This hand woven pendant is part of a collection of Tili Wiru lights developed by Koskela in collaboration with the Tjanpi desert weavers.
Handwoven from a collection of local grasses (tjanpi), the pendants are particularly vibrant due to their use of bold colour, beads and feathers, features traditionally found in Tjanpi work. As an individual artist weaves the shade, each light is a one off and therefore entirely unique.
Tjanpi Desert Weavers was set up by the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Women’s Council in 1995 and is a social enterprise providing an income source for hundreds of women who go out bush, collect their local grasses (or ‘Tjanpi’) and weave them into baskets, sculptures and now lighting.
