This rug by Barcelona designer Martín Azúa is woven like the soles of espadrille shoes.
Called Trepitjada, the mat was woven from grass by artisans in the Spanish region of Murcia.
Azúa's project was shortlisted for the Delta Awards for industrial design at FADfest in Barcelona - read more details and see the winning design, a bike that grows with your child, in our earlier story.
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.
