Recycled plastic indoor and patio mats have 100’s of indoor uses.
Our favourite indoor and patio mats can be found in our collection at Recycled Mats.
We considered a large number of options for manufacture in the early years of our business, and we are always on the lookout for better, more sustainable ways to do things. Doing so is part of our company goal of providing a quality, authentically designed product that supports Indigenous artists, while remaining affordable and well-made for customers.
Our indoor mats, constructed from UV-treated polypropylene made from recycled plastic bags, are ethically manufactured in China in family-owned factories.
Manufacturing in China also allows Recycled Mats to take hold of the latest technologies to create a sustainable product made from recycled materials. We love that our indoor mats are made in a way that supports and cares for the planet. This is vitally important to all of us at Recycled Mats.
Manufacturing in China allows us to take advantage of the competitive nature of business in China to demand the best quality products made in factories with ethical labour practices, streamlined production, and skilful outcomes. The speed at which the indoor and patio mats can be made and shipped ensures we can meet customer demand within appropriate timeframes, and this is important too.
Manufacturing offshore has benefits for the design community also. Less money spent on manufacture means more freedom to provide more advantageous payment arrangements to our local team members and artists.
The team at Recycled Mats work hard to ensure that everyone who participates in the creation of these plastic indoor and patio mats benefits in some way - directly through income and royalties, or indirectly through education, or further opportunity. Our commitment to employ Indigenous artists of a number of cultures in the design process is but one of a number of initiatives that make us really proud.
