Add Natural Linoleum:
Doing some sleuthing on just what this term could mean, I found one manufactured flooring called Marmoleum. It is described by Forbo as a natural linoleum floor that is made with 100% natural ingredients: linseed oil, cork, limestone, tree rosin and natural minerals.
I also found a blog (http://www.boingboing.net/2008/05/12/patchwork-kitchen-fl.html) that showed a picture of the Marmoleum and some tongue-in-cheek discussion that followed said:
It is neither a cross between marmite and linoleum, nor a cross between marmalade and petroleum.

As everyone knows, it is a cross between marble and oleomargarine.

heh.
