THE CAPE COLLECTION

 "Voila — the recycled lobster rope doormat. The idea is, if this material can withstand years of being hauled in and out of the ocean, it will hold up to foot traffic, kids, and dogs, on your porch or patio. We are partial to the wide variety of lively stripe combinations (each named for a Maine town) sold by Stern Lines. They work with 24 different Maine lobstermen to make the mats, using only repurposed rope."  - THE BOSTON GLOBE | TRAVEL
