Flowers in the Desert Red Australian Aboriginal fabric by Lauren Doolan
Flowers in the Desert Red Australian Aboriginal fabric by Lauren Doolan depicts pink flowers profusely blooming in the desert after a rare rainfall, set against a red background. This Australian Aboriginal fabric is ideal for quilting, home decor, garments and other crafts. The Australian Aboriginal fabric is printed on 100 % cotton from India. The fabric is 42" wide.
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 blossoms of beautiful flowers. The Aboriginal people consider this as a blessing and celebrate the blossom of wild flowers, pods and bush beds at their traditional rituals and corroborree (gatherings). Aboriginal Women decorate themselves with these wildflowers, daisies and bush leaves when they gather for dancing, singing, corroborree and storytelling. Some of these wildflowers are considered a representation of their spiritual ancestors in beautiful appearances. With winds and currents, these wildflowers sing, entertain and relax people of the land with their fragrance and angelic view.
