All of our lobster rope mats 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!
