MANUFACTURER: M & S Textiles Australia
AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL ARTIST: TREPHINA SULTAN was born in Alice Springs in 1967 and grew up with many uncles, aunties, and cousins. Trephina was the only child in her family and learned to paint at a very young age and her art is highly sought after by private collectors. Trephina went to an English speaking school in Alice Springs and speaks in both English and the language of her family, Luritja.
PALETTE: Multicoloured: blue, grey, yellow, red
THE DESIGN: 'Dreamtime' or 'Dreaming' has never been a direct translation of an Aboriginal word. There is no English word that expresses the complex Aboriginal spiritual concepts to non Aboriginal people. The Dreaming or Dreamtime indicates a psychic state during which contact is made with the ancestral spirits of that special beginning. In this artwork, Trephine shows how knowledge is passed on from Aboriginal ancestors to the young generations and keeping them aware of their Aboriginal culture.
DISCLAIMER: One of the drawbacks of buying fabric online is that in spite of every effort made by the Seller to provide a photo that represents the true colour of the item, it is impossible to do so, as the colour appears differently on every computer screen. Therefore the item you receive may be a slightly different shade to what appears on your computer screen.
SHIPPING: No online postage calculator is sophisticated enough to accurately compute postage based on both fabric value and weight. You are always welcome to ask us for a postage quote for multiple purchases. Should our automated postage calculator charge you more than 'actual' postage and you have already paid, we will immediately refund the overage.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING delivery times vary depending on the destination, Customs, and local postal service. Orders usually arrive in 10 -21 days although this can extend to 30+ days for Canadian deliveries. Peak period delivery times can delay delivery, especially in the lead up to Christmas.
CUSTOMS DUTY: If you are buying from outside of Australia, it is possible that you may be charged Customs Duty or other charges before your order will be released to you. We are in no way accountable for customs duty, handling fees or taxes that a Buyer may be required to pay upon delivery. We recommend that Buyers check with the appropriate authority in their country before they buy.
RETURNS/EXCHANGES: Whilst every effort is made to accurately process your order, mistakes can occasionally be made.
Exchanges or refunds are at the sole discretion of the Seller. (“I’ve changed my mind” is not an acceptable reason to return an item.) If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact the Seller within 7 days of delivery for pre-approval before returning a purchase for exchange or refund. Unless the Seller has made a mistake and sent the wrong item(s) or the item differs significantly from the item description, the Buyer must pay for return postage. The Seller reserves the right to decide whether to exchange an item of refund the Buyer. If approved, a refund will be credited to the original purchaser's credit card or PayPal account (however they originally paid) and in most cases will not include the original postage/shipping cost.
