The Tjanpi Desert Weavers produce these spectacular woven baskets. This social enterprise represents over 400 Aṉangu/Yarnangu women artists in the remote Central and Western desert regions who earn an income from contemporary fibre art. Made of tjanpi (grass) and raffia, these baskets are a physical manifestation of a cultural practice fundamental to Central and Western desert populations.
