Tjanpi Desert Weavers is one of the few opportunities for self-initiated income in the Central and Western desert region, enabling women living in these communities to make an income from fibre art.

Each year, Tjanpi generates approximately $200,000 in income for its artists. The benefits to artists extend past individual income and encompass the positive social outcomes that arise from having meaningful and culturally relevant employment that brings women together and celebrates community, culture, and Country.

Artwork sales provide vital income but to fully cover the costs of running the enterprise we rely on modest government and philanthropic funding, as well as the support of a number incredible Tjanpi partners.
