EUCALYPTUS FLOWER Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Light Pink & Dark Pink
Eucalyptus Flower is an impressive contemporary Aboriginal design recycled mat in fresh, floral shades of pink. Evoking the colourful blossoms of Australian native plants, designer Christine Slabb has created a spectacular mat motif ideal for use as a beach mat, classroom rug or play space.
This mat is one of our most in-demand choices for classrooms and daycare centres. Why? Because the 22 circles that surround this charming design are perfect for organising 22 little bottoms! Educators can encourage children to sit in a perfect circle for group time, story time, 'show and share', or any teaching experience. Why not try counting games using the dots and patterns to hold their attention while you prepare the next class activity?
Christine Slabb is an accomplished Indigenous artist and graphic designer from the Bundjalung people, on Australia’s east coast. In this image, she tells a story about the season from March to July when the lorikeets feast on eucalyptus flowers. This is a bird’s eye view, looking at the top of the flower as it bursts into life.
This lively image is now available on our popular indoor/outdoor plastic rugs. Made from recycled plastics, like PET drink bottles and shopping bags, our mats are environmentally responsible and ethically manufactured.
Perfect for high traffic areas like classrooms, living rooms or campsites, our mats are easy to clean and stunning to look at! Soft and durable, you can fold them up to move them from the playroom to the backyard at picnic time – or roll them up to pop in the caravan for your next camping trip. Sand and dust will simply brush off, while heavier dirt can be wiped up or hosed away.
Celebrate culture and the planet by choosing a contemporary Aboriginal design recycled mat in colourful shades of pink. Beach mat? Camping mat? Classroom mat? The choice is yours! Order online today!

Highly recommendedBy: Natalie on 30 November 2017This mat is stunning, and HUGE! So far we've taken it with us to the beach, the playground and the backyard picnic. Despite its size, it packs up easily. The carry bag makes it simple to transport. We've had MANY positive comments about it, and when people learn that its made from recycled plastic, they want to know where to buy their own. It's so nice to be able to share with friends and family at outdoor gatherings.
