Portable labyrinths, painted on canvas and other lightweight materials, have become popular since the mid-1990's. Suitable for events, workshops, temporary installation and travelling presentations, many hundreds have been produced in a bewildering array of materials, styles and designs. While replicas of the Chartres Cathedral labyrinth remain popular, a number of innovative designs, better suited for limited indoor spaces, have been created especially for this medium.

Another recent innovation, "finger labyrinths," carved on wooden boards and other materials, are designed to provide a tactile experience of the labyrinthine pathway, which can also be navigated with a marble or ball-bearing as a test of hand/eye co-ordination.
