The fabric was hand printed at Palngun Wurnangat by local Aboriginal women. This wallet was made by Kravan House, one of our social enterprise partners in Cambodia, that has been employing, training and supporting disabled artisans since 2003.
Please note that each wallet is unique and placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.
Design: Echidna by artists Bridget Bunduck of Palngun Wurnangat (Wadeye Women) in the Northern Territory Australia and hand printed in Australia.
Bridget is a Tharnpa woman from Wadeye, and a self-taught artist. She has worked at Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation since 2009 and is an integral part of the design and production team. Bridget is the great-granddaughter of Nym Bunduck – one of Australia’s most significant bark painters – whose art is held in national collections including the National Gallery of Australia and NSW Art Gallery. Bridget’s designs are humorous and classic – based on stories and experiences from her country and her life. She has three children and loves fishing and picking pandanus to make dilly bags.
Design: “The echidna is one of the animals in my dreaming. There are lots of echidnas in Wadeye especially on the land around Air Force creek.”

Palngun Wurnangat means ‘women all together‘, or ‘all the women here‘ in Murrinhpatha – the main language spoken in the Thamarrurr region. The Thamarrurr region is approximately 380kms South-West of Darwin and extends from Daly River to the Western Australian border in the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf.
