About the design: Finches
Karen’s representation of finches reflects her passion for the wildlife around her home country, Yuendumu. Karen captures colour and life in this arid landscape. Nothing about local animals escapes her keen eye. Karten has painted a lot of Jukurrpa (Dreaming stories) in the past but is now very focused on wildlife.
About the BWA chainstitch kilim products
These beautiful, unique textiles are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques.

Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these products guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: These cushion covers feel great and are fabulously hardwearing – we can vouch for that.
Do not put place/use in direct sunlight or colors may fade. To clean – dry cleaning recommended. It is possible with careful hand-wash in warm water using a wool detergent. Creases can be ironed out on a wool (low) steam setting.
