Play mat? Camping mat? Floor covering for your beach picnic or market stall? If you’re looking for a sturdy rug that’s hardwearing but also stylish, choose a contemporary Indigenous design mat from Recycled Mats.

The Meeting Place Aboriginal design recycled mat in rich red and white is all about people coming together to talk. It can be used as a reading mat, play mat, camping mat or anywhere you want to gather friends and family to share games, food or conversation. It's one of our many popular group time mats for schools and kindies as the design lends itself to helping children choose a symbol to sit on, facing the centre.  

Made from 95% recycled materials, Meeting Place mats invite us to celebrate culture as well as conservation. The innovative recycled plastic used to create our mats is easy to clean, comfortable to sit on and UV treated to resist colour fading.

Dean Jakamara Briscoe is a respected Australian Indigenous artist from the Anmatyerre, Central Desert, region. He’s a professional artist and owner of Anmatyerre Arts and Crafts. In Meeting Place, he depicts people sitting around a central campfire, gathering to discuss the day’s business.

Conversations about ceremony, the landscape and home life traditionally took place around a campfire. Nowadays, a campfire might still serve as a warming, welcoming discussion site, or we may substitute the fireside with the kitchen table or back deck. Your Meeting Place reversible, recycled mat will be a handy addition to any of these spaces as a comfortable and long lasting ground cover. Pair it with a matching cushion for added comfort and style, indoors or outdoors. 

Every Aboriginal mat commissioned by Recycled Mats is developed in close consultation with communities, and features images that are culturally-appropriate for sharing. Meeting Place can be used to invite discussion about many topics, including culture, family life and Indigenous symbols in art.  

Meeting Place Aboriginal design recycled mats in warm red and grey provide cool or cosy ground cover for any occasion, from the classroom to the campsite.

Great to see that all our plastic waste is going t

By: on 24 May 2017
I bought a large mat to cover up worn out areas in our carpet. It looks great - bright, attract designs, and smooth shiny texture. You'd never know it is there to cover up worn threads underneath. I'm particularly pleased that it is made from recycled plastic, especially if this contributes to reducing the horrendous burden of plastic waste.
