This artwork depicts Marebu, woven pandanus mats, which Deborah often weaves for the Maningrida Arts and Culture Centre, the sister Art Centre to Bábbarra Women’s Centre in Maningrida.
When creating mats, artists commonly use a mix of naturally dyed and undyed fibre to create a striking variation of coloured bands. Some artists also incorporate different techniques of looping and plaiting to produce various patterns and textured finishes.
ABOUT THE COLLABORATION:
We are incredibly proud to share the Kip&Co x Bábbarra collaboration. The Bábbarra Women’s Centre is based in Maningrida, Arnhem Land, and is governed by women, for women, to enable future enterprises that support healthy and sustainable livelihoods. In 2018, Kip& Co received an invitation to collaborate with the artists and spent two years working closely with this incredible group to create a collection that respectfully showcases their contemporary art, and tells the ancestral stories of Arnhem Land countries and cultures. The partnership is best practice, and one that sets a benchmark for future collaborations. All profits are shared equally, with 50% going to the Bábbarra Women’s Centre.
