ABOUT THE ARTWORK:

This artwork depicts Marebu, woven pandanus mats, which Deborah often weaves for the Maningrida Arts and Culture Centre, the sister Art Centre to Bábbarra Women’s Centre in Maningrida.
When creating mats, artists commonly use a mix of naturally dyed and undyed fibre to create a striking variation of coloured bands. Some artists also incorporate different techniques of looping and plaiting to produce various patterns and textured finishes.
The Bábbarra Women’s Centre in Arnhem Land is governed by women, for women, to enable future enterprises that support healthy and sustainable livelihoods. Initially started as a safe space for women, Bábbarra now designs and hand-prints textiles that are sold around the world.
Bábbarra and Kip&Co divide all profits from the collaboration equally, so 50% of profits will return to the Bábbarra Women’s Centre.
