Wanted, waterproof Persian carpet knockoff. Fying optional.

I am looking for a fine Persian cheap plastic rug.

Once upon a time I saw these cheap astroturf mats colored to look like you basic cheap knockoff of a Persian rug. Now I find myself having a use for such a thing, and can find nothing like it. All of the likely search strings that I come up with take me to places that sell both Persian looking rugs AND astroturf.

Grant me this wish oh hivemind of the lamp!

Something like this?
I think the generic term for the brand name "AstroTurf" is outdoor carpeting or outdoor rug. I searched for patterned outdoor rug, and found quite a bit. Unfortunately no one describes their product as being rough and scrapey like AstroTurf.

I've always like the selection of outdoor rugs here... fun colors, not too expensive.

Is this what you were looking for? We have one at home. The 'rug' is woven plastic strands, maybe about 1/8inch wide. It was in out kitchen for awhile, but I imagine it will make a more appropriate appearance on our deck this summer.

Not really cheap but this is the first thing that came to mind.
