In 2017 Anindilyakwa Arts launched their first Bush Dye fashion collection, including plant dyed garments along with accessories woven from reclaimed ghost nets and recycled textiles such as earrings, bags and baskets on the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair ‘Country to Couture’ catwalk. Every year since, artists have been creating an annual fashion collection to be debuted at this event that has come to attract national and international audiences.

Collaborating with Darwin textile artist Anna Reynolds, Warnumamalya artists now also incorporate digital textile designs into their fashion collection pieces. Elements from each artist’s artworks, country and culture are photographed then manipulated in design software to create an exclusive design.

In 2021 this concept expanded to an exclusive digital printed scarf range, printed on a selection of beautiful silks.

“The net comes from all over the world, from overseas, it travels days and days, months and months. It sits invisible in the sea, like a monster, killing the sea animals, turtle fish, dugong, shark, all the animals that live in the deep blue sea. Killing our bush tucker . It washes to our island.   The Anindilyakwa sea rangers find it and give it to us art centre ladies. I make  Yilkwa ( monsterfish) to travel like the net to tell this story”.
