Warndu The Big Whirlwind 'Madkandyi' Tea Towel
◦ Only 0 left ◦
Introducing our range of premium Indigenous art tea towels, featuring licensed artwork by Warndu co-founder Damien Coulthard.
'Madkandyi' means The Big Whirlwind.
The painting accounts for the direction of the sandridge's across much of the Central Australian desert, and is an excellent example of the great ability Aboriginal knowledge keepers have of being able to describe vast tracks of country as though they were looking from outer space.
This story is best understood in conjunction with an Australian continent map depicting sandridges. They are seen as directional lines guiding travel from the Great Victoria Desert and Simpson Desert; connecting to the Flinders Ranges and big lakes of South Australia (Lake Eyre, Lake Torrens and Lake Frome).
Our tea towels are digitally printed in Australia, using certified Australian Organic Cotton.
Our products are all made in Australia from 100% locally sourced, seasonal and wild harvested produce.
Warndu means good in the Adnyamathanha language.
Our mission is to REGENERATE culture, community, tradition, health and our soils. Every product we make includes one or more Australian Native ingredients.
To maintain Warndu taste we keep smaller quantities on hand of our Australian Natives, it takes us a little while to dry, roast or grind them to make. We aim to send all orders within ten days of receiving them.
