Question: Different English names for "picnic cloth"

From:Eugene Oh <un.doing@...>

I was writing when I realised the cumbersome turn of phrase that is the
English "piece of cloth", for which I have been looking for a more poetic
synonym or periphrasis.

Is there a difference between Anglophone countries as to how this unwieldy
phrase is rendered, more specifically perhaps "picnic cloth"?
