These colorful floor mats are made from recycled Maine Lobster Trap Float-Rope!
|Colorful nylon floor mats made from recycled Maine Lobster Trap Float-Rope|
These innovative floor mats are handwoven using authentic float-rope used by lobster men to tether their lobster traps. Unfortunately, float-rope can entangle whales, so Maine lobstermen are now required to replace their float-rope with "sink-rope". These old float-rope have been removed from the Atlantic Ocean, and rather than being dumped into landfills, the rope is being recycled into these unique, almost indestructible floor mats with an expected life time wear of 5 plus years.

Each mat is resistant to mold, mildew, salt water, and sun. They do not absorb water, nor harbor insects. Clean up is a snap, too. Just shake the mat out or hose it down - it's even quick-drying!
Help save whales and other marine life, provide financial assistance to Maine lobstermen and protect the environment.
