Kunmadj (Handbag)

A Marebu is a traditionally woven mat, which is made from natural, locally sourced materials from the Kakadu/West Arnhem Region. Weavers gather fresh kunngobarn (pandanus), from the young leaves in the middle of the palm using a hooked stick called a manmarli, once harvested in large quantities. Kunggobarn is then striped into two, split into fine strands and dried. Once dried, the pandanus is then ready for dying.

Two Marebu have been woven and joined together to create this stunning Kunmadj (handbaag).
