The weave of the Gather blanket brings together the many threads of a gulayi (Quandamooka women’s bag) which loops and diagonally knots ungaire (freshwater swamp reeds). Gulayi have supported daily life for millennia and were used to gather shellfish from the shorelines of Minjerribah and Mulgumpin (North Stradbroke and Moreton Island). Our Quandamooka waters are alive, nurturing and sustaining us with ginyingara (oysters), eugaries (pipis)and quampi shells and many other precious freshwater and saltwater food sources. Today, on country, we gather to weave and feast from the dabiyil (waters). Quandamooka djagan marumba (Quandamooka country is beautiful). – Elisa Jane Carmichael

Seljak Brand uses post-consumer textiles waste that is recycled in mills in Italy and Lithuania.

The yarn is spun in Italy out of old woollen jumpers and garments. The garments are separated into colour piles and then shredded and combed, ready for spinning. Read more on the yarn making process

The yarn is then taken to Lithuania for weaving into blankets. The mill we work with in Lithuania is almost a century old and is expert at weaving luxurious woollen blankets. The jacquard looms mean we can weave beautiful, abstract artwork into the blankets. Read more about the mill in Lithuania
