Time Out says

These gorgeous Indigenous lighting designs are being exhibited at Koskela

Koskela is already one of the nicest places in Sydney to pick up something special, and now there’s an extra reason to visit. This month, the company celebrates 10 years of collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with Ngalya, an exhibition of six new lighting designs developed and made by Indigenous weavers around Australia. From harvesting the plants to stripping their leaves, digging up and peeling roots for dye and soaking, drying and weaving the fibres, each stage of the lampshade’s construction is made according to traditional techniques and woven ‘on country’ on the site of each artist’s ancestral land. Better yet, every product is for sale, and Koskela will donate one percent of anything sold at the store to developing more projects with Indigenous communities.
