The Sunkissed Casa Spirit Bag is made out of beautiful flax linen fabric using linocut technique by Indigenous artist Lucy Yarawanga. Lined with soft cotton. The perfect everyday bag, and big enough for grocery shopping, a sleep over or a day at the beach.
Approx 48cm X 38cm.
From the artist:
"This is the Dreaming of my mother and my uncles. These spirits are called Bawáliba. A long time ago they used to go out hunting. That’s in Ranger station near the airport (mum and uncle from further this way to Jingarr). Their homeland. They used to go out hunting with dilly bags and digging sticks. They used to collect a lot of bush foods, and sleep together with one bark shelter. Sometimes they come alive when we sleep, they come in the house when we sleep and peep through the window and we looked them with white clay (gapan) and red cloth tied around. We get up to look but they have disappeared. They are really tall. They are like human beings, like us. They dance and have a lot of hair. They are carrying fish traps and digging sticks.They are good spirits, they protect us and they recognise families. They might knock on the window to remind us they are there looking out for us. You can hear them whisper, sometimes they talk about us and might say, ‘why are they making a house here?’ Then they say to each other, ‘This family are from here, its ok, they are sleeping here for the night’. During the day they turn into stone and they sleep. When you see that green rock, that’s Bawáliba."
About our Bags:
Fast fashion is one of the biggest problems we are facing when it comes to land-fill. That's why our Sunkissed Casa Bags are made with sustainability in mind. Whether it's repurposing old tent fabric for the man-bag or sourcing small batches of uniquely designed fabric from Indigenous Communities and having them made in small batches locally, we are trying to minimising land fill by up-cycling or using natural fabrics that can return to the earth without doing serious damage. Our Sunkissed Casa bags are handmade locally made in the Northen Beaches of Sydney, co-deigned by myself and talented designer (and dear friend) Pamela Berbigier, who also makes them. You can see Pamela's beautiful clothes on her website Ella Fashion.
Part of our sustainable philosophy is to practice minimal packaging. We also love our customers to feel special when opening them. That's why our products are beautifully wrapped in recycled brown paper and sent to you in a compostable postage bag or box.
