Made into ropes and beautifully hand twisted, the Nedia Home Lovers Knot Coco Coir Indoor / Outdoor Welcome Door Mat is a gorgeous addition to your home. Crafted from naturally harvested coir fibers, this mat is hand woven using traditional looms and then sheared to create a dense pile that helps to clean shoes and trap dirt and moisture. It's hand-tufted fibers and heavy coir fiber backing also helps to lock the fibers in place to minimize shedding and keeps the mat in place. Coir is a renewable resource and the mat is completely biodegradable and compostable. Best used in sheltered areas, such as a covered porch, this mat can cause color transfer to natural stone, concrete, and other surfaces if it's excessively exposed to the elements. Naturally mold- and mildew-resistant, this gorgeous mat will have some slight variations in size, color, and texture, giving each mat its own unique characteristics. It's also normal for the mat to shed fibers during the first few weeks it's used.
