The master craftswomen of Anindilyakwa Arts bring their bush dying and weaving knowledge to a new range of gorgeous homewares. Stunning lampshades, bed linen, giant ghost net laundry baskets, upholstered home decor and accessories bring the botanical DNA and spirit of Groote Eylandt direct to the home.

"We are sharing our world. When you sit in that bush dye chair or sleep in the blanket, even if you have never been to our island, you can feel something. The spirit from the old people. You can learn about our culture." Vera Lalara, Anindilyakwa artist.
