May Wokka Chapman Tote Bag

Sophisticated and functional, this Australian made cotton tote bag features details from the artwork 'Untitled', by May Mayiwalku (May Wokka) Chapman from Martumili Artists.

Martumili Artists was established by Martu people living in the communities of Parnpajinya (Newman, Western Australia), Jigalong, Parnngurr, Punmu, Kunawarritji, Irrungadji and Warralong, and it draws on strong influences of aboriginal art history. The artists and their families are the traditional custodians of vast stretches of the Great Sandy, Little Sandy and Gibson Deserts, as well as the Karlamilyi (Rudall River) area. Most Martu people maintained an entirely independent, nomadic desert lifestyle until the 1950s and 1960s when they walked into settlements in response to a long and severe drought. Today, Martu people live in their own communities and regularly visit regional centres, such as Newman and Port Hedland.

Royalties from this product directly benefit the artist and their community.
