This is very typical of the Aboriginal fabric designs.

Aboriginal fabrics are designed by a group of native Australians known as Aboriginals.  They have been designing these patterns and fabrics for generation after generation and there is so much symbolism with each design.

They have an extremely limited distribution in the US.

Australian Aboriginal Designs arise from a heritage that goes back thousands of years.  Aboriginal “Dreaming Stories” are passed on from generation to generation and explain life and are central to their culture and relationship to the natural world.  Aboriginal art illustrates their “Dreaming Stories” with a series of symbolic motifs.  Each design has a story and historical significance. The abstract dot and circle designs, based on these stories, have become a trademark of the contemporary Aboriginal art movement,” HeartSong Quilts.

Here is some of the symbolism that has been used over the centuries:
