About the Bush Dye Collection


"The old people teach us to collect colour to dye pandanus for weaving. Roots, leaves and bark. Now we also bush dye new ways with fabrics. When people hold bush dye, they can feel our country, the spirit of the old people" - Annabel Amagula.


Hand wash with cold water. Natural pigments may transfer and fade.
