the blue collar community, helping make an invisible issue impossible to ignore.
This Is A Conversation Starter (TIACS) is the name of the not-for-profit mental health support service funded by TradeMutt. TIACS is a text and call service providing access to mental health clinicians in a free and easy to use way, helping to remove the physical and financial barriers that prevent so many Australians from reaching out for help when they need it. So far TradeMutt has funded 2536 hours of support, and they are just getting started!

About The Artist
Bobbi Lockyer is a proud Ngarluma, Kariyarra, Nyulnyul & Yawuru woman born and based on Kariyarra Country in Port Hedland. We met Bobbi at the 2021 AusMumpreneur Conference in Sydney where we were completely inspired by her story of bravery and being a solo mother to four amazing boys. Bobbi strives to create a better, more colourful world for her family and everyone else. She is influenced by stories of the past, colours of country, and her passion for community. Her artwork gives her a platform to fight the good fight as an activist for social justice and indigenous rights – including Birthing on Country.
Bobbi also uses social media to connect with her audience to help break down misconceptions associated with birth trauma and domestic violence as well as tackling the topics of racism in Australia. In 2021, Bobbi was named NAIDOC Artist of the Year won the highly-respected award, became a board member for Regional Arts WA and entered her second year as a creator for Nikon.
We are forever grateful for Bobbi’s generosity and support for this collaboration by donating the custom artwork design that tells a story of healing. We hope that Bobbi’s eye-catching design will spark supportive conversations about miscarriage and pregnancy loss between friends, family, and co-workers alike.
