Tjanpi Desert Weavers

Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a not-for-profit Aboriginal social enterprise established in 1995 by the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjara Yankunytjatjara Women’s Council to provide an income source for women living in remote Central Australian communities. Today more than 400 Aboriginal women from 28 remote communities covering 350,000 square kms of the western and central deserts of Australia work with Tjanpi to create beautiful, intricate and whimsical fibre art.

Tjilkamarta Minyma Kutjarra Munu Wati Ngirntaka Warta (Two Porcupine Wives and Perentie Man Tree) was produced collaboratively by nine women from Warakurna Community: Eunice Porter, Anna Porter, Dorcas Bennett, Diane Golding, Nancy Jackson, Bridget Jackson and Dallas Smythe; and two women from Tjukurla Community: Annie Farmer and Tjawina Porter.
