Cushion Cover | Wool 40cm | Jeannie a Uluru | black, white and maroon

Jeannie's story is about the seven sisters who created land forms during the dreamtime. They camped in many paces all over Australia, running away from a man called wati (initiated man) Nyiru. Nyiru was in love with the eldest sister and kept chasing the sisters. Nyiru and the sisters created landforms and sacred sights across Australia. Each language group has different chapters of the same story, and different sights and landmarks made by Nyiru and the sisters. Eventually the sisters fled to the milky way where they can still be seen. The sisters are now the Pleiades and Nyiru is Orion, he is never going to catch them now.

These beautiful, unique textiles are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Chain stitched, using hand dyed wool, each is a completely handmade piece.
