Our Woven Bangle by Louisa Bayne highlights traditional indigenous craftsmanship from Kakadu National Park, with intricate weaving techniques passed down through generations. The kunngobarn (pandanus) material used locally, which highlights environmental conservation at Kakadu, defines this bracelet.

This bangle represents ‘women’s business’ which is the art of weaving and material gathering for this bangle, signifying the need to retain and pass on the ancient customs. Every single piece carries a story about the West Arnhem, cultural heritage, and nature.

Features:

  • Traditional Harvesting Methods: Kungobarn is harvested using “manmarli”, a specially designed hook-stick with the traditional approaches of Bininj weavers.
  • Generational Legacy: The bracelet is a confirmation of the legacy of craftsmanship, which represents the skills and procedures passed on from generation to generation.
  • Environmental Connection: A connection is established between the artisan and the local country in Kakadu National Park by crafting the bracelet using native elements foraging in the country.
