Here's some more information from the Delta Award organisers:

A carpet made of alpha or needle grass that reproduces footprints. The grass is a traditional material which is commonly used to manufacture the soles of espadrilles. The carpet is made by women artisans from the region of Murcia. Claiming this craft for a contemporary product offers a chance for survival of a traditional craft, highlighting local know-how.
