This mat was found underneath the cushion, on top of the parts with springs. At first I thought it was quite usable, and beautiful in a way. All the rough fibers were visible, which gave it a nice pattern. But while designing a couch I could not find a way in which to use this hemp like mat. I did not yet figure out what the best way for recycling is, since it seems the mat was covered, or drained with some kind of binder and I have no idea what it is. I hope to find out soon what it is, so I can recycle it in the best way possible. Otherwise I have to throw it away in the bulky household waste, and it sadly will become the only part of the couch that will be burned entirely.
