This skirt is truly beautiful. The cream silk shimmers and the golden fish are beautifully highlighted on this piece. A shorter Aline style with a drop to just above the knee, the skirt is lined in silk and falls perfectly. Size 10 (S).

Fabric - Muputi

Artist: Angelo Munkara

This screen includes a selection of fish commonly found around the tiwi islands. Tiwi people use throw nets to catch small fish to be used as live bait to catch barramundi and salmon. Other fish commonly caught in the Apsley Strait, the creeks and off the beaches include bream, catfish, rock cod, sawfish, jewfish trevally, snapper and mangrove jack and mackeral.

Textile Design Process
Tiwi Design has been printing textiles since the early 1980's. The purpose built textile printing workshop is run by Osmond Kantilla, a master printer with over 20 years practical experience of printing textiles at Tiwi Design along with his assistant Alan Kerinauia.

Osmond supervises the translation of original artworks onto screens and manages the production of the hand printed fabrics. Osmond has designed screens himself and enjoys the artistic process of mixing colours and matching them to fabrics and designs.

Tiwi Design currently has three 13 metre long tables which are used to hand silkscreen print the textiles, t-shirts and t-towels. We have a commercial oven in which to cook the fabric and set the water based inks.
