Puli Puli Indigenous Screen Print and Leather cross-body bag
A lovingly handcrafted and fun cross-body bag made with a beautiful original screen-print by Indigenous artist Keturah Zimran from Ikuntji Arts (hand printed by Publisher Textiles) and a soft tan leather back with top-stitched detail.
The pink and silver abstract shapes depict the natural rock formations (puli) found in and around Haasts Bluff. Here's a piece of her story:
"When I was little I would watch my grandmother and mother paint. It was when I was young I realized I wanted to paint. I started painting in 2005 and my brother paints as well. He paints waru, bush fire Dreaming.
I paint about the sand hills my mother also painted about the sand hills and the Napaltjarri sisters.
I have my own family now. I have seven children. I have two granddaughters and two grandsons. My husband is also a painter. He paints about his grandfather’s country: Lake Mackay.
I like to paint; painting helps me forget my troubles. I paint every day.
My Grandmother used to say to me when I was younger: “One day you will paint.”
All Designed By Kate bags are lovingly handmade by myself, and carefully made to last for years. A great detail with this bag is the leather strap can be unclipped, and the bag can become a clutch. Lined with vintage silk, it's a very stylish bag.
Adorned with a quality metal zipper.
Hand-cut removable leather strap, 122 cms.
(The placement of the print can vary slightly from bag to bag)
