    This is a woven rattan-like material. In the center is a stylized eagle with flag wings above a crest and reads "Good Luck to Mother PI 1945." It measures about 4' x 6'. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      WW2 souvenir piece. “PI” is probably for Philippine Islands. Not sure what the weaving material but some searching online should identify.

      Purchased by a serviceman and mailed (heavy fold marks) home to mom!

      Excellent! The right "wing" matches the Philippines flag and the camapaign was 1944-45. I'll consider mystery solved. Thanks so much!

      Did a quick search online— called a banig. Traditionally used as a sleeping or sitting mat.

      If you search for “ww2 souvenir banig “ you will find similar examples.
