A unique image, titled Reconciliation, encourages people to gather on this Aboriginal mat, large enough for groups of friends or family to enjoy a yarn.
Indigenous artist Angela Marr-Grogan is passionate about reconciliation and building strong relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community.
"As an Aboriginal artist, I am inspired and driven by the depth of Aboriginal culture and my place within it,” says Marr-Grogan. With this in mind, she has used inner and outer concentric circles to represent community and organisations, whilst layered dot work symbolises people coming together to improve and build closer relationships. The result is a meaningful, contemporary design equally at home in a hotel foyer or school library. Like all the sturdy indoor and outdoor rugs on offer at Recycled Mats, Reconciliation is perfect as a camping floor, caravan mat or picnic mat.
Angela draws inspiration from her identity as a Birrbay woman, with connections to the Dhanggatti and Warrimay people on the NSW mid-north coast. Every Aboriginal mat commissioned by Recycled Mats is developed in close consultation with communities and features images that are culturally-appropriate for sharing. Made from 95% recycled materials, the Reconciliation mat is not only a great outdoor mat for celebrating cultural diversity – but it’s also great for our earth. The innovative recycled plastics we use to create our recycled mats are easy to clean, comfortable to sit on and UV treated to resist colour fading. Bring a new cultural conversation into your classroom with a Reconciliation mat for group time. Why not pair it with educational games for diversity teaching? Reconciliation Aboriginal mat in black, brown and white with a large, bold and unique Indigenous motif, provide perfect indoor or outdoor ground cover for any occasion.

These mats are reversible. Photos show both sides of the same mat. Mat colours may differ slightly from the images shown due to the different inks used in individual print runs.
All our floor mats have been made to the best attainable standards from UV treated recycled polypropylene. Follow our guide to mat maintenance for cleaning and storage instructions. Our floor mats and playmats are suitable for indoor and outdoor use, but extensive exposure to sun or rain will lead to fading and deterioration over time.

Bayanami PSBy: Donna Ison on 18 February 2020We purchased these mats for our K-2 eating spaces. The 3m x 3m mats fit 20 children comfortably. The mats hose down easily and dry quickly in the sun. They are so lightweight that our senior students are able to fold and put them away with ease. Highly recommend all the products. The colours are vibrant and engaging for all students.
Great mat!By: Patrice Andriske on 17 February 2020I love my new mat, I love the story of how it is made, I love the back story about the company and to be able to see the artists and know their story is awesome! Ordering was easy and the delivery was super fast! I bought the mat for an undercover outdoor area and it is perfect! Easy to clean, not bothered by the weather; I couldn't be happier!!
WonderfulBy: Phoebe on 10 December 2017I've wanted this for ages and finally got my wish, it really is beautiful and my daughter loves playing on it in the backyard.
Great size & designBy: Leslie on 30 November 2017The best part about this mat is its size. The circular shape makes it stand out as well. Unlike other purchases I have made on the site where the colour of the mat purchased varied HUGELY in real life, this mat is photographed true to form.
Perfect matBy: Kay Rodgers on 2 November 2017The reconciliation mat is perfect for my deck area. This is my second purchase from recycled mats and I highly recommend them.
