FAMILY IS CENTRE Aboriginal Designed Charity Mat, Yellow & Green
2.7m Diameter, Profits donated to charity
This Recycled Plastic Mat is a special one. Designed by our beloved local Indigenous Artist Christine Slabb, this Family Centre recycled plastic picnic mat has been created as part of a community collaboration with the Family Centre in Tweed Heads.
Supporting local Indigenous and non-Indigenous families
100% of the profits of this mat are being donated to The Family Centre in Tweed to help them with their work supporting local Indigenous and non-Indigenous families.
This grey and yellow design features Family as the centrepiece, the centre of ones being.
The message and story of the mat is that family relationships and connections provide and uphold strength, honour and respect. These strains of family connection flow deep within our soul, captivated by love.
"Family is the centre, the centre is our family"
The 2.7 metre mat is the ideal mat for anyone wanting to embrace Indigenous Aboriginal culture and the deep messages this culture shares. It's also the perfect mat for those with a social conscience who want to know that their purchases are helping to make a difference in the world.
Family Centre is a unique Aboriginal recycled mat. Enjoy it as a camping mat, play mat or anywhere you want to bring people together.
