Australian Aboriginal

M&S Textiles Australia is the world’s largest manufacturer of Australian Aboriginal designer fabrics. Australian Aboriginal or Indigenous designs are colorful, vibrant, and decorative. It is one of the longest continuing traditional arts in the world going back to over 50,000 years. In early days the Aboriginal people performed cave painting, rock painting, sand, or ground painting, etc.

Most of the Aboriginal designs printed have a Dreamtime story to tell. According to Aboriginal mythology, dreamtime is the time when the world was dark. A unique and interesting ancestral story which has been passed on from one generation to another through artwork is associated with each fabric design.
