This is my favorite playmat. I love the design and the colors are amazing. I was using it as a crafting mat (the surface is great for preventing scratches when making maille/ jewelry especially if I'm working on a large piece) but right now its hanging on the wall of my cubicle at work. I've lost track of the number of co-workers who have literally stopped in their tracks when walking by my station to admire it. It is that eye catching. More than one person has asked what the mat is and how it was made etc.
