I've only ever seen these rugs/mats in Malaysia. It's made from scrap material. My grandmother used to make them from leftover scraps after quilting. I used to admire their brash blends of colour. This one I bought from a shop in Malacca (in Malaysia). I've been trying to work out how to make one - it looks like there's a lot of folding involved. This one is too small as a floor mat so I've used it as a table decoration.
