FISH NET

This design by Kieren Karritpul depicts fish net traditionally used by the old women for collecting and catching fish and turtles from the billabongs and small creeks. The fish net is hand woven by the women from merrepen (sand palm) which is dyed in many colours from the roots, leaves and berries which the ladies collect, then hand spun into string. The fish net can take a long time to weave, making it a vital tool in supplying food and a treasured possession in generations past. 

Is your order in Stock?

IN STOCK
If your order is in stock it will be shipped to you using Australia post within 5 working days, arriving to you within 12 working days.
PRE-ORDER
If your purchase is on pre-order, it is being crafted by a chain of artisans with an 8 week lead time.
The organic and manual nature of the process endows each piece with its own distinct and beautiful imperfections. And while lead times may be long, they simply reflect and preserve the integrity of the production process: freight and logistics can be hindered by the elements, such as floods that cut off access to remote communities, wet-season humidity that prevents ink from drying, or cultural occasions and ceremonies during which artists do not work.

Shipping (1 or 2 cushions) Feather insert inclusive.
