“Dune is a connection to land and light. It is camping in the sand dunes of Central Australia, an exploration of gorges, ancient rock and ochre pits under the ever-changing and vast dome of the sky. The luminescence of dusk and earthly dust is woven together to express the surprising softness within the desert environment. Dune – at once grounded and becoming one with space.” – Karina Seljak
"Lune is inspired by the interconnectedness, vulnerability and power of the Great Barrier Reef", this blanket is woven in Lithuania with yarn spun from reclaimed woollen jumpers in Italy.
Exciting news… we’ve collaborated with our dear friend Quandamooka artist Leecee Carmichael to create a new blanket – the Gather blanket!
Leecee’s practice honours her saltwater heritage by incorporating materials collected from Quandamooka Country (North Stradbroke and Moreton Islands), embracing traditional techniques, and expressing contemporary adaptations through painting, weaving, and textiles.
We commissioned Leecee to create an artwork and together we transformed it into a blanket design.
“The weave of the Gather blanket brings together the many threads of a gulayi (Quandamooka women’s bag) which loops and diagonally knots ungaire (freshwater swamp reeds). Gulayi have supported daily life for millennia and were used to gather shellfish from the shorelines of Minjerribah and Mulgumpin (North Stradbroke and Moreton Island). Our Quandamooka waters are alive, nurturing and sustaining us with ginyingara (oysters), eugaries (pipis)and quampi shells and many other precious freshwater and saltwater food sources. Today, on Country, we gather to weave and feast from the dabiyil (waters). Quandamooka djagan marumba (Quandamooka Country is beautiful).” – Leecee Carmichael
We photographed the blanket on Quandamooka country with Leecee’s mother and master weaver Aunty Sonja Carmichael and Leecee’s baby, Ira.
Care for your blanket: Because this is a naturally antibacterial product, the easiest way to clean your blanket is to air it out by hanging it in the sun (plus it's environmentally friendly). Spot clean dirty marks and spills with lukewarm soapy water. If necessary, machine wash at maximum 30 degrees with a wool wash and hang dry. Reducing machine washing extends your blanket’s life and reduces energy and water consumption.
