The Ultimate Teaching Tool

The Yarning Circle Aboriginal design recycled mat, in bright red and black, is a practical teaching tool whilst also looking amazing in any home, office or school. 

Designed by innovative Australian Aboriginal artist De Greer Yindimincarlie, of the Wiradjuri Nation in central New South Wales, this recycled plastic, reversible floor mat includes a range of different Aboriginal symbols. Can you see men and women? Children? Emu or kangaroo tracks? How about digging tools, boomerangs and coolamons? Introduce children to the world of storytelling through symbolism, which is a central part of Aboriginal art.

These mats are a great way to bring diversity education into the school or early learning environment in fun and engaging ways. Make cultural stories a part of everyday life by using these mats as story mats or eating places. Consider using them in conjunction with other mat sets, or resources such as the Little Black Game Pack (designed by the same artist) to enhance the learning experience by extending the group’s interest in symbols.

Durable and comfortable

Like all our recycled mats, The Yarning Circle is durable and easy to clean, as well as comfortable to sit on or walk on. The large size makes it a great space for gathering a class group or extended family, indoors or outdoors. Buy an individual mat, or try one of our great value mat packages to bring a multicultural vibe to your whole kindy or school. 

Importantly, every Indigenous design mat you buy from Recycled Mats has been created in consultation with Aboriginal artists and their communities. They feature authentic designs and symbols that are culturally appropriate for sharing in the wider community.

The Yarning Circle Aboriginal design recycled mat in popular red and black can be enjoyed in the home, office, classroom or anywhere you want to bring people together for a yarn!

Love it. Vibrant colour, pet hair just vacuums off. Meant to use it as a downstairs rug but too nice so it is in our lounge room.
