Most of the Aboriginal designs printed by M&S Textiles have a Dreamtime story to tell. According to Aboriginal mythology, dreamtime is the time when the world was dark. There was nothing on earth. Soil was soft, their forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil and started building most of the requirement for their future generations; e.g. they built mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, light gardens and many more.
The Dreamtime is not a religion or cult; it is the way of living or a philosophy of living. Body painting, corroboree, men’s business, women’s business etc. are strictly obeyed by the Aboriginal people.
