    Tjanpi Desert Weavers, a signatory to the Indigenous Art code, is a dynamic social enterprise of the NPY Women's Council created to support Aboriginal women living in the remote Australian Central and Western deserts to create fibre art. Tjanpi (meaning ‘wild harvested grass’) supports the production of baskets, sculptures and seed jewellery made by over 400 artists from 26 remote communities across three states – Western Australia, Northern Territory and South Australia. Aboriginal women come together on country, collect grass, sculpt and weave, sing and dance and keep culture strong whilst creating beautiful, intricate, whimsical fibre art. When collecting desert grasses (minarri, wangurnu and yirlintji), women visit sacred sites and traditional homelands, hunt and gather food for their families and teach children abut country. Grass is bound with wool, string or raffia and sometimes combined with yinirnti (red sees of the bats-wing coral tre) and wipiya (emu feathers).
