This recycled plastic mat is by our beloved local artist, Christine Slabb of Bundjalung
Joongarrabah is a peak that overlooks the Tweed and Gold Coast Region. This iconic landmark is a vital part of the local cultural landscape.
For many generations, this special place has been significant in the teaching of “Garrima” respect.
2018 Commonwealth Games Design
In collaboration with Recycled Mats, this mat design was part of a specially commissioned series for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018. It celebrates the coming together of nations from across the globe to partake in sport, culture, art and entertainment.
The Garrima design was created to promote the beauty, culture and traditions of the local Indigenous people of the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 team was instrumental in their work to highlight Indigenous culture across the entire competition, with Indigenous art and design featured on uniforms, on the Games Mascot Borobi, on the flags, posters and signage, and in homewares and interior design in the Commonwealth Games 2018 Festivals & Events spaces.
We are honoured to have played a part in this process, and are thrilled that our collaborations with local artists were highlighted in such a public space.
Our eye-catching Garrima recycled plastic mats were featured in the "Jarjum" (meaning, "All our children") Learning & Play Space at the Commonwealth Games, and also in the VIP Green Room. Designed by local Fingal artist Christine Slabb, the recycled plastic mats were a roaring success in the space.

The Garrima is a reversible mat in teal and white, which means you've two choices on how to display your mat for picnics, camping and caravan holidays, outings, and days on the beach.
