This size doormat is approximately 34×20 inches but each are made by hand and vary from one to the next. Between the variation of rope colors used and the unique nature of each, no two doormats are the same.

In the past float-rope was used by lobstermen to tether multiple traps together on the ocean floor. Unfortunately it was discovered that float-rope can pose a danger to whales, entangling them and leading to potential harm. Today Maine lobstermen are required to use sink-rope, which led to the question of what to do with all the now unusable float-rope. Enter Lisa-Marie’s colorful rope mats – a pretty, practical and amazing recycling outlet, giving a second life to hundreds of thousands of pounds of float-rope, and keeping it out of Maine landfills.

Description

The grey lobster rope doormat is made from reclaimed, recycled lobster float-rope. Float-rope was used by lobstermen to tether multiple traps together on the ocean floor. The problem with float-rope is that it can entangle whales, which sometimes leads to their injury or death. Now, Maine lobstermen are required to replace float-rope with sink-rope. Finally, without an appropriate recycling outlet, hundreds of thousands of pounds of this turned-in float-rope could end up in Maine landfills. Thus, the doormats were created.
