Fabric Story

A keen observer of animals, Joe has created this playful design of mayhmayh – the Kunwinjku word for ‘many different birds/animals’. The various birds featured in his design include pigeons, kookaburras, magpie geese, corellas, parrots and black cockatoos – all live in west Arnhem Land.
These birds can be seen and heard throughout the day around Gunbalanya but are noisiest and most spectacular at dusk and dawn, commonly flying in flocks across the sky.
The large billabongs and flood plains near Gunbalanya community are a paradise for bird life where thousands of birds eat, play and live. Joe has also painted the different foods the birds feed on during the year. If you look closely you can see fish, rock lizards, rats, echidna, termites, fruit, insects and plants.

Joe is a member of Injalak Arts, an Aboriginal owned art centre in Gunbalanya (Oenpelli) in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Flying Fox Fabrics Jules satchels are made by A.N.D artisandesigner Fair Trade, our partner based in Cambodia.

Please note that every bag is unique, and the placement of the fabric design is different on each item.
