The Yolngu country surrounding Milingimbi Island is the inspiration for each of these one-of-a-kindness coolamons.

Coolamons, traditionally carried on the head, are oval in shape and were predominantly used by women for gathering bush tucker, carrying water and cradling babies.
Women spent many hours walking to find enough food to satisfy their tribe which included native fruits, such as the wild passionfruit, plums, figs, tomatoes, raisins and berries.
Coolamon’s were often ornately decorated with beautiful designs of birds, animals or traditional tribal patterns by burning the wood with a wire that was heated on the camp fire. Regular rubbing of the vessel with animal fat ensured the protection and conditioning of the wood. 

Approx 300mm x 220mm x 120mm

Each handcrafted from native Australian hardwood. Perfect for corporate gifting.
