Minnie Dress: Brown Basalt Bubbles (Madha)
Fabric story: "Madha" Basalt Bubbles (white)
Basalt Rock is from our dormant volcanos featuring dried lava. It is “vesicular” – meaning full of holes.
Basalt with holes is from the top sections (the fizzy part is like soda) that has exploded.
Solid basalt rock still lies beneath this and comes more from the volcanic core. The various colours reflect the varied stone colours throughout Country.
We prefer to use Basalt Rock in a 'Banga' to cook minya (food) in the ground.
All pieces are crafted and developed locally in Cairns by Cindy Hudson head seamstress (Jedess’ Mother). This allows Cindy and Jedess to ensure that each piece has high-quality workmanship.
