        This stunning recycled plastic mat is designed by local artist, Christine Slabb of the Bundjalung people

        Inspired by Joongarrabah - 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” or '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 also 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 'Garrima' cultural mats were a roaring success in the space, and we received lots of enquiries about them from visitors and spectators. We adore this addition to the Recycled Plastic Mats range and its modern take on ancient wisdom.

        Like the majority of our recycled plastic mats, 'Garrima' is a reversible mat, so you've two choices on how to display your mat on picnics, camping and caravan holidays, outings, and days on the beach. They are super lightweight and easy to store too. Check out our video on how to fold a round recycled plastic mat!

        Don't forget to include one of our best-selling picnic tables or perhaps some of our throw cushions. You'll be set for a fabulous day out.
