Maine Float-Rope Doormat

Denise George

Float-rope is used by lobstermen to tether multiple traps together on the ocean floor. The problem with float-rop is that it can entangle whales. Maine lobstermen are now required to replace their float-rope with sink-rope. The Gulf of Maine Lobster Foundation purchases the old float-rope from the lobstermen, keeping the huge quantities out of the Maine landfills. The rope is then reclaimed and woven into virtually indestructible doormats by craftspeople in Maine. Maine Float-Rope Co. donates a percentage of their sales to the Gulf of Maine Lobster Foundation. They also support programs that protect the Northern Right Whale and research that promotes sound environmental practices for the state of Maine.

Colorful woven doormats in beautiful muted stripes. These unique mats are made from reclaimed lobster trap float rope, then woven by hand by local crafters in Maine. Colors vary so each is one-of-a-kind. 18" x 30". Reversible and easily cleanable. And, yes, they float!
