Can't tell from my photo (sorry, I used my cell phone for this and should not have) but it's like a weave pattern, two-toned and leather looking. It's so soft to step out of shower on to this! Not sure if anyone else though of using the chef mats this way but boy! What a clever idea if I do say so myself. When I do my son's bathroom over, think he's getting a black or gray one!
This bathroom is small, it's off our bedroom. I am keeping the tones/colors neutral for that reason (for now;)
