Puli Puli Leather Large Slouch Bag
The popular Slouch bag made with the gorgeous Mint and Mustard Puli Puli fabric by Indigenous artist Keturah Zimran from Ikuntji Artists and carefully sewn into different leather pieces, one hand painted with gold dashes.
These photos were taken in golden afternoon sunlight and it really gives a lovely glow to the bag!
What I love with this fabric is you can own a little piece of the story;
the abstract shapes depict the natural rock formations (puli) found in and around Haasts Bluff. The mint and mustard print is a wonderful colour combination!
"When I was little I would watch my grandmother and mother paint. It was when I was young I realised 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.”
Stitched with different subtle textured and coloured leather pieces, this bag has a lovely slouchy feel and will hold everything you need for the day.
Lined with a vintage chintz cotton and handy leather pocket
The placement of the print and some of the leather may be slightly different due to the bag being individually made
