KORERO New Zealand Design Recycled Mat, Green & White
Korero is a Maori term for a meeting or discussion. What better place to engage your friends, family or students in conversation than a comfortable, eye-catching floormat? The Korero New Zealand design recycled mat in striking green and white makes an ideal space for talking, eating, playing or relaxing while you celebrate culture through art.
Like all the durable, comfortable floor coverings from Recycled Mats, the Korero mat is long-lasting and easy to maintain. Made from 95% recycled plastics, it is light weight for transportation and storage, and wipes clean with ease.
New Zealand artist Turumakina Duley created the impressive Korero design, which is also known as Ngaa Hau ee Wha – ‘the four winds’. Spoken about in many different cultural spaces, the image of the four winds evokes people coming from all directions to gather in pursuit of peace through ceremony, celebration and learning. The artist draws on his ancestry of Tuhoe, Ngaiterangi and Ngati Awa origins to produce cultural imagery for tattoos and other visual art forms.
Korero is a popular mat design for cultural centres, classrooms or for camping or beach travel. The circular shape inspires connectedness and sharing of games, conversations or food. Celebrate your own culture as you relax on the mat, or use this design as a teaching tool about world cultures.

Wonderful GiftBy: Katrina on 24 January 2017My siblings and I bought this mat for my sister for her birthday and she's thrilled with it! Loves the colour and has used it numerous times at the beach now (with a sun shelter setup towards the back) and it has worked a treat. Many comments and questions from passers-by who were impressed! It's a good size for her family of five (three children under nine.) Highly recommended!
Love It!By: Shannon on 27 October 2016I absolutely love my mat. I only got it today and it arrived just as we were off for a play date in the park. Needless to say all the mums in my squad want one. Will absolutely be my go to gift to give friends and family for all occasions especially baby showers.
