Who are the Weekly Drop?
The Weekly Drop is a new Australian business that believes in fine wine and giving back. Their resident Sommelier, Josh, has over 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry. Each week Josh selects a red and a white, selected not just by vintage, always by taste. Think of him as your personal sommelier.
Beyond delivering fine wine to your home, The Weekly Drop endeavours to have a positive environmental impact. Therefore, for every person who subscribes to fortnightly or weekly ‘Drops’, The Weekly Drop will have a tree planted each month by their partners at Greenfleet. They also use a 100% carbon neutral delivery service. This way, people can grow even more than their appreciation of good wine.
The prize of two monthly subscriptions, is a wonderful way to enjoy some fabulously selected wines and gift the other to a loved one. You will each receive two bottles a month delivered to your door.
Who is behind Ngumpie Weaving?
Tegan Murdock is an Aboriginal contemporary weaver with the mission to weave her culture through community. Tegan is a proud Aboriginal woman from the Barkindtji nation who has been weaving for two years recreationally. However, about a year ago she went into business for herself. What started with earrings, exploded into the contemporary weaving business: Ngumpie Weaving.
She learned how to weave two years ago from her mother, Margaret. She recalls falling in love with the process from the beginning, reflecting that she could sit for hours without break, loving every moment of it.
Tegan draws inspiration from her ancestors, who have helped her to shape the style, designs and concepts of her process. Because of this, Tegan believes that weaving can be a powerful tool to heal and develop personal growth within the individual whilst also creating feelings of connection in challenging times such as these.
Ngumpie in Barkindtji language translates to ‘Beautiful’ and is the nick name for what Tegan’s grandmother would often call her. So when deciding on a business name, this was the name that stuck with her the most.
