The Aboriginal peoples of Australia traversed hundreds of kilometers of the continent. In place of maps, they composed rhythmic songs whose tunes mapped out the contours of the land. These songlines, also called dreaming tracks, carried them safely across the Australian desert and home again. The Songline Collection is inspired by the twists and turns of these melodies. Because everyone’s journey is individual, color choices and how you combine them, allow you to create out of any one of these patterns a dreaming track that is very specifically yours. It will be great to take along on your own personal journey.
