Ancestral Connectedness is the name and the concept behind this eye-catching mat design by global artist Ify Refini Duley. Drawing on her Malay, Balinese and Melanesian roots, she uses art to invite discussion about our place in the universe. This mandala design floormat comes in striking black and white (see below for other colour combinations) and brings a spiritual, multicultural vibe to your home, office or classroom.

Like all the durable, comfortable floor coverings from Recycled Mats, the Ancestral Connectedness mat is hard-wearing and easy to clean, without compromising on ‘on trend’ design. Made from 95% recycled plastics, you can celebrate culture whilst doing the right thing for the planet.

 

Cultural Mats made from Recycled Plastic

 

Ify Refini Duley is inspired by our planet, along with all of the unseen and unspoken dimensions of our human experience. Sacred geometry is key to the mandala concept, according to the artist, who reminds us we are all “cosmic diagrams of limitless potential”.

With this in mind, the Ancestral Connectedness mat is perfect to facilitate meditation in a tranquil space at home, or in the chaos of a classroom or community centre where a designated relaxation site is essential. According to the artist, the black and white colour combination evokes mystery, deep thinking, magic and individuality.

Mandalas can be a tool for reconnecting with oneself and increasing self-awareness. They are often used in adult colouring books for mindfulness exercises. Why not extend this to the classroom, encouraging children to reflect on the shapes or trace the lines as they focus their energies? Match your rug with some comfortable cultural design cushions to enhance relaxation, or buy a mixed set of rugs to colour code your reading, resting or play spaces? 

Ancestral Connectedness is also popular as a camping mat or beach mat. The circular design makes it ideal as a central meeting space or for sharing food, whilst the innovative plastic material means sand and dust brush away with ease.

Choose an Ancestral Connectedness mandala design floormat in black and white for a calming, inspirational floor covering for home, work or travel.

I am thoroughly impressed with the mat that was chosen for my wife's Mother's Day present from the kids. It is so handy to take in the car. Everyone should have one. Thank you.

Who says you have to have daggy mats when you have

Gorgeous design with child proof qualities, my son literally spilled chocolate milk all over the one in his bedroom, took it outside and hosed it off! Amazing!
