Lobster Rope Doormats

Welcome to Maine

Leaving a life at sea behind them, these colorful float-ropes that were once used by lobstermen off the coast of Maine have been re-purposed and braided into sturdy doormats.

Float-ropes are used by lobstermen to tether their lobster traps. Unfortunately, float-rope entangles Northern Right Whales (an endangered species) which swim in the same waters. In order to protect these whales, lobstermen are now required to turn in their old float-ropes and switch to sink-ropes instead. 300,000 pounds of float-rope was destined to go to landfills and burning facilities in Massachusetts before it was re-purposed for projects such as this.

Extremely durable, these doormats can handle the toughest weather conditions and are resistant to mold, mildew, salt water and sun. They do not absorb water or harbor insects. To clean, just give it a good shake. Handmade in Maine of 100% recycled materials. Includes card about the project.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary. Color varies slightly on each.
