All of our lobster rope doormats are made from 100% REclaimed Maine Lobster Rope from lobster traps along Maine's Rocky Coast. These doormats make the perfect gift and will last forever! Seriously, it will be the last doormat you will ever buy! Unless of course you like a new and different pattern! If they can last almost a decade of wear and tear in the Atlantic Ocean, they will hold up on your porch or patio! As a 1% For The Planet member company, we recognize that we have a responsibility to our planet. That's why it is not only important that all of our Maine lobster rope products be made with 100% REclaimed material, but 1% of our annual sales at Maine-ly Fish Prints is donated to those that share our passion in preserving our ecological environment!
