Notebook Handmade Paper - Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming)
This beautiful journal is a cross cultural project, designed in Australia and handmade in Jaipur, India.
The paper is eco friendly, being made from cotton scraps sourced from the garment industry. No wood or toxic chemicals are used in production. One tonne of handmade paper saves an estimated 277 Eucalyptus Trees. As well as these benefits, this handmade paper is beautiful, and produced in clean, airy workshops in Jaipur, India.
The design is owned by Pauline Nampijinpa.
This particular site of the Yankirri Jukurpa (emu dreaming) is at Ngarlikurlangu, north of Yuendumu. The 'yankirri' travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. Emus are usually represented by their 'wirliya' (footprints), arrow-like shapes that show them walking around eating 'yakajirri' (bush raisin).
Each journal measures approx. 13cm x 19cm and is blank inside.
