In this section I have created space specifically dedicated to the amazingly varied textiles that are representative of this small but distinctive area. Over 140,000 people reside in an area appx. 70km x 70km. It is essentially a limestone uplift from the Australian plate which makes for very poor soil and the household incomes are supplemented through textiles whilst reaffirming a sense of cultural integrity.
Although many women no longer weave the talent is still there so long as we stimulate the appreciation of the wider community in these heartfelt textiles we will encourage this tradition to continue.
