The Best Outdoor Mat: How do Lobster Rope Doormats Work?

Written by: Karen Marsh


Wicked Good 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, heavy duty nautical rope doormats 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/polyethylene rope and raised-weave design, Wicked Good Lobster Rope Doormats catch more dirt than your typical front door mat... but they do not "trap" it as traditional outdoor mats do.

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

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

This is why our nautical rope doormats 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 outside doormats, Wicked Good 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.

Our exclusive marine-grade nautical rope is so strong and weatherproof it can actually tether lobster traps to buoys in the ocean. It’s fully water, mildew and mold-resistant. Plus, this outdoor doormat material is fast-drying.

How fast do Lobster Rope Doormats dry?

Wicked Good Lobster Rope Doormats dry quickly and resist rot over time.Engineered to withstand all weather conditions, our nautical rope doormats are woven from fast-drying marine-grade rope, so they can get wet over and over. 

Outdoor mats will always be exposed to moisture, and ours are designed to dry quickly and not hold water.

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 which we engineer to be extremely long-lasting and durable.

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 outdoor welcome mats. 

On the other hand, natural rope breaks down much more easily with use and exposure to weather, plus it tends to shed over time. As it falls apart and harbors odors, natural fibers are not recommended as outdoor doormat material.

Will Wicked Good Lobster Rope Doormats stain concrete?

No, our bleed-proof Lobster Rope Doormats are engineered to retain their color even if these get wet all the time. Our nautical rope doormats are handwoven from lobster rope that never transfers color or stains surfaces.

What is the best Lobster Rope Doormat for me?

Whether it is nautical colors or earth tones, we have a Lobster Rope Doormat for every door.

Make a bold statement at your front door with a pop of striped color. For a more refined look, choose from our solid colors or double weave nautical rope mats.

As long as it is sold on our site, and called a "Lobster Rope Doormat" or "Nautical Rope Doormat" you'll enjoy all the benefits. So, pick the one you like best for your front door, whether it is bright, beachy colors or classic, timeless tones. They all last for years and are completely weatherproof.

You can choose from Wicked Good Doormats, or Recycled Lobster Rope Mats.

Can Lobster Rope Doormats keep away unwanted guests?

Sorry - they actually tend to do the opposite!

Lobster Rope Doormats are such conversation starters that they often attract people wanting to know what they are and how to get one!

Just hide behind the curtains for a bit... :)
