'Rokuni (bush flower)' 2018-07-09
Rokuni is found on the beach and used for bush medicine. The leaves of the Rokuni leaves are boiled and used for skin conditions and bites. The flowers can be rubbed straight on to upset skin. This bush medicine is extremely effective and has a healing effect for a short time.
Our Jilamara textiles are hand screen printed by a team of 4 printers, in the Nancy Henry Ripijingimpi screenprinting studio at Jilamara. Each meterage is unique and will most likely have one or two bush touches (a little Milikapiti earth, a smudge of ochre etc). We hope these imperfections remind you of where these textiles were made. We use hanky linen, 100% cotton and a cotton polyester blend. Fabric is sold in 2-metre lengths. Please enquire about colourways or if you have something else in mind.
