In 2019 for a very short period a bath mat (both small and large) with printed pumpkin was offered for sale. The design was more than remarkable since only circa 5% of the surface was used for the image of a pumpkin; not really a commercial product, one would say. In less than two months it was taken from the website of Redbubble.
