About Antola Trading
The name Antola Trading is a culmination of the two most influential women in my life; my mother, Antonia, and my grandmother, Nola.
They both grew up on family sheep and cattle properties in Queensland, and they both chose to raise their own children in the same way. Though there were (and still are!) many limitations when living in the harsh rural and remote areas of Australia, they never compromised on their sense of style and femininity. Because of this, I grew up expressing myself through what I wore, but I was always limited by the standard blue, green, pink and red work shirts that bore a striking resemblance to my brother’s. They didn’t quite fill me with excitement each morning, so I began my quest to create a fashionable solution, and Antola Trading was born.
As a commitment to the amazing women that live and work in my community, I have named each shirt after the property on which they live or grew up on because they represent what Antola Trading is all about. I hope that by bringing these shirts into your daily workwear wardrobe, it reminds you of the close community of strong and vibrant women you are a part of.

Antola Trading is authentic, empowering and reliable, because life is busy enough on the land without having to worry about your wardrobe. Antola Trading shirts have been designed for long days in the sun, and they're ready for any hard work you do while you're wearing them.
Antola Trading was born from the belief that women in the Australian outdoor industries deserve more than the lackluster designs of the standard work shirts currently available on the market. While we still love a good check-print or a striped combo, we believe that the style of your work shouldn’t determine your wardrobe options, which is why we design with personality, bright prints and detailed designs.
We source our tough textiles from all over the world and make them available to you online, so you can shop when it suits you at any time of the day. Our high quality 100% cotton shirts have been tried and tested in tough conditions. Our affordable prices also mean you can mix and match your work wardrobe with your weekend wardrobe easily, knowing you’ll never have to compromise on quality or style.
