Blue and Black Rockholes Large Leather Slouch Bag
The first Cushion Slouch Bag was so popular, I've made more using different upholstery sample materials and leathers!
The remnant pieces of chocolate and blue/black leathers showcase the vibrant indigenous Rockholes print, designed by Alice Nampitjinpa Dixon from Ikuntji Artists, and hand screen printed by Publisher Textiles.
Nampitjinpa paints her father’s country of rockholes (puli) and sandhills (tali). There is plenty bushtucker – mangilpa, which are little black seeds around. The road to Kiwirrkurra passes Takupalangu on the side.
Alice describes the big swamp of Takupalangu, in her Fathers country. Takupalangu is filled up with bush vegetables called mungilpa. When Alice was a small girl she travelled this country with her family. Her mother used to collect mungilpa and pummel it into dough which she made into damper. It is also a good place for hunting bush meat as the swamp is surrounded by rock hills.
The bag has a great 'slouchy' feel and can hold a lot of things you need for the day!
The knotted hand-cut leather belt makes a great style strap for this bag and the length can be adjusted. The back has a panel of hand painted dots on leather stitched into grey and tan leathers.
