well, first off, who made that, and why cant they make it again?Second of all, why cant you just make it in Photoshop?

Make the texture you want in PS. Right click on the object, (or selected faces) and go down to Materials > Add new Material. Click the box next to the color slider, and choose File from the popup. You can then change it further by changing the diffuse, reflectivity, ambiance, ect.
