We’ve touched based a few times with Willie Weston co-founders Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti since they launched their business to work with Indigenous owned and operated art centres in remote communities across Australia and in turn; transform their work into modern, high quality textiles and product.
I first introduced you to the interesting and beautiful world of Willie Weston last year. Co-founders Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti have created a vehicle to work with Indigenous owned and operated art centres in remote communities across Australia and in turn; transform their work into modern, high quality textiles and product. Revisit that original post here.
They have now presented their follow up collection and I’ve got to say….have completely backed up and boosted their exciting design led project and its ethos. The Ampilatwatja Collection presents the work of Artists of Ampilatwatja the art centre and agents for the creatives; Colleen Ngwarraye Morton and Rosie Ngwarraye Ross.
“Artists of Ampilatwatja is approximately 300 kilometres northeast of Alice Springs in Central Australia, in the community of Ampilatwatja. It is home to the Alyawarr people, whose language is also Alyawarr. The area has a long and chequered pastoral history, and the Alyawarr people use their distinctive art to express their connection to, and traditional knowledge of, their ancestral lands.”
These rich and detailed textiles are available to be ordered off the roll at $130 AU per metre. All easily explore online here at Willie Weston.

Willie Weston is just about to cause some seriously positive ripples in the down under design scene!
The brainchild of Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti, two young women who are highly experienced and educated in the arts – Willie Weston is a business focused on combining art, form and function at a new level. The debut collection of indoor/outdoor furniture and accessories features fabric printed with the work of Australian indigenous artists Jean Baptiste Apuatimi and Osmond Kantilla.
I love how subtle the prints are and the fresh clean lines of the furniture – such a breath of fresh air! Very excited to watch this brand develop and grow!
