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 old people in the old times when the Maccassan’s where here we would share these as food with them in trading for teabags, sugar and smokes, blankets and clothing. I chose the trepang when I went to Jakarta I saw a different kind of trepang, and I wove it. It now is now on my scarf.”
