Turtle Circle (or Waru Circle) is a Torres Strait Island design mat in rich bronze and white. It’s deal for the playroom, classroom or any room where you want to gather people for group time, sharing food or sharing conversation.

Michael Gilsenan is an Australian Indigenous artist with connections to Stephen Island in the Torres Strait and the Yidinji people of Far North Queensland. For him, the turtle is an important symbol of life in that region. It has a practical use, as food, but also cultural and spiritual significance as a reminder of a balanced and respectful relationship between people and the ocean.

This intricate design is ideal as a teaching tool, helping students of all ages learn more about their own and other cultures while they read, eat or play on the rug. The eye-catching colours and distinctive cultural imagery ensure it will be a talking point in any library, community centre or shopfront.

 

Recycled Plastic Mats in Turtle Design

 

Turtle Circle is made from 95% recycled plastics making it easy to clean and light enough to carry or fold up for transport or storage. This innovative material is soft and comfortable for sitting and walking on; warm in winter but cool in summer.

Use these rugs as classroom mats to extend learning in areas such as culture, nature, family life or art. In the home or office, Turtle Circle is a great way to celebrate cultural diversity through art. This design is also popular for beach and caravan mats.   

Turtle Circle is a unique Torres Strait Island design recycled mat in vibrant bronze and white. Enjoy it as a camping mat, play mat or anywhere you want to bring people together.

This product is so awesome. The children love it at my centre and so do the staff. It's easy to clean and looks wonderful. It's easy to pack away even thought it's so big. This is my second mat bought from you guys and I'm sure it won't be my last.
