MaWi Australia Headhouse is in Burleigh on Yugambeh-Kombumerri land - Queensland - Australia


The Mini-Wi - KURUYULTU green - Lunchbag

The Mini-Wi - KURUYULTU green - Lunchbag


- Made entirely by hand in Burleigh (Gold Coast, Queensland - Australia)

- 100% virgin Australian sheep wool used for the best insulation there is!

- The sheep wool I use has been recycled after being discarded by the fashion industry, so no further sheeps were bothered to make any MaWi Australia's essentials and the sheep wool is a pure virgin product.

- The Mini-Wi is composed of 2 parts:

1) The woolly pouch (the inside insulated pouch) is naturally insulated with beautiful Australian sheep wool and has a waterproofed inside canvas so that you can easily wipe dry any humidity left from your cold drinks and food.

The woolly pouch is removable, to allow you to machine wash the outer bag.

2) The outer part of the Mini-Wi is a double layered bag into which you insert the woolly pouch.

So you actually have two bags in one: a naturally insulated lunchbag and a beautiful premium mini tote bag (when you remove the woolly pouch)!

- Wooden toggle buttons and macrame cord are used for the tying system, no metal or plastic!

- When your Mini-Wi is rolled down and closed, your food and drinks are kept perfectly cold for up to 9 hours (test performed without opening the bag during the length of the test)

- Dimensions: 39cm high x 23cm long x 15cm wide

- As each bag is individually made by hand, dimensions can slightly change

- Capacity: 13 Litres- The bags are very light and can be shipped worldwide

- The LIMITED EDITION handprinted fabrics used to design the outer bag of your Mini-Wi are ethically sourced from the Indigenous community of IKUNTJI in the Northern Territory
- This Kuruyultu fabric is made of Tencel and Linen
- This design by Eunice Napanangka Jack - Luritja, Ngaanyatjarra, Pintupi - artist from Haasts Bluff, depicts her father’s Tjukurrpa (Dreaming).
It shows the country at Kuruyultu, near Tjukurrla in Western Australia.
Now an important woman in the community Eunice is well known for her hunting skills, dancing and traditional law knowledge.
Eunice’s paintings are interpretations of her country near Lake Mackay.
She uses layers of colour to build up a vision of the bush flowers and grasses.
Amongst this landscape Eunice’s personal stories are told, either of the travelling of her tjukurrpa – the Bilby – or the people who once lived in the area.
- Her Hairstring works are made up of thousands of varied colour strokes, representing the hair being rolled on women’s thighs to make bags and clothing. Highly collectable, Eunice is represented in leading galleries worldwide.
