Join us for the launch of the IDAIA x Bábbarra Women's Center Collaboration: a collection of limited edition decorative objects and textile accessories created out of the beautiful fabrics by the women artists from the Aboriginal community of Maningrida, in Arnhem Land, far north of Australia.


The launch of the collection takes place in Paris to coincide with the artists' exhibition at the Australian Embassy in France ' Jarracharra - Les Vents de la saison sec ', and with the trip of a small number of them to Paris for this occasion. We will therefore have the joy and the honor of presenting the Babbarra collection in the company of these artists, on Friday October 4 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. 

The Babbarra Aboriginal Art Center is a social enterprise run by women for women, which enables indigenous women in the region to develop healthy and sustainable livelihoods, including through their workshop for the production of fabrics designed and printed with the hand. Each design is inspired by life in their traditional homelands, the flora and fauna found there, as well as the ancestral stories, or djang/wangarr. True showcases of culture, Babbarra's fabrics are recognized for their striking patterns and shimmering colors.

All the pieces in the collection have been designed and manufactured by a team of Parisian designers and craftsmen, using complementary materials made in France and most often from recycled materials, in order to highlight the fabrics with beautiful, ethical and eco-responsible objects. The collection will also be accompanied by a selection of works of art by the artists.

You will be presented in the beautiful bright space of the Bliss Studio gallery-showroom in the heart of the Marais:

 Art cushions / Lighting / Bags and pouches
• Unique pieces, such as a superb vintage upholstered screen
• Prints / Sculptures of mimih spirits / Sculptures of coffin trunks
• A selection of art fabrics.
