100% Silk Habotai gift wrapping.
WERRKNO: IN THIS SKIN was exhibited at Laundry Gallery earlier this year. An exploration of cultural narratives and the details of ancestral beings, through the lens of bodies and skin. Werrkno is the Kuninjku word for skin/scales/bark/husks, and each of the female artists depicted Werrkno from her own cultural perspective and lens.
The works have been printed in Melbourne on 100% Silk Habotai as our gift wrapping for this season. There are two prints available as an addition to your purchase.

Carol is an incredibly skilled Kune weaver and Lino printer. Born on a remote cattle station, near Bulmun community, where her mother was working at the time, she was taught how to weave baskets and dilly bags, and collect the natural fibres from the bush. This also provided her a strong knowledge of Arnhem Land plants and native wild foods. She is a wealth of information on this topic. Carol now lives with her family on the remote homeland of Buluhkaduru. Carol previously worked as a remote homelands supervisor, managing the Buluhkaduru women’s center.
