The Best Outdoor Mats Around: All About Lobster Rope Doormats

Written by: Karen Marsh


What Is Lobster Rope And Why Is It Used For Outdoor Door Mats?

Lobster rope, also known as nautical rope, is long-lasting marine-grade fishing rope that is used to tether lobster traps in the ocean. 

It is the best material for outdoor doormats because it is engineered to stand up to extreme weather conditions.

Making the perfect outdoor door mats, our exclusive lobster rope is ready to take on the sun, sand, snow, salt, and dirt. It makes the perfect outdoor mat material as it is also mildew & mold resistant, won't ever rot, and dries very quickly. Each nautical rope doormat will last for years.

The use of nautical rope for doormats actually came about by a stroke of luck, or perhaps just old-fashioned ingenuity.

Back in 2009 the state of Maine made floating lobster rope illegal to use in certain waters, as a measure to protect the Northern Right Whale Fishermen were given vouchers to buy new, sinking rope, when they turned in their old lobster rope.

Rather than letting all the used rope end up in landfills they were woven into beautiful welcome mats instead.

Aside from being a creative fix to cleaning up the leftover rope, Recycled Lobster Rope Doormats have become a helpful solution as fishermen continue to turn in their rope, providing an eco-friendly outlet for this repurposed material that can be used over and over.

New nautical rope is also used in Wicked Good Lobster Rope Doormats, giving you greater flexibility in choosing styles and colors.

Our Wicked Good Lobster Rope Doormats are woven from our own specially created commercial lobster rope and come with up to 6x’s added UV protection. These marine-grade heavy duty outdoor door mats last for years and years, further helping to reduce waste and consumption.

Why Lobster Rope Is Best For Outdoor Doormats
