Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Red & White

Journeys is an Australia design recycled mat, in striking black and white – great for home, office, or classroom use.
This mat by Australian Aboriginal artist De Greer Yindimincarlie, of the Wiradjuri Nation in central New South Wales, depicts tribal journeys between campsites. It features symbols including men, women, campsites, and travel routes – with different communities separate but interconnected.
Embed Aboriginal culture by placing these mats around your childcare centres, schools, and preschools. Children can be immersed in the symbology of Aboriginal language and storytelling, leading to empathy and understanding for cultures, lifestyles, and values different from their own. You can also use it for hopscotch games, transition times, picnics, group excursions, and on assembly days as comfortable seating.
The Journeys mat is made from recycled polypropylene plastic from plastic bags, plastic drink bottles, and medicine bottles. The mat is soft, yet sturdy, easy to carry from indoors to out, and easy to clean. Just brush it, wipe it, or hose it down before you pack it away. Use indoors as an area mat to create learning spaces, or to style your home. Use outdoors on the deck, the patio, to create an outdoor living nook, or to cover unsightly concrete. Fold it to store.
The Journeys mat is reversible too, giving you more bang for your buck. Pair it with a selection of our Aboriginal cushions to really set the scene and create even more comfort.
Journeys is a unique Aboriginal design recycled mat that you can use as a picnic mat, a classroom mat, a camping mat, or a playmat for kids. Buy now in black and white.
