BOOMERANG Aboriginal Design Recycled Door Mat
45 x 70cm
Boomerang is a stunning Aboriginal design recycled door mat for your home or office. It depicts two overlapping boomerangs, symbolising the notion of a safe journey as you leave and a warm welcome when you return.
The boomerang is a well-known traditional hunting tool with Indigenous Australian origins. It remains popular for sport and entertainment purposes thanks to the unique design, which makes it return to its origin when thrown a particular way.
This contemporary design was created by Lee Townsend, an Australian Aboriginal artist with roots in Dharug and Kamilaroi country, New South Wales. She is an educator who believes in using art to start a conversation about cultural understanding.
Like all the authentic, Indigenous design mats available from Recycled Mats, Boomerang is light to store or carry and easy to care for. Made from recycled rubber, dust and food spills simply wipe away. All of our door mats are also treated with Stain Guard before they arrive at your door.
The Boomerang design doormat is brightly coloured to match any décor or to bring a splash of colour (and culture!) to a classroom to be used as an art tool. Use this design with kids to generate discussions about art, colour and Indigenous symbolism.
With its compact size, Boomerang is a great souvenir of your Australian travels or gift for international family and friends. Why not use it as a caravan mat or door mat for your tent? Be reminded of where you’re going and where you’ve been as you’re travelling. A vibrant doormat is also a guaranteed conversation starter in the home or office with a generous and heartfelt message.
