It depicts the map of Australia, arbitrarily divided up, reflecting the many different versions and interpretations possible of any national map boundaries. Australia is a richly diverse nation; our state and territory borders are only one possible way to talk about the cultures and languages shared across the country.

This contemporary design was created by Lee Townsend, an Australian Aboriginal artist with roots in Dharug and Kamilaroi country, New South Wales. She is an educator who believes in using art to start a conversation about cultural understanding. As you journey around this map, it invites you to consider the history of the land you are walking on and the blend of knowledge and culture that has shaped Australia as we know it today.

Like all the authentic, Indigenous design mats available from Recycled Mats, Our Place is light to store or carry and easy to care for. Made from recycled rubber and plastics, dust and food spills simply wipe away. All of our door mats are also treated with Stain Guard before they arrive at your door.

The Our Place design door mat is brightly coloured to match any décor or to bring a splash of colour (and culture!) to a classroom. Use it on its own, or match it with one of the fun multicultural games available from Recycled Mats to generate discussions about geography, art, colour and Indigenous symbolism. It is also a guaranteed conversation starter in the home or office.

Being compact, Our Place is a great souvenir of your Australian travels or gift for international family and friends. Why not use it as a caravan mat and be reminded of the beauty and diversity of Australia as you’re travelling?
