Historical Traces of Quilting Fabric in Australia
There is a great diversity of culture in
Aboriginal Australia. One example of this is the
number of original language groups, 250 at the
time of first settlement. One hundred and sixty
are now extinct and only twenty are expected to
survive (Walsh, 1993). Aboriginal dresses
fabric is showing strong signs of survival in the
art market that has been dominated for decades by
bark painting and more recently by acrylic
painting on canvas. Quilting fabric in
Australia is a well-known technique in the
western world but for the Indigenous people of
Australia, it is a recent addition to their
traditional art practices such as string and
basket making. How did the fabric manufacturer
come in the picture at Melbourne? The first
western textile techniques were introduced to
Aboriginal people by aboriginal art fabric
suppliers who were also missionaries, teachers
and art advisers to encourage productive work and
money-earning capacity. Spinning, weaving,
dressmaking and crafts were taught from the 1930s
with a flourishing of creativity in the 1970s,
the heyday of the craft movement in Australia.
The present situation of aboriginal dresses
With the increasing of Victorian restrictions
moving to include mandatory face masks for the
general public and the ever-changing nature of
COVID-19 across Australia, we are all
experiencing strange and tough times right now.
At Clothing The Gap, were right here with
you!    For now, it doesnt look like the
requirement to wear a mask in public is going
anywhere any time soon. We wanted to create a
mask that speaks to your values and keeps you
looking fresh with any outfit with the reversible
2 in 1 design giving you two looks for the price
of one. We're proud that this mask is created
from the initial idea to a finished packaged
product within a 25km radius. This process begins
and is managed by an Aboriginal owned fabric
manufacturer in Melbourne and led social
enterprise working alongside local manufacturing
industries, with locally sourced fabric and
recyclable materials.
