Story: Ngatijirri Nests
'Ngatijirri' (Budgerigar) are small, bright green birds native to central Australia which are common around the Yuendumu area, especially after the summer rains. Men would hunt for Ngatijirri nests, robbing them of eggs and juvenile birds, which are both considered delicacies.

It was purchased as a gift, which was well received. Lovely fabric, attractive pattern... nothing shabby about this bow tie!
Wonderful Indigenous Creations
I have bought these a gifts to take to Poland. I am not leaving until May so I don't have any experience of using them. However, I like their appearance and the stories behind each individual piece.
