Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council created to enable women in remote central deserts to earn their own income from fibre art and preserve skills within the community.

Each handwoven basket is made from a mix of native tjanpi grass and brightly coloured raffia elements, creating a new spin on traditional weaving basket weaving techniques.

Beautiful as a centrepiece, in a cluster or hung as a wall decoration, these baskets are a showcase of the skill and creativity of Indigenous women in remote communities.
