A FIRST - Authentic Indigenous Designs on Recycled Polypropylene Rugs and Mats

Designed in Australia, the recycled polypropylene rugs and mats feature the artwork of Australian Indigenous, New Zealand Maori, and Pacific Islander artists.

Owner and founder of the company Recycled Mats, JJ works with each individual artist to bring their vision to life. All artists aim to share their culture and stories through their artwork designs. Manufactured offshore in China and using plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill, recycled mats come in all kinds of sizes, shapes and colours. All recycled mats are reversible, meaning you get two colour choices for the price of one too. However, the consistent theme is that all of JJ's recycled mats feature a stunning, colourful, and eye-catching design that tells a story of local culture.  

 polypropylene mats have so many uses

A Plastic Mat that Loves You Back!

Importantly, recycled polypropylene mats are not just nice to look at – the plastic mat is soft and comfortable, hard-wearing, mould resistant, easy to pack up, and easy to clean. These lightweight mats are a cinch to carry, and cleaning them is no hassle. Just use a broom or a dustpan brush to sweep sand and grass off the recycled mats. Another option is to hose the recycled mats down after each use – recycled mats are quick dry. (You might like to read our blog post on how to care for your mat - we promise it's a breeze!) Recycled mats fold up to fit inside a carry case, making them easy to store until next time you need them too. Recycled mats keep you clean and comfortable and make you easy to spot in a crowd.
