I’ve long been a fan of The Maine Float-Rope Company’s Down East Doormats but would continually forget to pick one up. As always, good friend James pointed them out to me again and my love for them was renewed. Down East Doormats are handwoven of reclaimed sailing rope so no two rugs are the same. A percentage of The Maine Float-Rope Company’s profits goes directly to organizations and projects that, “help protect the Northern Right Whale, provide funds for Maine lobstermen, and implement environmentally sound practices in the Gulf of Maine”. It’s a worthy endeavor to support and you’ll enjoy the Maine inspired colors of your doormat every time you pass your hearth.
