This mat is hand stitched using the fabric from life vests abandoned on the beaches of the Mediterranean. Customers are advised they no longer constitute a valid buoyancy aid - although shockingly many never did - they're cheap fakes sold by people smugglers and don't actually float.
To fabricate the mats Banksy has teamed up with the organisation 'Love Welcomes' who work with women in detainment camps in Greece. You can make your order by visiting their website. All proceeds are retained locally to help refugees access key services.
Life vest not included.
There will be an initial 500 mats produced. All mats have a Gross Domestic Product official label attached (so you know it's genuine, we have not released the design of the label yet) but the mat is not eligible for a certificate of authentication.
