Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a not-for-profit Aboriginal social enterprise established in 1995 by the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Women’s Council to provide an income source for women living in remote Central Australian communities. Today more than 400 Aboriginal women artists from 28 remote communities covering 350,000 square kms of the western and central deserts of Australia work with Tjanpi to create beautiful, intricate and whimsical fibre art.
