  1. The Yarning Circle Mat Green and White 2.7m x 2.7m
    The Yarning Circle Mat Green and White 2.7m x 2.7m
    Product Code: 15690
    Price $208.89 $189.90

    Designed by innovative Australian Aboriginal artist De Greer Yindimincarlie of the Wiradjuri Nation in central New South Wales, this recycled, reversible floor mat includes a range of different Aboriginal symbols. Can you see men and women? Children? Emu or kangaroo tracks? How about digging tools, boomerangs and coolamons? Introduce children to the world of storytelling through symbolism, which is a central part of Aboriginal art.

    De Greer Yindimincarlie describes her design: "I draw my men sitting towards the fire as they sit with their legs outstretched towards the campfire, and I draw my women facing away from the fire, as they sit with their legs tucked under their bottoms, hence the facing way… I draw them like that because that's the way I was taught the symbols, and the way I have always drawn and taught the symbols to others."

    These mats are a great way to bring diversity education into the school or early learning environment in fun and engaging ways. Make cultural stories a part of everyday life by using these mats as story mats or eating places.

  3. Sand Goanna Mat Outback Red 1.8m x 2.7m
    Sand Goanna Mat Outback Red 1.8m x 2.7m
    Product Code: 15695
    Price $142.89 $129.90

    Created by artist Caitlin Tindall this piece is a careful collision of both tradition and modern contemporary art. Caitlin takes great pride in her work, and spends a lot of time drafting designs, choosing the perfect colours, and putting love into every dot and paint stroke she creates. The artwork that she treasures most have been passed down by her Grandfather, a Kamilaroi Elder who made didgeridoos, painted boomerangs and carved emu eggs. 

    This mat is made using recycled plastic in warm outback reds, weaved in a reversible manner, allowing you to choose which predominant colour to display. Utilise your Sand Goanna as a feature piece for your interior or take it outdoors. If the mat is exposed to extra dirty environments it is easily cleaned by using a garden hose and letting it dry in the shade.

    The sand goanna is one of the totems significant to the artist's mob, the Kamilaroi people. This mat design represents the knowledge and connections between people and places, that are carried through the goanna. The background of the design shows the tracks of the goanna, with the lines representing the trail that his tail leaves in the sand, and the dots on either side are his footprints as he walks. The design also incorporates campsites of men and women who gather together to share yarns, pass down knowledge and practice culture.

    High Tide Mat Green & Grey 3m x 3m
    Product Code: 15685
    Price $208.89 $189.90

    Once again, Indigenous artist Christine Slabb has hit the mark with this striking mat design. This square mat, made from recycled plastic, was designed by Christine as a homage to the simple things in her daily life. Things she takes for granted, living in her hometown of Fingal, in Northern NSW. This playful design is inspired by high tide at the waterhole, where the mangroves disappear. The mat has been made for outdoor use, however it is so soft it's also perfect in the classroom. High Tide is reversible, so the design appears in reverse on the other side. If the mat becomes mud-dirty, use the garden hose to clean.
