CAMPFIRE Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Black & Orange
The Campfire Aboriginal design mat in earthy orange and black is designed by Indigenous artist Angela Marr-Grogan. Angela is a Birpai/Biripi woman, with connections to the Dunghutti and Worimi people on the NSW mid north coast. This design showcases the campfire as a meeting place, as well as a source of warmth and cooking.
The Campfire design is based on the gathering of individuals around a central meeting space to share dreaming stories. This imagery makes this mat popular in childcare centres, schools or for family gatherings – anywhere you want your own ‘tribe’ to connect and collaborate. As a school mat, use Campfire for group time, helping children arrange themselves in a circle for listening or sharing.
Available in three colour combinations, which represent connection to the land, Marr-Grogan’s design reminds us of the importance of sharing stories when it comes to understanding one’s own, or other people’s, cultural heritage.
Recycled Mats works in consultation with Indigenous artists to create authentic, ethically produced Aboriginal design mats that celebrate cultural diversity and are culturally appropriate for use within and outside their communities.
Our Indigenous design floor coverings are easy to look after too. Spills wipe off with ease whilst heavier soiling can be hosed off. Roll up your mat for storage or transportation as you move from home to the park, or from your lunch break to a study session.
Campfire Aboriginal design recycled mats in orange and black invite you to celebrate culture and the planet anywhere, anytime.

Circle matBy: Christine cussen on 13 September 2017Just love it and the lightness surprised me but it's great because we can easily take it outside and have story time in the sun. The kids love that it's reversible too. It started s great discussion about the environment, and reusing and recycling plastic too.
Campfire MatBy: Debbie Gaudie on 21 August 2017I purchased this mat for our work space in the main office. We are having culture bought to the office and this mat is a perfect addition to this experience. Being able to support such a worthy cause has made staff feel more conscious about the environment. I would readily purchase again should the need arise.
