MiTribe.shop is the creative outlet for Fiona Harper’s images captured fromt travels around the globe.

Fiona’s images are printed onto custom-designed leggings, activewear, shoes and homewares with unique designs not available anywhere else.

Additionally. Fiona creates customised designs for corporate gifts or giveaway for business operators and sporting clubs.


Each product is crafted with heart along with a desire for creating something unique and individual. These designs capture elements of destinations around the world which inspired creativity.


Product notes include the inspiration behind each individual design. We don’t sell the cheapest leggings. What we sell is individual, bespoke products that you can’t buy anywhere else. I hope you’ll agree it’s worth paying for a unique custom-designed piece that stands out from the crowd.

By supporting a creative artist you are helping to make the world a more beautiful place for us all to play in.


Travel Boating Lifestyle, twice a finalist in the Australian Society of Travel Writers’ Awards for Excellence, an online magazine to inspire and an influential travel website where I write and publish the stories that I really want to write. The ones told with personality, soul and passion. The one’s that don’t make it into conventional media because they’re too quirky, off-beat or simply good fun!


Maybe they’re just a little bit off the wall or perhaps they’re not ‘commercial’ enough to entice advertiser support. Pop over to Travel Boating Lifestyle and have a look. But before you do, slip into something comfortable (or strap on something sharp and pointy, whatever floats your boat, I don’t care), pour yourself a sassy drink, top it with an umbrella then enjoy some fun travel adventures on Travel Boating Lifestyle.
