BILADURANG Platypus Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Purple & Black
1.5 x 2.1m
The platypus is a truly unique Australian creature, much loved in our art and storytelling. The Biladurang Australia design recycled mat in trendy purple and black celebrates this curious animal in a creative, Indigenous inspired motif.
The Biladurang mat is popular as a camping mat, classroom floor covering or for sitting on at outdoor events. Compact in size, it’s ideal as a souvenir of your Australian travels and is loved by children as a play mat or picnic space. Why not match it with a handy beach shelter for outdoor fun?
Aboriginal artist Wallamarra Elliot is behind this energetic design. From Wiradjuri country, in central New South Wales, he is a visual artist, tattoo artist and proud dad. Tapping into his Indigenous heritage, Elliot reminds us of our connections to flora and fauna, and the preciousness of water in this lively image.
The Biladurang mat is ideal in the classroom as a fun and engaging conversation starter for topics including Indigenous languages, nature and conservation. Use it at home to brighten up a playroom or fold it up for the car if you’re heading to the beach.
Like all indoor/outdoor cultural rugs from Recycled Mats, the Biladurang mat is easy to clean and care for. Made from 95% recycled plastics, dust, sand or food spills wipe away with ease. These mats can be hosed down for heavier soiling and folded or rolled up
