Mats can vary greatly. Artists commonly use a mix of naturally dyed and natural colour fibre to create a striking variation of coloured bands. Some artists also incorporate different types of looping to produce different patterns and textured finishes.  Each type of mat, fibre bag, basket and dilly bag has it's own name in the various languages spoken in the Maningrida region.
