The Ocean Plait Rug

Hand-Tie One Yourself

Made of nautical rope, ocean plait rugs make beautiful doormats at the entryway or floor mats in the bathroom. And best of all - you can make one yourself:

An approximately 2x3' rug will take about 75' of rope, depending on the thickness of rope you're using. Follow instructions here at Martha Stewart or here at the International Guild of Knot Tyers. Above are photos of some beautiful ocean plait rugs we've spotted around the web for inspiration.
