The Story Behind the Design
The art depicts the migration of birds as the centre piece where
they would consume a variety of fruits, one being the Quandong
fruit which is represented by the blue and green spheres.
The T shape designs represents the birds, which is seen travelling
between the centre piece, dropping the seeds to the rainforest floor
and moving to various locations to drop the digested seeds.
The quandong fruit is special to the Djabugay Bama
(peoples), as these seeds are used as traditional attire.
traditional stories through dancing. The lines represent the body paint worn in ceremony.
Perfect for play-based learning, and for children to engage, connect to the stories & in turn spark conversation!
Cleaning the rug
Vacuum Regularly. Avoid any cleaning agent with bleach or strong chemicals. It is best to try an area for colourfastness before using across a large area of the rug. We recommend to use a dry powder style of cleaner as they can be vacuumed out of the rug and do not leave any residue. When cleaning, always blot, and never scrub or rub abrasively.
DO NOT run vacuum directly over outer serged edge of carpet. This can create fraying. Clean spills immediately by blotting with a cloth or sponge. Remove any grease spots with ordinary dry cleaning solvents. If you do vacuum over the edge of the rug it can cause serge yarn to become frayed and torn. It is always best to test a cleaner on an inconspicuous spot on the carpet/rug before applying to the entire piece.
Professional or periodic cleanings using the power spray-extraction carpet cleaning method are recommended. You should have the smallest possible amount of cleaning chemical used when you hire a professional cleaner. Allow to dry flat on the floor.
Not recommended for use outdoors or in bright sunlight as the material colours may fade over time.
