Bread bag | Tampe | Navy on Organic Cotton | Tangentyere Artists

Keep bread fresh in this boldly designed bread bag. Tampe is the Central/Eastern Arrente way of spelling ?Damper? and pronounced the same way. Tampe is a homemade bread cooked over the fire, often served fresh and warm with butter and strawberry jam.

The bread bag design is by Tim McNamara and the text is by Phyllis Stevens of Ewyenper Atwatye (Hidden Valley). Tim says of his design ?Tampe was made by native Aboriginal stockmans, we do tampe sometimes. Probably tomorrow when we go out bush.?
