CHAINSTITCH RUGS

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 have a non-slip backing and a sleeve for hanging rod.

 

ARTIST: Isaih Nagurrgurrba

 

Namarnkol, barramundi, is an important fish for us Bininj. Barramundi are found in the ocean, in floodwaters, and in fresh water billabongs, rivers and creeks. In the old days people use to spear them with djalakirradj (three-pronged fish spears) and walabi (tradtional triangular nets). Nowadays, we catch them with fishing lines and modern nets. Barramundi are most easily caught from the end of the monsoon (March-April) until the humid build up season (October-November). There are Barramundi dreaming sites in lots of clan countries where the ancestral Barramundi placed itself as a dreaming. Men and Women will say "My dreaming is Barramundi, it placed itself in my country"
