Lobster Rope 101 - Your Top Questions

What ARE Lobster Rope Doormats? Learn all about them here:

Q: Are Lobster Rope Doormats weatherproof?

A: Yes - the marine-grade commercial fishing rope used to weave all of our Lobster Rope Doormats is specially engineered to hold up to sun, salt, & water.

Q: Will Lobster Rope Doormats bleed when wet?

A: No. Lobster Rope Doormats do not bleed or transfer color under any circumstances.

Q: Should I use my doormat indoors or outdoors?

A: They make perfect door mats for outdoors because they are fast-drying and are mold and mildew resistant.

Q: How do I clean my Lobster Rope Doormat

A: Lift it up, sweep away all the accumulated dirt (you will be amazed at how much it caught!). Then hose it down right at your door. No more "thwacking" your rug against a wall!

Q: What size doormat should I choose?

A: One of the most popular sizes for an outside front door mat is 18 x 30. Check out our buying guide here to find your perfect size of doormat.

Q: What is the difference between Wicked Good Doormats and ColorWave?

A: It all comes down to the feel of the rope. Both are handwoven in Maine from lobster rope that is ultra-durable and lasts for years. Both are marine-grade, fast-drying and resistant to mildew and mold. The difference is that ColorWave rope is slightly more flexible than Wicked Good and has a bit of a softer hand. Wicked Good rope is still pliable, but is slightly thicker and less flexible.

We always recommend you find the doormat you love the most and go with it - you cannot go wrong with either a ColorWave or Wicked Good Doormat.

Q: Do you ship the doormats flat?

A: We've found that we can keep shipping costs - and carbon footprint - down by folding the doormats before they ship. Simply lay them out flat and they will quickly retain their shape.
