Click through to Houzz for a great article on many Aboriginal designers we have worked (and are currently working) with.
Nicole Monks and Lucy Simpson will show their work later in the year as part of our year long Indigenous Design Mentorship Program. Alison Page was part of CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade. In 2013 we took the work of the Elcho Island weavers to Kanazawa in Japan as part of the 2nd international Triennale of Craft. So great to see these women taking traditional stories, themes and techniques into their contemporary practices.
