Purchasing items made from hand-printed fabric supports Aboriginal artists (who get a royalty) and also creates a livelihood for the printers and sewers.
Please note that each cushion is unique and the placement of the design is different and wonderful on each item. The fabric was made into cushion covers by Mrs Pichreay our fair trade partner in Cambodia.

Maxine Charlie is a Yawuru and Bunuba artist based in Broome. She is inspired by the connection and cultural significance between the bundurr-bundurr (pindan land) and the nagula (sea) country.

Linygurra shows the patterns on the skin of the crocodile. Maxine explains that crocodiles are a relatively new visitor to her home town and they continue to move further and further south in their travels. She is passionate about crocodile education and making people more aware and respectful of their presence.

Art Centre: Nagula Jarndu

Yawuru Jarndu Aboriginal Corporation – trading as Nagula Jarndu (Saltwater Woman) is a Not for Profit incorporated body with a membership of 70 Indigenous women and is governed by 8 Yawuru women Directors.
Yawuru Jarndu first started operating in 1987 when it was established as an Indigenous women’s resource centre by Yawuru women, with the aim of recording oral history and preserving Yawuru language and culture.

The organisation evolved into an arts and textiles business, offering training in screen printing and dressmaking, producing fabrics for clothing and home wares, designed and made by local Indigenous artists. A retail outlet was established in 1998 called Nagula Jarndu Designs which proved a successful venture.

Fabric lengths can be purchased from the art centre website: https://www.nagulajarndu.com.au/shop/
