Reconciliation is about bringing people together, something Aboriginal artist Angela Marr-Grogan is passionate about. This stylish but meaningful Aboriginal mat comes in our ‘medium’ size - small enough for easy storage, but big on encouraging friends or family to gather for a yarn.

Marr-Grogan uses art to motivate stronger ties between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community. In Reconciliation, concentric circles symbolise community and organisations, whilst layered dot work represents people coming together to improve and build closer relationships.

Each of the Indigenous mats commissioned by Recycled Mats features images that are culturally-appropriate for sharing, sitting on or walking over. Angela draws inspiration from her identity as a Birpai/Biripi woman, with connections to the Dunghutti and Worimi people on the NSW mid north coast, and this design was developed with those affiliations in mind.

The Reconciliation mat is created using 95% recycled plastics, making it easy to clean, hard wearing and fade resistant. Celebrate cultural diversity while you enjoy your indoor story mat or outdoor camping rug from Recycled Mats. The Reconciliation design is popular as a group time mat for kindies and schools, helping children learn to sit in a circle to listen and share. Or pair it with a handy beach shelter for a relaxing day at the beach!

Reconciliation Aboriginal mats in black, brown and white are large enough to enjoy with friends, but small enough for easy cleaning and transporting. Choose an authentic, stylish Indigenous design for your home, office or classroom today!

By: on 5 December 2016
I've now purchased 2 of these, this one is such a symbolic design. Reconciliation is everybody's business. My 6 year old loves this mat, we have it perfectly placed in front of bookcases, he respectfully sits on one of the Circular Design Features and reads quietly

Plastic material

When I received our reconciliation mat we loved the pattern and colour but didn't realise it was a plastic type material as was going to put it in our lounge. Probably due to me misreading the advert. We've put it on our patio now. Glad we're supporting people making them tho.

My reading spot!

By: on 24 October 2016
I purchased a couple of you mats a few months back and can only say that everyone who sees them loves them. The Reconcilaition one is my favourite because as soon as I put it on the floor (formerly a coffee table and rectangular rug were in that spot) my 6 year old son sat in the centre and said “Mummy this is going to be my special reading spot”

Hi Recycled Mat people, I am the very proud owner of Reconciliation by Angela Marr-Grogan in my studio workplace. EVERY client that see's Angela's wonderful design and the quality of the material used to create the mat are amazed. Everyone loves the mat! It has made my warehouse cement floor look welcoming and creates a space to sit, talk and relax around a great piece of art that could be on anyones wall. We love our Reconciliation mat and rate it 5 stars. Congratulations on such a wonderful idea. Warmest regards Cher
