Woven Mats by Priscilla Badari, Katra Nganjmirra and Silvia Badari

The design depicts Marebu (woven mats) - valuable items traditionally made by women. Marebu had many uses, including: being worn, a surface to prepare food, rolling up and carrying children (particularly in the yekke cold season in June/July), a sleeping mat, and also various ceremonial uses. Priscilla Badari explains that people were originally inspired to make round mats by the shape of the moon.

This design was based on real examples of woven Pandanus spiralus marebu at Injalak Arts with all their variety of pattern and weaving techniques. It is a vibrant design that expresses the women’s love for their cultural heritage and their desire to extend it to new media.
