This is a Unique Print. We used real string coated with ink to make it. The string lies differently every time making each one unique. Dilly bags were very important to our old people. A good dilly bag can take weeks to weave from natural fibre. A dilly bag can last for a couple of years with hard use. Our old people carried everything they needed in dilly bags including fish like barramundi, sharks, rays, shellfish and anything else they could hunt and gather. Now days we use plastic bags. A dilly bag is also a totem for us. They are an item from our past that represents our cultural identity today.
