CAMPFIRE Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Black, Brown & White
The Campfire Aboriginal design mat in earthy brown, black and white comes from talented Aboriginal artist Angela Marr-Grogan’s range. Angela has been painting for over 10 years and is a Birpai/Biripi woman, with connections to the Dunghutti and Worimi people on the NSW mid north coast. This design symbolises the importance of the campfire as a meeting place, as well as a source of warmth and nourishment.
The concept behind the Campfire design is a gathering of tribes, coming together around a central point to reconnect and share dreaming stories. What better way to gather your kindy kids for group time? Marr-Grogan’s beautiful imagery makes this rug design appealing as a childcare mat or classroom story space thanks to the handy circular design. Choose this sturdy, comfortable mat for anywhere you want your own ‘tribe’ to come together and connect.
Available in three colour combinations which represent connection to country, Marr-Grogan’s design reminds us of the joy and mutual understanding to be found in listening to each other’s stories.
"As an Aboriginal artist, I am inspired and driven by the depth of Aboriginal culture and my place within it,” Marr-Grogan has said. With this in mind, Recycled Mats works in consultation with communities to create authentic, ethically produced Indigenous design mats that celebrate cultural diversity.
Caring for your mat is easy too, as these impressive floor coverings are created from recycled, UV-treated plastics. Spills wipe off with ease, whilst heavier soiling can be hosed off. Roll up your mat for storage or transportation as you move from home to the beach, or from story time to lunch time.
Reconciliation Aboriginal design mats in brown, black and white are an ideal way to celebrate culture in day to day life. Order online today!

campfire aboriginal design recycled mateBy: Alison Fitzsimmons on 12 February 2017The mat arrived promptly and with delight it was unwrapped and placed on the floor for the prep children to discover when they returned to the classroom. The children rushed over to the mat and sat on it immediately! It is such a welcome addition to the room. It is large enough for the class of 23 children to sit on in comfort. It is truly a magnificent purchase! It has become a much loved and treasured meeting space.
