Raw material - bundle of dried reeds.
Fresh water reeds, known as nyungair.
Collected from swamps on the inside of Minjerribah (Stradbroke Is.) to make baskets. The reeds from the inland parts of the island were not as brittle as those found near the coast and so were much more suited to weaving.
Used in Anthropology Museum display.
