Bush Plum Black Australian Aboriginal fabric by Polly Wheeler
Bush Plum Black Australian Aboriginal fabric by Polly Wheeler is a delightful design showing the inside of a Bush Plum when it is cut open, printed in shades of olive and burgundy on a black background. The Australian Aboriginal fabric is printed on 100 % soft hand cotton and is 42" wide. It is ideally suited for quilting, garments, home decor and fabric crafts.
The Bush Plum is a vital food source for the Aboriginal people and is frequently festured in the women's dreaming stories. The fruits are harvested by shaking the trees until they fall to the ground. They need to be soaked in water to soften and plump for eating.
