Meet The Playmat: The Mariner
The Mariner is an uplifting design inspired by Seigaiha wave patterns. The combination of the light background with the gentle, blue-green scalloped motif creates a design that feels familiar and also styles easily into the family home.
The Colour Palette
The scalloped, wave design is captured in a soft colour palette of sea grass with an off-white background. The sea grass hue offers a colour that sits between blue, grey and green, a refreshing choice for modern interiors.
The Pattern History
Seigaiha means 'blue sea and waves' in Japanese and has been used as a decorative motif for centuries, including for textiles and ceramics. The concentric circles, drawn in the form of waves are used to symbolise both calm and powerful surges of good luck - just as waves and water can be wild or gentle.
Because we know one size doesn't fit all, The Mariner playmat is available in two sizes. The Standard works as a multipurpose, alternative to an area rug and the Compact is ideal for play spaces in open plan living rooms.
In Real Life
The Mariner is versatile design for use anywhere in the home. We love to see the soothing design unrolled in little ones' bedrooms as well as in the family living room.
