WHO WE BE
Radiating with positive vibrations, Territory Six is the homeland of self-expression for free-spirited souls. It is your ultimate destination for unique and sustainable artistic designs; an Afro-Caribbean style fusion of creations made with madras (the fabric of the Caribbean) and fabrics from the motherland such as ankara, kente, and batiks. Each design is deliberately made in limited quantities to encourage individuality for all our confident and enlightened beings setting their own limits and trends.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, textile waste accounts for 5% of all landfill space. We at Territory Six aim to reduce our textile waste contribution by making most of our items to order and creating something unique and stunning with every square inch of textile as possible. We love and embrace the challenge!

MEET THE CREATOR
Inspired by what is and what isn't, past, present, and future....
I "Auraah" Merlissa Thomas has always been intrigued by the creative process. How something can go from mind to actual from pieces to a whole... What can be more gratifying than giving birth to what once was a dream?
I was born and raised in the US Virgin Islands on the beautiful island of St. Croix with lots of culture and black pride. It is because of this, I have grown to love the native fabrics of my Caribbean and the African diaspora such as madras, kente, batiks, and ankara. I am also drawn to the natural elements of land and sea including shells, gems, and semiprecious stones.
The Arts Institute of California-San Diego is where I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to attend and sharpen my creative skills. This is where I learned essential design skills such as patternmaking, color theory, screen-printing, surface designs, CAD/essential design programs, etc.
I am extremely grateful to be able to share my passion with you
and hope that you are inspired to follow me along my creative journey.
Love & Light
