PROUDLY FIRST NATIONS OWNED & OPERATED
This beautiful, bright artwork is by Bundjalung artist Holly Sanders (read more about her on Our Artists page)
The Story Behind the Design
This design represents and celebrates the relationship between First Nations peoples and our Country. Country is our mother, and gives us our identity and sense of belonging. Our relationship with Country is sacred, and is interconnected with our culture, family and kinship, traditions, songlines, languages, and physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. The meeting place circles scattered throughout represent the diversity, strength and resilience of our First Nation’s communities, families and cultures. The lines and detailed patterns across the artwork symbolise our songlines and an aerial view of Country. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
Perfect for play-based learning, and for children to engage, connect to the stories & in turn spark conversation!
Cleaning the rug
Vacuum Regularly. Avoid any cleaning agent with bleach or strong chemicals. It is best to try an area for colourfastness before using across a large area of the rug. We recommend to use a dry powder style of cleaner as they can be vacuumed out of the rug and do not leave any residue. When cleaning, always blot, and never scrub or rub abrasively.
DO NOT run vacuum directly over outer serged edge of carpet. This can create fraying. Clean spills immediately by blotting with a cloth or sponge. Remove any grease spots with ordinary dry cleaning solvents. If you do vacuum over the edge of the rug it can cause serge yarn to become frayed and torn. It is always best to test a cleaner on an inconspicuous spot on the carpet/rug before applying to the entire piece.
Professional or periodic cleanings using the power spray-extraction carpet cleaning method are recommended. You should have the smallest possible amount of cleaning chemical used when you hire a professional cleaner. Allow to dry flat on the floor.
Not recommended for use outdoors or in bright sunlight as the material colours may fade over time.
