Fabric: printed cotton (front) and unprinted cotton (back)
Color: the base cloth is dark blue and the inks are caramel and cream. The back of the cushion is black.
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.

Diving is an activity that continues today and is a source of inspiration for some artists particularly the women. Ellarose Savage discusses her first-hand
experience. ‘My inspiration is mainly based on my father’s diving history. He has been a pearl diver and trochus. Myself and my two sisters we have been diving with our father. The reef
inspires me.’ (Hamby, Kirk 2016)
