This nautical themed door mat is made of 1/2' Manila. It makes an attractive welcome for your guests. It is the classic Ocean Mat style.

The Ocean Mat can also be known as The Sailor's True Lover Mat Weave (perfect for a wedding gift). Woven mats may be described as flat or two dimensional knots. Many of the patterns are taken from the tradition of sailors' decorative work. Rope mats were a feature on sailing boats - used as chafing gear, to protect against damage to deck timbers, or wherever necessary.

The first decorative knot I tackled and probably will be my favourite I love nothing more than listening to the radio and making these mats. Some people use finishing nails to make a pattern (a popular way), My own style, I prefer to keep it fluid and work with the knot, having made so many over the years I use weight (tin cans) to keep the shape. As a gift they are perfect as the mats will grow and change making them wonderful as a gifts for a weddings and housewarmings. You are welcome to ask me any questions about my process. Why not ask?

This mat will swell when you first put it out in the rain and then can be scrubbed, hosed down and is a rough and tough front door mat.

Different sizes available.

This Ocean Mat is approx 30' by 19'. This mat has 110ft of rope within it.
