Can you help me identify this everyday object shot in extreme closeup/macro?

I am trying to complete a contest that requires us to identify items in a person's household which were photographed at extreme closeup.. There is one photo that is driving me batty because I know I have seen this item in extreme closeup before somewhere on the web in a similar "guess what this is" scenario. However, I am unable to remember what it is beyond a vague feeling like it had to do with office supplies (although I could be off base on that. I have been wracking my brain so hard it may be throwing memories out at random to get me off its back). I am hopeful that someone here may be able to help me with the identification. I do have the permission of the contest holders to ask for help online. The photo in question is at http://i.imgur.com/sJt​apgZ.jpg (external link)

Hmm, maybe. It seems to be fibrous and at least partially woven. The background pieces look kind of rigid though :confused:
