Ernabella Art Inc is a women's enterprise that mainly sells objects made by women. Art and craft plays an important part in many women's lives at Ernabella, as well as being a source of money it facilitates certain skills, like weaving and wood carving, to be passed to younger people. The high quality we have come to expect from material sold through Ernabella Arts is clearly demonstrated in this collection. This reflects the producers' pride in the work they produce and have been producing for almost forty years. In combination with documentary material, this collection also shows the continued importance of art and craft production to people around Ernabella as a source of cash flow.
