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:

Nambooka is a well-known designer in the quilting world. Her designs are clear, colorful and very attractive. In this design, Nambooka depicted the happenings around a waterhole on a summer day.

On a summer day, people wander around the bush to collect bush food and drink water from the waterholes. The semi-circles or ‘U’s are the people and their footsteps can be seen on the tracks. They use digging sticks to dig and gather food from the ground. Because of the hot day, animals like goannas, rainbow snakes, tortoises and frogs can also be seen going to the waterhole for water. Some long gum leaves (eucalyptus leaves) and fruit had fallen to the ground.
