Seljak Gather Blanket

The Seljak Gather blanket is a soft, lighter-weight blanket. It can be used as a throw for the couch and the bed, for outdoor dining, or for taking to the moonlight cinema. This blanket is made with yarn spun in Italy from old woolen jumpers and garments.

The weave of the Gather blanket brings together the many threads of a gulayi (Quandamooka women’s bag) which loops and diagonally knots ungaire (freshwater swamp reeds). Gulayi have supported daily life for millennia and were used to gather shellfish from the shorelines of Minjerribah and Mulgumpin (North Stradbroke and Moreton Island). Our Quandamooka waters are alive, nurturing and sustaining us with ginyingara (oysters), eugaries (pipis)and quampi shells and many other precious freshwater and saltwater food sources. Today, on country, we gather to weave and feast from the dabiyil (waters). Quandamooka djagan marumba (Quandamooka country is beautiful). – Elisa Jane Carmichael
