CAMPFIRE Aboriginal Design Mat - Black Brown White 2.4m
The Campfire Aboriginal design mat and Ancestral Connectedness Mandala design recycled plastic mats are in a terrific value set of 5. They are a very popular classroom mat package for those looking for a cross-cultural, seamless approach to your room or centre.
Cleverly created to express Australian Aboriginal symbolism & Hindi & Buddhist symbolism, they are also perfect for organising students into a seated circle for storytime or games.
The Campfire Aboriginal design mat comes from talented artist Angela Marr-Grogan’s range. Angela has been painting for over 10 years and is a Birrbay woman with connections to the Dhanggatti and Warrimay people on NSW mid-north coast. This design symbolises the importance of the campfire as a meeting place, as well as a source of warmth and nourishment.
The Mandala Ancestral Connectedness mat design is created by the super lovely Ify Refini Duley who draws on her Melanesian, Malay and Balinese background for inspiration. Ify is inspired by our planet along with unseen and unspoken dimensions of our human experience. Sacred geometry is key to the mandala concept which reminds us that we are all "cosmic diagrams of limitless potential".
Special Package Suitable for Schools, Libraries, Sports and Community Groups
This special deal is perfect for schools, libraries, sports groups or community centres who need plenty of space for sitting inside or outside.

The concept behind the Campfire design is a gathering of tribes, coming together around a central point to reconnect and share dreaming stories. Marr-Grogan’s beautiful imagery makes this design appealing as a childcare mat, classroom story space or family camping mat. Choose this sturdy, comfortable mat for any place, for your own ‘tribe’ to come together and connect.
Available in various colour combinations which represent a connection to country, Marr-Grogan’s design reminds us of the joy and mutual understanding to be found in listening to each other’s stories. This economical set of 5 includes a mixed combination of vibrant, reversible colours, a mix of the Campfire design and also the Ancestral Connectedness design.
"As an Aboriginal artist, I am inspired and driven by the depth of Aboriginal culture and my place within it,” Marr-Grogan has said. With this in mind, Recycled Mats works in consultation with communities to create authentic, ethically produced Indigenous design mats that celebrate cultural diversity. Feel confident as a cultural educator by using school mats or picnic mats that truly represent their communities of origin.
Easy Care Plastic Mats
Caring for your mat is easy too, as these impressive floor coverings are created from recycled, UV-treated plastics. Spills wipe off with ease, whilst heavier soiling can be hosed off or brushed with a soft broom. Fold up your mat for storage or transportation as you move from home to the beach, or from story time to lunchtime.
This range of cross-cultural designed mats is an ideal way to celebrate culture in day to day life.
Please note: The colours of the mats in your set will be determined by stock levels at the time of order and may not be exactly as shown in the images. Design and size of mats will, however, be the same.
