These are a bit off center to be considered tools, but we couldn't resist them - because they are clearly so superior. (If you think we're crazy to present them to you, please do let us know. If not, vote on the positive side and order one, which will encourage us.)
Coir (the interior fibers harvested from fully ripe coconut husks) is a familiar material for doormats, but what you can typically find are not like these at all. Coir is tough and water resistant (it's one of the few natural fibers resistant to damage by salt water). Typically, the coir fibers are processed to make them softer - therefore kinder to bare feet. But this process takes some of the properties of toughness, durability and abrasion resistance away. The coir in our mats is deliberately left elastic enough to twist without breaking and to hold a curl.
Machine woven in long, thick strands 1-1/4" in diameter and tied together by loops of stainless steel wire to make a generously open mesh pattern, these mats are of a quality rarely seen - even in very upmarket stores. The soles of your shoes will love them. Water, dirt and debris falls naturally through the mesh. The mat can be picked up at any time and shaken to be cleaned or blasted with a stream of water from a hose.
Our mats come in two styles. The Flat Doormat come in two sizes: Large
29 x 19 x 1-1/4" thick, and Medium
23 x 17-1/2 x 1-1/4" thick. The smaller Shoe-Size
mat is 13" x 12" x 2-1/2" thick. It excels at cleaning the sides of very dirty boots - as you can see.Please note that there are Air Shipping surcharges on the Medium and Large Flat Coir Mats.
