The Roo Hunt Aboriginal design recycled mat symbolically presents the relationship between hunter and food. Kangaroo meat has been eaten for thousands of years and traditional hunting practices focused on the sustainability of the animal mob through respectful interaction with the environment.

Aboriginal artist Wallamarra Elliot, from Wiradjuri country, central New South Wales, created the Roo Hunt design. It reminds us of the importance of the cycle of life. The notion of harmony and balance is often forgotten in contemporary, mass production of food. Traditional hunting worked with the seasons and considered ‘mother nature’.

The large, round shape of this rug and the lively, reversible colour scheme makes it ideal as a school mat, inviting students to talk about animals, the environment and Indigenous symbols in art. Match it with one of the other group time mats available at Recycled Mats to bring culture into every classroom!

The striking colours and provocative subject matter will also make Roo Hunt a talking point in any home, office or community centre. Large, durable mats are useful as caravan mats or beach mats, too. Use it as a library story mat or meeting place at your outdoor sports event.

Made from 95% recycled plastics, Roo Hunt is easy to keep clean. Sand or food spills wipe away with ease. These mats can also be hosed down for heavier soiling, making them handy as arts and crafts mats for kindies.  

Celebrate cultural diversity with a bold mat design. Roo Hunt Aboriginal design recycled mats are available for order online, with delivery Australia-wide.

Special Place

By: on 25 October 2016
A simply beautiful mat. We are able to use it for small group yarn time or as a provocation for storytelling and traditional symbol work. Outside it is just the right size (manageable for small hands) to be taken under the trees for lunch times. It is also a perfect fit under our "tee-pee" where it provides a special place for children to gather. It's easily cleaned with soapy water and the double sided pattern provides alternative "aesthetic" value! Will definitely be purchasing more in future of this beautiful design!
