The floral pattern created in the base of pandanus bowls and baskets is a signature style of the Kunwingjku women of Mamadawere outstation. Jill Nganjmirra was the originator of this design, which was then adopted by her sister Marlene Buranali and Marlene's daughter Jeanette Buranali. Closely related women work together in their fibre practice and this style is an example of the way in which they share ideas. Each woman will also create her own individual and recognisable styles and forms.

Jeanette Burrunali works closely with her mother and her aunt, who teach her techniques and designs. Her coiled basket is based on the designs of her aunt.
