Aboriginal Art Handmade (6'x 4') Wool Rug (Chainstitched) (183cm x 122cm) - Bark Painting by Susan Wanji Wanji (Tiwi)
DISPATCHED DIRECTLY FROM SA WAREHOUSE
These beautiful, unique rugs are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Chain stitched, using hand dyed wool and finished with a heavy cotton backing, each rug is a completely handmade piece. This project is unusual because the rug is owned by the artists, rather than licensed to a third party. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists’ and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these rugs guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.
These rugs also have non-slip backing and a sleeve for hanging rod.
