This striking two-tone Maori Aroha design runner mat depicts the special love within a family. The smaller rectangular size (0.9m x 1.8m) makes it ideal for compact spaces or tiny living. It also makes a beautiful feature piece for an entrance and a hallway.
The word Aroha is a Maori word for ‘Love’. To create this image of peace and unity, artist Milton Tupaea has used the Koru – an unfurling silver fern leaf which is an integral symbol within Maori art. The symbol of three Koru wrapped around each other can be seen as two parents and a child embracing and celebrating their bond.
Tupaea has Ngati Maniapo connections with the North Island. He draws on his heritage and the symbols of nature in that part of the world to create meaningful, stylistic artworks.
Aroha is a genuine stylish Maori design mat that is ideal to bring a cultural element to any area.
Like all the lightweight, stylish recycled plastic mats, the Aroha recycled mat is comfortable and easy to clean. Made from 95% recycled plastics. Plastics such as plastic bags and PET bottles which have therefore not gone to landfills. You can fold it up for transportation and storage, and it wipes clean easily for indoor or outdoor use, including as:
- small camping mat
- door mat
- entrance and hallway mat
- carpet runner
- mat to keep sand and dirt out of tents and caravans
- easy carry picnic mat for concerts and music festivals
- cultural mat for display
- set up an area mat for kids play
As with all of our recycled plastic mats, these Aroha runner mats are waterproof and UV treated. Not only are they great for indoors, but it can also be rolled into a space-saving size. Perfect to keep in the boot of your car to create a comfortable space at the beach or in your picnic bag for moments of appreciating the great outdoors.
When using the Aroha in high foot traffic areas, we recommend a gentle brush and hose down with some earth-friendly detergent to remove dirt and dust. Furthermore, to remove any smaller food spills or mess, simply wipe down with a wet cloth and store again.
