Wheatbag - Ningina Tunapri
This is one of our two new designs from our collaboration with Contemporary Aboriginal Artist, Domica Hill.
'Ningina Tunapri' translates to 'To give knowledge and understanding' in Palawa Kani language.
'This piece represents the love and support between a father and son. It signifies the father being there for the son, sharing knowledge and guiding them through the journey of life.
The U shapes represent people, so around each site there is 2 men (father and son) sometimes with spears, sometimes not. This is to represent different lessons the father is teaching the son.'
As with all our products, our wheatbags are designed from original commissioned art by Australian artists which means they are as unique as they are beautiful. This is no wheatbag that deserves to be hidden away, her amazing colours should be there for all to see.
Our wheatbags are a generous 38cmx16cm in size with enough wheat to mould to your body wherever needed. They are unscented and make the most perfect gift.
Handmade in Australia from Australian grown organic wheat and 100% cotton covering.
*Same pattern on both sides
BEFORE USE: Please read our wheatbag safety instructions, which can be found under Customer Service in the footer of our website.
It is important to follow these instructions carefully as overheating or inappropriate use may result in injury or fire.
Wheatbags are not recommended for people who may have reduced awareness of temperature or feeling in their skin e.g. Diabetics, people with nerve damage, or people with an impairment that prevents them from recognising they may be burnt.
- Do not use if the wheatbag smells or looks burnt. If it does smell or look burnt, allow to cool on a non-combustible surface and then throw away.
- Please keep the wheat hydrated, especially if you use the wheatbag frequently as this will reduce the event of the grains drying out and burning. If you do use your wheatbag regularly, we recommend spraying the wheatbag lightly with a water spray bottle.
- Do not leave wheatbag unattended in the microwave in case of fire.
- To avoid burns, do not use directly on skin. Use a cover, clothing, or a towel between wheatbag and skin.
- Always give the wheatbag a gentle shake to even out heat before use. If too hot, do not use straight away, allow the wheatbag to cool down first. If the wheatbag requires more heat, place in microwave for 10 second intervals until desired heat is reached. Do not heat wheatbag in microwave for more than two and a half minutes.
- Do not use wheatbag on the same part of the body for more than five minutes continuously as continuous heat may burn.
- Use with caution, wheatbags can burn skin when used incorrectly and particularly with the elderly and children.
- Do not let children microwave wheatbags.
- Always supervise children when using a wheatbag.
- Microwave only, do not heat wheatbag in gas or electric ovens or on stovetops.
- Place wheatbag flat in centre of microwave plate and ensure wheatbag is rotating freely.
- It is not recommended to add oils or fragrances to the wheatbag as these may increase the risk of fire.

- Do not put away into storage until completely cold.
