I first introduced you to the interesting and beautiful world of Willie Weston last year. Co-founders Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti have created a vehicle to work with Indigenous owned and operated art centres in remote communities across Australia and in turn; transform their work into modern, high quality textiles and product. Revisit that original post here. 

They have now presented their follow up collection and I’ve got to say….have completely backed up and boosted their exciting design led project and its ethos. The  Ampilatwatja Collection presents the work of Artists of Ampilatwatja the art centre and agents for the creatives; Colleen Ngwarraye Morton and Rosie Ngwarraye Ross.

“Artists of Ampilatwatja is approximately 300 kilometres northeast of Alice Springs in Central Australia, in the community of Ampilatwatja. It is home to the Alyawarr people, whose language is also Alyawarr. The area has a long and chequered pastoral history, and the Alyawarr people use their distinctive art to express their connection to, and traditional knowledge of, their ancestral lands.”

These rich and detailed textiles are available to be ordered off the roll at $130 AU per metre. All easily explore online here at Willie Weston.
