This purse was made by Villageworks, our partner social enterprise that has been employing, training and supporting disabled artisans in Cambodia since 2001. In 2015 they became certified members of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). The fabric was hand printed at Tiwi Designs on Bathurst Island in the NT.
Limited Edition: All our products are made in small batches. Fabrics are handprinted in very limited quantities. We rarely take more than 2 metres of fabric for any order of multiple styles of product. This fabric was sourced around 30 years ago and has been in my fabric stash waiting to turn into something wonderful. Please note that each purse is unique and the placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.
Tiwi Design: has been printing textiles since the early 1980’s. The purpose built textile printing workshop is run by Osmond Kantilla, a master printer with over 20 years practical experience of printing textiles at Tiwi Design along with his assistant Alan Kerinauia. Tiwi Design currently has three 13 metre long tables which are used to hand silkscreen print the textiles, t-shirts and t-towels. We have a commercial oven in which to cook the fabric and set the water based inks.
