Australian Aboriginal fabric, Caming Ground Magenta by Charlie Egan
Priced and sold per 1/2 yard. Caming Ground Magenta by Charlie Egan, 100% cotton, 44/45 inches wide. Charlie Egan's Caming Ground documents a corroboree (an assembly of Aborigines to celebrate events of importance) with the middle large tent as the main meeting place; smaller tents are for attendees to take rests if needed. The U shaped motifs in the main tent represent elders, who would lead tribal discussions; other U shapes illustrate men, women, and children who are taking rests or quietly walking. Dotted lines are the paths for people's movement. Larger dots represent bush food and waterholes. The wonderful hues and dynamic, organic shapes make this multi-colored Aboriginal designed fabric ideal for quilting, home decor and wearable art. M&S Textiles Australia was established to promote Aboriginal designs to the quilting community. The company pays each Aborigine artist a fair market wage and licenses these original indigenous art designs, guaranteeing authenticity.
