Doormats are not the most glamorous category in the decor department. But a doormat is often the first thing that guests see upon entering a home (perhaps we would all do well to give it more thought?).
Recently, we spotted some great versions that are made of fique, a natural, biodegradable fiber that’s similar to jute in feel. (Fique is traditionally used in Colombia and Peru to make coffee sacks, baskets, and shoes.) The doormats are designed by Giselle Hernandez, the founder of LA-based online store Someware, and woven by the artisans of a small family-owned co-op in Santander, Colombia.
Here, some of our favorites:
