Chain-stitched kilims are a traditional rug/soft furnishings making technique from Kashmir. As people sat on the floor they were both homewares and decoration. As many artworks are painted on the ground or 3D surfaces/bodies most of the images do not have a set orientation so can also be hung portrait or landscape if preferred.

Artist: Rosie Nangala Flemming

About the design: Warlukurlangu
Rosie has depicted kurlkurra trees in her country, Warlukurlangu, south-west of Yuendumu. The trees are shown in flower. The country offers a big water soakage (Ngapa) and is a place of rest for Nampijinpa/Jampijinpa/Nangala/Jangala skin groups.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
Do not put place/use in direct sunlight or colors may fade. To clean – careful hand-wash in warm water using a wool detergent. Can be ironed on a wool setting.
