The artists of Peppimenarti are known for paintingss which reference the weave of syaw or fish-nets, traditionally woven by women. The weaving method of the syaw is the same as the stitch used in weaving warragarri (dilly bags), except bigger. The pinbin vine grows near the river and is stripped into fibres that are then woven onto the net. The syaw is used to catch fish, prawn and other edible living creatures in the creeks and rivers.
