'Come Celebrate - Bush' is the epitome of culture meets nature
If you love Indigenous designs and the calming tones of the Aussie bush, this 1.8m square mat is for you. It can provide a place to picnic and relax out in nature, or bring the outdoors in for a practical and inspiring spot for indoor craft activities or story time.
The 'Come Celebrate' mat in the 'Bush' colourway was designed by respected Australian Aboriginal artist De Greer Yindimincarlie, of the Wiradjuri Nation in central New South Wales, and her mats designs each have their own story...
"Come and sit with me and tell me a yarn, let me celebrate your life with you. Celebrate all you have, all you’ve experienced, and let’s be grateful for all of it. So, come sit with me and tell me your yarn," says De.
Like all our recycled outdoor mats, it is made from innovative, tightly woven recycled plastic. Although soft to walk or sit on, it is also hard-wearing and super easy to clean; Simply give it a shake to remove loose dirt or sand, or it can be hosed down after a messy picnic lunch or art activity! Read more here about how easy our mats are to clean. Being one of our more compact mat sizes, 'Come Celebrate' is lightweight for folding and carrying, so it’s easily transferable from a quiet reading corner at kindy, to being tucked away in its included carry bag for a guided bush picnic!
Being reversible, this design gives you two looks for the price of one, and also extends the life of your mat. Click here for an interesting read about teaching Aboriginal culture in primary school.
