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 floor mat comes in vibrant violet 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, such as car tyres and PET bottles, you can celebrate culture whilst doing the right thing for the planet.

Ify Refini Duley is inspired by our planet, too, along with all 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 violet and white colour combination evokes balance, creativity, dignity, independence, individualism, justice, luxury, magic, meditation, truth and wisdom. Why not pair your rug with some comfy multicultural design cushions to relax, indoors or outdoors?

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?

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. Add a handy portable picnic table to your beach pack to enjoy dining under the sun or the stars. 

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