Cambria picked a similar mat as her Daily Find a few months ago, and I can see why. The heavy duty doormats are great for scraping the dirt and mud off shoes. The mats are made from recycled float-rope previously used by lobstermen in Maine. The industrial rope is resistant to mold, mildew, salt water, and sun. Leave it outside from summer to winter and it is still going to look great.
I love all the different colors and striped patterns available - 20 different color variations. My favorite mat is the either the orange & purple or the purple & yellow. The doormat is available in a small size (18" x 32") for $60 and a large size (24" x 38") for $95. I am definitely going to add the doormat to my housewarming gift idea list.
