My sister just recently returned from New Zealand. Whenever she travels I ask her to bring back fabric unique to the area. She visited a great fabric/craft store called Cushla's Village Fabrics in Auckland and found this for me! I love it. I also have some great fabric she brought to me from her trip to Africa a few years ago. I will post photos of that sometime soon. Maybe someday I will get to travel somewhere fun and pick up fabric of my own!?
