How do Lobster Rope Doormats Work?

Written by: Karen Marsh


Lobster Rope Doormats, also known as Nautical Rope Doormats, are unlike any other welcome mat you'll find. Not only do they look different with their distinct colors and weave, but they work differently than traditional mats. 

Their simple design is deceiving... beyond their pretty face these hard working mats attack dirt, sand, and snow unlike any other.

How do Lobster Rope Doormats trap sand and dirt?

Our Lobster Rope Doormats have a unique "Catch and Release" weave.

Trapping dirt is so messy! Don't get me wrong... with their super tough polypropylene and polyethylene rope and raised-weave design, Lobster Rope Doormats catch more dirt than your typical doormat... but they do not "trap" it as traditional mats do. 

Standard doormats operate on the premise that they collect and keep the sand and dirt from your shoes. They fill themselves up with it. The you have to vacuum, beat, and practically sage that 'yuck' out. 

On the other hand, Lobster Rope Doormats collect and release dirt thanks to their special weave. All you need to do is lift your mat up occasionally and sweep away the debris. 

This is why they last so long - they are not weighed down and filled up with yesterday's dirt.

How do you clean a Lobster Rope Doormat?

Just shake it out a bit or use a hose and wash it down.

Unlike other doormats, Lobster Rope Doormats are easy to clean because you don't have to beat them incessantly. Simply shake it out a bit, or use a hose and wash it down. 

The rope was designed to tether lobster traps to buoys in the ocean so it's fully water, mildew and mold-resistant. Plus, it is fast-drying.

Are Lobster Rope Doormats made out of natural fiber, like coir doormats?

No. Our Lobster Rope Doormats are handwoven from a blend of long-lasting polypropylene and polyethylene rope.

This weatherproof blend of nautical rope is engineered to withstand ocean weather in order to tether lobster traps to their buoys. Wind, rain, sun, salt, snow... not a big deal to these welcome mats. Natural rope breaks down much more easily with use and exposure to weather, plus it tends to shed over time.
