The Water Dreaming Aboriginal design recycled mat in rich red wine and white is ideal as a reading spot, play space or just an eye-catching statement for your home or office décor.
Made from recycled materials, Water Dreaming is not only great for celebrating cultural diversity – it’s also great for our earth. The innovative recycled plastics we use to create our mats means they are easy to clean, comfortable, and cute to boot.
Water Dreaming Aboriginal design mats in warm red and white provide perfect outdoor ground cover for any occasion, from the classroom to the campsite. You can also take it inside, to the patio, or to a kids bedroom as a lego mat.
Designed by Aboriginal artist, Dean Jakamara Briscoe , Water Dreaming was designed to remind us of the fact that water is imperative to life everywhere. It is particularly noticeable in desert regions, where rain and full waterholes can transform an arid landscape within hours. Rain means new life.
Water Dreaming can be used in a classroom to invite discussion about many topics, including culture, nature, conservation and colour. Pair it with an educational game to extend multicultural learning or some comfy matching cushions for a relaxed reading corner.
