The Campfire Aboriginal design mat in striking black, orange and white is designed by Indigenous artist Angela Marr-Grogan. Angela is a Birpai/Biripi woman, with connections to the Dunghutti and Worimi people on the NSW mid north coast. This design showcases the campfire as a meeting place, as well as a source of warmth and cooking.
A Campfire mat is perfect as a comfortable, educational classroom mat thanks to the evocative symbols used in the motif. The Campfire design is based on the gathering of individuals around a central meeting space to share dreaming stories. Invite your children to find a symbol to sit on and start a discussion about art, culture and traditions. Match this group time mat with one of our mat packages, including sets of door mats or other indoor/outdoor designs suitable as school mats, to bring diversity into any educational space.
Available in several sizes and three colour combinations which represent connection to the land, Marr-Grogan’s design reminds us of the importance of sharing stories when it comes to understanding one’s own, or other people’s, cultural heritage.
Recycled Mats works in consultation with Indigenous artists to create authentic, ethically produced Aboriginal design mats that celebrate cultural diversity and are culturally appropriate for use within and outside their communities.
Our Indigenous design floor coverings are easy to look after, too. 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 park, or from your lunch break to a study session.
Campfire Aboriginal design classroom mats in orange, black and white invite you to celebrate culture and the planet anywhere, anytime.
