this is a 3x3 tile with a padding-textured surface. It is part of a set of texture tiles I am building, in sizes and types that Lego has not done before, and is unlikely to do any time soon. I love Lego and support their business! I am planning a Kick-starter to help fund the purchase of a metal mould and a large run of this and some other parts in a range of Lego compatible colors. Please stay tuned, I will add the Kick-starter info here when it launches.
