I admit it: I love it when my friends covet my obsessively sourced household essentials. For instance: my woven Portuguese bathmat from the White Company in London that a certain someone is eyeing (Gardenista Michelle, I'm talking to you). Here are five options for Michelle to consider:

Above: The bathmat that's the object of envy in my neighborhood? It's the Toulon Mat from the White Company (I brought mine home in my suitcase) and it comes in four sizes (including a runner length). Prices start at £16 for the medium size.

Above: A handmade pink-dyed Portuguese Bath Mat is $17.50 at CJ Shop.

Above: A handmade Portuguese Bath Mat is $75 at A Detacher in New York.

Above: The Woven Portuguese Bath Mat is $54 at Anthropologie and is available in white or coral.

Above: A similar hand-woven Cotton Hand-Knotted Rug (19 by 41 inches) from Portugal is $60 at Bitters & Co. in Seattle.
