Tali Tali Leather Large Slouch Bag
The first Cushion Slouch Bag was so popular, I've made more using different materials and leathers!
The amazing Tali Tali Sandhills hand screen print by artist Alice Nampitjinpa Dixon of Ikuntji Artists makes up the base of the bag; the top front and back a mix of dark blue and golden leathers that has a divine and soft slouch feel to it!
It sits so nicely when worn!
Some of the story behind Tali Tali: https://ikuntji.com.au/artwork/an-tali-beige-brown-charcoal-1m/4078/
This painting shows the artist’s Tjukurrpa, the Tali Tali Dreaming. It refers to the vast and desolate sandhills of her country near Taalalpi, which is located beyond the Kintore/Kiwikurra road near the West Australian and Northern Territory border. This is the country where her father and mother used to travel by foot when she was a young girl. The place is still of great spiritual significance to Alice and her father’s family as it contains both, personal and tribal law to which Alice relates in her work. Water has collected in between the sandhills, providing sustenance for her porcupine. The tjikamamta (porcupine) is Alice’s own personal tjukurrpa (dreaming). She returned to her country for a visit in late 2005.
