There are really only 2 things your front door mat needs to do: look good and keep the dirt out.
But why is it so hard to find one that can do both?
You fall in love with a cute, chic doormat but after a few weeks it looks pretty sad… doormats are called “doormats” for a reason - they get tromped on! Your sweet little doormat is looking a little rough around the edges now.
So you go for an outdoor door mat that is strictly functional. But then YOU are sad. You miss your cute front entrance. Rubber is soooo boring.
Where can you find the right outdoor door mat for your front door?
The secret is our marine-grade nautical rope doormats!
Wait, you don’t live by the coast? No problem - we carry a doormat color and style for any location - mountains to cities to suburbs.
Let me tell you more about the rope doormats often called the best front door mat you can buy.
The #1 reason those cute outdoor doormats fall apart is due to humidity: rain, snow and ice. A soaked doormat that won’t dry quickly is going to rot (if it is natural fiber), shed, or grow mildew (welcome home!)
These element cause a doormat to break down (not to mention, who wants to track in mold from their doormat).
And, it makes that outdoor mat smell.
The key to finding an outdoor door mat that lasts for years is to find one that is fast-drying.
So, whether you choose our Lobster Rope Doormats or not, always select and outdoor door mat that is designed to dry quickly and resist mildew and mold.
How Lobster Rope Doormats Work
Handwoven in Maine, each Lobster Rope Doormat is made from long-lasting polypropylene and polysteel fishing rope. This is the same nautical rope fishermen use to tether lobster traps in the sea.
What happens when a lobster boat goes out to pull traps and the rope breaks?
Yeah, they don’t want to find out either. That’s why this lobster rope is engineered to last in salt water.
So, think about dropping a coir mat into the sea vs. a Lobster Rope Doormat. Which one is likely to come back?
Lobster rope is perfect for weatherproof rope door mats because it can stand up to Mother Nature's harshest elements - water, salt, snow, sand, sun, and wind.
Lobster Rope Outdoor Doormats last for years. Guaranteed.
Our Wicked Good Rope Doormats use specially engineered Marine Tech Fibers that are colorfast, vibrant, and have added UV protection.
So whether you go for a bold nautical rope doormat (I am looking at your Navy, Teal, Silver!) or an outdoor door mat perfect for a lake house (Navy, Green and Dark Tan), or something that works in any setting (check out these Solids and Double Weaves!), your rope mat will look great at your front door all year long.

A few other bonus tips about Lobster Rope Outdoor Doormats:
- Each Lobster Rope Doormat is tightly handwoven and its ends are seared together to create a permanent bond. This means even if you use this door mat outdoors or indoors, it will not lose its shape or size, or fall apart in bad weather. It never loses its shape!
- Our “Catch and Release” design means dirt is caught and passed through the mat to be swept away later. Say goodbye to whacking your doormats to clean them! Lobster Rope Doormats never get bogged down with dirt and debris.
- Lift and sweep away dirt. Then (this is the BEST part) just hose it down at your front door. These nautical rope mats are the easiest outdoor door mats to clean - ever!
