MANUFACTURER: M & S Textiles Australia
AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL ARTIST: AUDREY MARTIN NAPANANGKA is a very well-known artist who has designed a number of works printed on textile materials for M & S Textiles Australia.
THE PALETTE: shades of muted burgundy, brown, rust, green, white, blue, black
THE DESIGN: In desert areas of Australia it is difficult to find water. 90% of water comes from underground and Audrey's experience in the arid regions of Australia's outback helps her to find drinking water and waterholes. The long curved lines of the design indicate the movement of water in the area. The dotted lines and smaller circles indicate various soakages, broken roads, sands, etc.
Many Aboriginal people I've in open areas near the bushes and water has been their most crucial commodity for living in and around the bush. Fortunately most Aboriginal people living in these areas know how and where to find water and have a good knowledge of waterholes, ponds, river water, billabongs, underground water, etc.
Aboriginal ceremonies are usually held near the waterholes.
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 after you have already paid, we will immediately credit the overage back to you.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING delivery times vary depending on the destination, Customs, and local postal service. Orders usually arrive in 10 -21 business 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.
