From a tradition spanning thousands of years comes a piece of art that is a wonderful mix of beauty and practicality…
Alperstein’s Aboriginal Art collection is a bright collection of accessories that feature the artworks of some of Australia’s finest Indigenous artists. With their bold colours and amazing designs, these pieces do true justice to the works on which they’re based.
Together with Woolmark and selected Indigenous artists, Alperstein have released a plush range of woollen throw rugs that could very well be artistic tapestries. Spun from pure new wool yarn, they’re beautifully soft and versatile, with a breathability that provides year-round comfort.
Kathleen Gibson’s design depicts her homeland of Nyirrripi, a place covered in sand and low vegetation. Sandstorms and whirly-whirly, (miniature tornados) are a common sight, and they lift and deposit dust and seeds to continue the desert cycle elsewhere. Upon this Woollen Throw Rug, several whirly-whirly are depicted together, rising out of the dusty earth.
Kathleen Gibson’s Throw Rug is a powerful way to bring this historic art to life.
