Fabric Design: Seed Dreaming by Geraldine Napurrurla Langdon
“Nakamarra/Napurrurla women and Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men. The Jukurrpa is associated with a place called Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara is a species of Fimbristylis, a grass that bears edible seeds in the winter-time. The seeds are traditionally ground on a large stone (‘puturlu’) with a smaller stone (‘ngalikirri’) to make flour. This flour is mixed with water (‘ngapa’) to make small seed cakes. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. In paintings of this Jukurrpa large concentric circles are used to represent Jaralypari and dots surrounding these circles are often depicting the ‘ngurlu’.”
Flying Fox Fabrics makes these bags in partnership with social enterprises in Cambodia. The Serena bags are made by Kravan House. Kravan House trains, employs and supports disabled artisans and has been doing so since 2003 when founder Thanan Hok founded it.
Limited Edition: All our products are made in small batches as all the fabrics are handprinted in very limited quantities, sometimes no more than 2 metres.
Please note that each bag is unique and the placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.
