In celebration of human craft and local artistry, with help from the Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency, Showroom-X has collaborated with Rukaji Designs in curating a collection of 100% Australian silk sarongs and scarves. Looking back to historical techniques of fabric dyeing, each scarf is dyed by hand with naturally occurring Australian earth elements; bark, rust, red dirt, and botanicals such as tea tree. These elemental pigments capture the diversity and geographical drama of the West Australian landscape. Led by matriarch Eva Nargoodah and her eldest daughter Ivy, the Nargoodah family are passionate creators and cultural keepers, having developed their textile designs over many years. Rukaji are proud to keep the cultural practices that surround bush medicines and dyes alive, teaching their children and broader community about these essential practices. Each purchase directly increases the supply of silk fabric used by the Rukaji family to create their artworks. This acts to support local economies by facilitating income streams for the artists.
