TURTLE JOURNEY Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Blue & White
1.8 x 2.7m
Turtle Journey is a tranquil design, ideal for use as a meditation mat, camping mat or play mat. This Aboriginal design recycled mat comes in our mid-size, making it compact enough to fold up for transporting but large enough to gather your family or class group for a yarn or a meal.
Helen Price is a Queensland-based Indigenous artist, from Darumbal country. Her Turtle Journey design speaks of the real life migration pattern of turtles, who travel hundreds of miles for the breeding season, but always return. The turtle never forgets where it comes from and nothing can keep it from coming home. “There is something inside, in its soul, that knows the way,” says the artist. It is similar to the journey back to country, where your soul is at home. It’s this literal and figurative journey that Price had in mind when she created Turtle Journey.
This mat is ideal as a souvenir of your Australian travels or as a discussion starter for multicultural early learning centres or community groups. The intense blue and white, striking turtle imagery will make a big visual impact in an office foyer or beach shopfront. Match this mat with an eye-catching cushion in a matching design and colour for a living room or outdoor area talking point!
Like all the authentic, Indigenous design play mats, camping mats and classroom mats available from Recycled Mats, Turtle Journey is easy to clean and care for. Made from 95% recycled plastics, dust, sand or food spills wipe away with ease, making them equally useful in the home or in public settings – indoors and outdoors.

My beautiful Turtle MatBy: Robyn Fallshaw on 25 March 2017I am always very wary of buying on line, as the colours in photos can be so deceptive. My Turtle Journey mat is exactly as it looks in the photo, and I absolutely love it. Just need some warm weather now for the last few wrinkles to drop out.
Fantastic!By: Natasha Bell on 2 March 2017Such an awesome product! An ease to transport due to its light weight, great to keep clean and a beautiful design. Had lots of comments and questions from people passing by when I've been using it down the beach. Always recommend you guys!
Super happyBy: Kev on 29 January 2017G'day guys, I'm very pleased with my purchase, the rugs are perfect for my outdoor area, I am thinking about getting another to complete my area. Very happy with the service I received from all the people I dealt with,
Turtle JourneyBy: Julie Ladley on 27 January 2017I purchased my the turtle journey mat because I loved the design, colour and size of it. I found out about your products through my sister and my mother who each own one of these mats. I love them! They're hard-wearing and durable without being uncomfortable and come in a weight that makes them perfect for the park or beach because they tend to stay in place when the wind blows, unlike a towel or picnic rug.
