Diäär Kuo Dinka Crafts

Collective of South Sudanese Women

Diäär Kuo, meaning ‘our women’, is a collective of South Sudanese women who, together, use traditional beadwork and coil weaving to create home décor, jewellery, and clothing.

The group first began working together in 2018, inspired by a weaving workshop facilitated by community leader and expert weaver, Mary Anwat. For Diäär Kuo, women’s weaving circles represent an opportunity to create a stronger community and to learn and to share evolving handicraft methods across generations, both young and old.

Diäär Kuo have previously exhibited at MAV’s Interwoven exhibition.
