HISTORY OF THE MAT
The beach mat comes from the family of mats including those dedicated to floor covering or rugs, whether woven or plaited, whereas they started with braided plant fibers on likely earthen floors.
According to archaeologists the earliest floor coverings were made 25,000 years ago in Paleolithic times using tree bark. Not long after, humans developed the practice of weaving to make certain goods. Women would take either straw or plantlike grasses called rushes and weave them together in Mesopotamia about 6,000 years ago.
In biblical times, these were used as sleeping pads and to create warmth from the cold. Such were constructed of woollen yarn woven together. These types of floor coverings were popular well into the Middle Ages.
In the early 1800s, a new type of floor covering was created using the waste products from traditional weaving looms. The discarded pieces of yarn, known as thrums, were collected and pulled through a woven base of straw or some other sturdy material. The practice, known as rug hooking (whose roots may extend further back into history), became popular in England.
In the 20th century, materials used to make floor coverings expanded. During the industrial Revolution floor coverings were made most commonly from rubber and petroleum-based materials.
