Why buy a siapo or recycled mat?
Siapo & Recycled Floor Mats at Their Best!
Looking after a traditional carpet or mat can be a gargantuan ( that means "massive" for people like me :) ) effort – they can’t withstand the wear and tear of a household with li’l ones and most importantly, they do not contribute in our global quest for a cleaner, safer environment.
Spills leave a perpetual stain, fibers may sometimes cause allergies and cleaning can become a chore. Sometimes, you just want to stash it in the storeroom and put it out of its misery.
BUT, it’s time for you to take a break and get introduced to a whole new range of floor mats that will leave you and your feet feeling relaxed and good – contemporary Siapo & recycled rubber outdoor and floor mats.
Siapo is a fine tissue like cloth made from the bark of the mulberry tree and is a symbol of many cultures in the South Pacific. Many South Pacific homes used these mats, but their tendency to crumble when wet led to them going out of use. We bring you the essence of Siapo made more versatile through the use of recycled materials (plastic bags, inners of cereal packets etc).
Our contemporary Siapo and recycled rubber floor mats are completely child friendly and resistant to spills and stains.
A quick wash with soapy water and short time on a washing line or fence will have them as clean and as good as new again. The beauty of these outdoor rubber mats is that they retain the original siapo mat design of a grid of squares containing a geometrical pattern, which reflects the cultural environment in which the mat was made – in this case Polynesia, New Zealand and Australia.
These floor mats, which come in contemporary Maori, Aboriginal, Torres Strait Island, Melanesian and Pacific Island designs, are made by the Indigenous people of New Zealand/Polynesia and Australia, with deep rooted links to both the Maori, Samoan, Tonga and Indigenous Australian cultures. With intricate detailing in design, these floor mats not only score high in the visual quotient, but also are reversible in design and can thus be placed on alternate sides as per your choice.
They are lightweight, tough and resilient as well, making it an excellent choice for play schools, camps, homes, stalls or any place with kids and adults too for that fact!
So even as your kids go on a fun spree around the house or child care centre, you don’t have to mentally groan about cleaning the floor mats! To order this revolutionary pièce de résistance www.recycledmats.com.au
