The liquid distribution mat has high vertical wicking properties and excellent structural integrity in both wet and dry states. The liquid distribution mat is suitable for use in an absorbent article. When used in an absorbent article such as a baby diaper, the liquid distribution mat rapidly acquires and transports bodily discharges from the point of insult to other regions of the absorbent article, thereby maximizing the utilization of the absorbent article.
