How To Replicate Anthropologie's Drop Cloth Rug?

Good Questions

Q: I visited an Anthropologie store recently and saw this awesome rug. The saleswoman said they made the rug in store by purchasing a 'drop cloth' from a local hardware store and then painting the black stripes onto it. I really like the idea but can't seem to find the exact kind of fabric anywhere. I've searched for drop cloth, cloth tarp, canvas tarp, and others but all I've been able to find is coarse cotton canvass that comes in a natural, or beige color. Can I get some help here?
