TURTLE JOURNEY Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Blue & Green
1.8 x 2.7m
The Turtle Journey Aboriginal design recycled mat in oceanic green and blue is a tranquil design, ideal for use as a meditation mat, camping mat or play mat. In our mid-size, it is 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.
The Perfect Souvenir - Recycled Plastic Mats Australia
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 striking turtle imagery will make a big visual impact in an office foyer or become the talking point of your living room or outdoor area. The Turtle Journey motif is also available on an indoor/outdoor cushion cover.
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.
Match your mat with a set of Aboriginal design door mats to welcome friends to your home or school, or a handy beach shelter for safe and comfortable outdoor fun. From the kindy playground to the campsite, sports event or market site, your Turtle Journey floor mat provides durable ground cover.

Deck reviverBy: Colette Cohen on 19 May 2018This beautiful rug has brought back life to my sad wooden deck! It provides a safe play space for my crawling bubs. It also reinforces the Aboriginal nature of my service. Love it. Easy clean.
