About this product

Raylele is an artist with Jilamara Arts, established in 1989, Jilamara Arts and Crafts Association is owned and governed by Tiwi artists from Milikapiti community on Melville Island. In Tiwi language, Jilamara means design which is explored across mulptip mediums such as textiles, carvings, paintings and prints.

The Tiwi Islands, Bathurst Island & Melville Island, are north of Darwin and have been home to Tiwi people since parlingarri (a long time ago). Milikapiti community is on the coast over overlooking the Arafura Sea. It’s a happy place, with strong families and strong culture. Through workshops, training, support and representation, Jilamara artists are supported to build careers as internationally renowned artists.

In the community, the art centre is recognised as an important place for children and emerging artists to learn from the senior artists and elders about their culture and practices. The Muluwurri Museum is an important keeping place for Tiwi culture and stories, important for remembering old ways and the old people who started Jilamara. For artists and community members, the art centre presents an opportunity to earn an independent income in a supportive environment.

Dali Dyalgala is a special fabric range collaboration between Koskela and First Nations artists. Spanning the Tiwi Islands, Northern Rivers and Northern Territory, this project truly highlights the adaptability, breadth and depth of artistic expression in the First Nations design industry. 

Dali dyalgala is a Darug phrase meaning to embrace. A fitting reflection of the coming together of six female artists across the country from various language groups and cultures. The choice to use Darug language ties the project back to Koskela as we pay respects and acknowledge our local language of the Eora people. Dali dyalgala is a gesture of reconciliation, to embrace one another and work together to make positive change.

Koskela licensed the artworks directly from the artists and art centres to develop a range of unique colourways for each. Dali dyalgala presents a new opportunity to create income streams for First Nations artists and is an exciting addition to Koskela’s fabric range.
