Aboriginal Designed Rug/Wall Hanging

Rug/Wall Hanging by Kurun Warun



These uniquely designed rugs are finished to a very high standard. Wool is used to embroider the pattern which is then stitched onto a heavy weight canvas which serves as the backing for each rug/wall hanging. The underside of the rug has been prepared with an anti-slip surface. To use as a wall-hanging, there is a fold-over on one side of each piece to allow for rods to pass through.

These uniquely designed rugs are finished to a very high standard.

The underside of the rug has been prepared with an anti-slip surface. To use as a wall-hanging, there is a fold-over on one side of each piece to allow for rods to pass through.

These beautiful unique rugs are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Each rug is a completely handmade piece. This project is unusual because the rug is owned by the artists, rather than licensed to a third party. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists' and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these rugs guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.

Better World Arts

Better World Arts (BWA) has been operating for over two decades. They work with Australian Aboriginal artists from remote communities across Australia. Artists benefit from royalties paid to them on a monthly basis. Having culturally appropriate opportunities, artists are able to supplement rural income by practising age old traditions in their own homes located in remote beautiful clean villages. Art centres benefit from a substantial profit share paid on their investments.
