Ghost nets are derelict fishing nets that drift aimlessly at sea indiscriminately fishing, killing turtles and other creatures, tangling boat propellers and snagging on reefs. We are recycling ghost net, incorporating other flotsum and making products for enjoyment and use. By purchasing a ghost net item you will be helping indigenous communities who collect this net and other groups who make items to develop economic opportunities. Wearing and using these products brings great joy and helps us to spread the Ghost Net message.
For more information on Ghost Nets see our giant ghost net sculpture 'Dauma & Garom' at the Australian Museum Sydney, http://australianmuseum.net.au/movie/Ghost-Net-Art-Story-Dauma-Garom/
