LOBSTER ROPE DOORMATS, The Original Since 2009. What is lobster rope? It's the long-lasting polypropelene fishing rope used to tether buoys to lobster traps in the sea. Built to withstand ocean storms, salt, & sun, this nautical rope has to be weatherproof, water-resistant, mildew-resistant, and mold-resistant. That's why lobster rope makes the best outdoor door mats around. Crafted specifically to last for years, our rope mats are colorful, handwoven one at a time, and extremely durable. Easy to clean and fast-drying, these are the best doormats for anyone who wants function and beauty combined. Each weighing 6 to 10 pounds, they are heavy-weight and won't easily blow away. Non-skid surfaces only. Choose from Recycled Rope Doormats or one of our exclusive New Rope Doormats. All Nautical Rope Doormats are some of the most durable, weather-resistant outside door mats in the world. As seen on NBC's TODAY Show, HGTV Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens Magazine, ArchitecturalDigest.com, BobVila.com, MyDomaine.com, HuffingtonPost.com. NON-SKID SURFACES ONLY.
It may seem bold to suggest our rope doormats are the best in the world, but after 11 years of selling them nationwide, with less than 1% return rate...we think we've got a shot at the title. The great thing about rope doormats is that you don't have to live on the coast, or be a boater, or even be interested in nautical decor to enjoy the beauty and functionality of a nautical rope doormat.
Because we have so many colors available - from vibrant blues, cool navys, and warm earthtones, you can now find a lobster rope "rug" in a color perfect for your home. In the summer they add a cheery warm welcome to the door and in the winter their colors pop out against all the gray. You can find heavy-duty, water-resistant doormats but most of them are dark, rubber, and less than inviting. Many have characteristics similar to our doormats but we haven't been able to find any that have them all.
You can also find other natural rope doormats but you might be disappointed in how they hold up to the wind and rain. Prone to mildew, odors, and just natural deterioration, natural rope mats are usually best for indoor use.
It is also important that your rope mat is heavyweight, so it will not blow away. Many rope mats on the market tend to be pretty lightweight and, dare we say, less than inviting. Handwoven in the US, our welcome mats take up to 1 hour to create, depending on the style. The polypropylene rope we use is heavy so our mats can weight anywhere from 7 pounds up to 10. The raised rope weave cleans your shoes like nothing else and the mat still looks great afterwards. They won't take on an odor over time and they are completely water, rot, and mildew resistant. You will use yours for years to come - no matter what the weather. They must be placed only on non-skip surfaces (our use a rug mat underneath for smooth surfaces).
When you purchase a strong, long-lasting doormat that not only does the job but keeps looking bright and cheery on your doorstep, you'll see it's worth the investment!
