The designs on these beautiful Australian fabrics are from Aboriginal designers. Australian Aboriginal designs have a heritage that dates back 5,000 years. Much of Aboriginal history exists in the form of 'The Dreaming Stories' which explain all of life and are central to their culture and relationship to the natural world. Aboriginal art illustrates their 'Dreaming Stories' with a series of symbolic motifs. Dreaming Story symbols include concentric circles, curved lines and straight lines. Campsites, waterholes or other places of significance are usually represented by concentric circles. Curved lines generally represent rain or water traveling underground. Straight lines may be indicative of traveling, and when these lines join concentric circles, it may show the pathway traveled by their ancestors. The abstract dot-and-circle designs, based on traditional 'Dreaming Stories', have become a trademark of the contemporary Aboriginal art movement. These iconic designs are now available on the highest-quality, 100% cotton fabric. They are 42 inches wide. These fabrics will be perfect for quilts, clothing and home dec projects. Our Australian fabrics are sure to become the treasures of any fabric collection. The six fabrics are available as a collection of fat quarters (18 inches X 22 inches)or may be purchased individually, by the yard.
