Native Grasses


For upwards of 40,000 years, Aborigines have used the land and resources at their disposal.  At least half of food eaten by Aborigines came from plants.

Australian native plants have many common uses beyond food too. Baskets, mats and nets; tree bark buckets, dishes, even canoes. Native mints act as remedies for colds and coughs.

And as the Australian population and culture changed, so too  has the landscape, bringing about the destruction of many native species.

Luckily, though, conservation efforts and greater awareness have helped combat this. Join us, and help rejuvenate the natural Australian bush landscape and foster an appreciation of culture, weaving and natural remedies.

Pre-order now, launching January 2018.
