Description   Weaved using traditional materials and style, this type of dilly bag, made with love by Senior artist Coralie Wason, was historically used to strain poisons from foods before consumption.   The weave style here is a ‘tight’ weave meaning the weavers are added in close to one another to create a weave with little no space between each row.  Other styles are available please check our online catalogue.
Coralie is a strong advocate of her culture and was taught the weaving from Master weaver Rhonda Brim and continues to pass on the weaving method to her children and grandchildren alike.
