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.

Story:

For the Aboriginal People of Australia, their country is more than a place to live. Every mountain, river, waterhole, tree, animal etc. is part of their dreaming, and through this, it is believed that all these things were created by their ancestors, who live in the five elements of nature, viz: air, land, water, sky, and fire. Janet's dreaming mainly involves Fire Dreaming, Underground Water, Sandy Creek etc.
