Description

Dark Star Fabrics sells authentic Aboriginal Fabrics from M&S Textiles Australia. These are bold statement fabrics which, when combined with select blenders, can be used for dynamic quilting and sewing projects.

According to M&S Textiles Australia they are the largest manufacturer of Australian Aboriginal designs printed on good quality 100% cotton fabric. Aboriginal artworks are popular throughout the world and the only living ancient artwork. Its tradition goes back 50,000 years, revealed by carbon dating of rock and cave paintings. It is amazing that many of the artists do not have any formal education or training.

Most of the Aboriginal designs printed by M&S Textiles have a Dreamtime story to tell:

Bush Banana is a climbing woody vine found growing on other shrubs and trees. Its flowers are creamy in color. The thick narrow leaves grow from a short stock, and fruits are pear shaped. Bush Banana is widely distributed throughout Australia. Often vines are found growing in dry creek beds and water courses in arid zones. Bush banana is a potent plant to Aboriginal people. The fruits have good nutritional medicinal value. The extract and paste of leaves are often used to treat pains, stomach upset, flu etc.Bush Banana has got many Aboriginal names. One of the Aboriginal names is Anangkwe.

Bush banana is a totemic plant that is often featured by many Aboriginal artists in their artworks. Donna Abbot is an experienced and skillful artist from Alice Spring, Northern Territory. Her usage of color and design makes her work unique. Donna’s dreaming is Banana and she learned painting from her parents.
