The textile articles sold by Aussie Products as being of Australian Aboriginal origin begin life as paintings. These are these transposed onto a range of fabrics, some of which are sold as yardage, some as quilting pre-cuts, while others are transformed into headgear, home-wares and scarves and ties.

The designs are all attributed to the original artists, and they benefit from the sale of articles made from fabrics bearing their designs.

Artist Bio

Lauren Doolan comes from Santa Terese of Central Australia. She belongs to the Doolan family and speaks the Arrernte language. Her dreamings mainly involve Wild Desert Flowers, Dancing Spirits, Spirit People etc.
Aboriginal Women decorate themselves with these Wild Flowers, Daisies, Bush Leaves when they gather for dancing, singing, corroboree, storytelling etc.

Story:

Australian Outback is vast and displays a very harsh climate with extreme temperatures and almost no rainfall. Occasionally, when it rains, this deserted land showcases its prominence with the blossom of beautiful flowers. The Aboriginal people of Australia consider this as a blessing and celebrate the blossom of wildflowers, pods, bush beds at their traditional rituals and corroboree (gatherings). Some of these wildflowers are considered as a representation of their spiritual ancestors in beautiful appearances.
