Being accustomed to plush, woven bath mats, we didn't immediately take to the idea of stepping out of the tub onto wood or stone. But now we're smitten with the natural look and feel of these VivaTerra natural bath mats (they're much more spa-like, actually).
We like the fact that wood and stone are more durable than fabric, requiring less frequent replacement. What's more, the wood mats are made from leftover scraps from furniture and lumber companies.
All of these mats are designed to drain and dry easily and may be used in the bathroom, kitchen, or entryway.
