The popular 'Gum Leaves & Waterholes' design is perfect for brightening up both indoor and outside spaces
It's a contemporary Indigenous design, made with woven recycled plastic to create a reversible and portable mat. Perfect for protecting your patio or deck, but also makes for a great travelling or camping companion where additional ground needs to be covered.
This design is also very popular for use in educational settings - both as a practical tool (portable circle time, outdoor crunch 'n sip sessions, or perhaps sports carnivals), but also as a way of facilitating exposure to Indigenous culture.

Indigenous artist Caitlin Trindall designed this artwork with inspiration from her favourite camping spot in Burraga Dam, NSW where she visits with loved ones. Caitlin believes there is no better feeling than sinking your bare feet into the sand, dipping into the freshwater dam, and closing your eyes to listen to the sound of rustling gum leaves in the breeze. Burraga Dam is a place where Caitlin goes to feel refreshed, as the peaceful surroundings leave her feeling relaxed and free.
The design of this mat includes iconic features of Burraga Dam, with a pattern of gum leaves and waterholes that will leave you feeling connected to nature. Our entire range of outdoor mats is ethically made with recycled materials, so you can have confidence when buying sustainably. They are weather-resistant, naturally waterproof, lightweight and compact. When all is done, simply hose it down, leave it to dry for a few minutes in the shade, and fold it back into its handy carry bag ready or your next event or destination.
Pair with one of our unique picnic tables for the ultimate outdoor setup, or perhaps one or two of our sand-free, quick-drying towels (also made from recycled materials) for a day at the beach or to save precious space when travelling. We are constantly adding to our range of sustainable homeware products, so you'll never be stuck for gift ideas, or ways to make your outdoor/indoor space a bit more personal.
Also available in other sizes and colourways. Check out the entire 'Gum Leaves & Waterholes' range here.
