Mat X Tent X Bag

“PICNIC MATe” is new style of picnic mat providing an innovative scenario for whole process of picnicking.

The structure of “PICNIC MATe” can be twisted. With an action of twisting, you can turn a picnic mat into a tent dramatically, providing more choices when picnicking under different circumstances. Just with one step, it’s truly a quick and easy-to-use way without bothering.

“PICNIC MATe” also has the function of storing and organizing the utensils or other picnic things. Furthermore, “PICNIC MATe” can be a bag itself. While the shape turns from 3D to 2D, it’s much easier to carry and save lots of space when storing.
