Embark on a cultural journey through the Kakadu region with Woven Kids Necklace / Wall Décor. It comes from the ancient art of weaving handcrafted by Gwenyth Manakgu. 

The artisans use traditional manmarli hooked sticks to harvest fresh kunngobarn (pandanus) delicately. Then the sacred material is painstakingly dried, providing the canvas for a vibrant natural symphony composed of seasonal dyes.

Features:

  • Women's Empowerment: Weaving has traditionally been recognized as a ‘Women’s business’, empowering women in the community.
  • Versatile Use: Each piece can be worn as a necklace or even hung on the wall; each piece can be appreciated and showcase intricate craftsmanship in different ways.
  • Community Impact: Buying a Woven Kids Necklace/Wall Décor goes directly into the pocket of the Kakadu/West Arnhem Region community and helps local artisans in sustaining their livelihood.
