Indoor-Outdoor Doormats Made from Recycled Plastic

September 1, 2020

The doormat is one of the first details visitors encounter in your house. How welcoming—and environmentally friendly—is yours?

Admired in our recent tour of the Mjölk Shepherd’s Hut: a mat that looks like a raked Zen garden. Made by Heymat of Oslo, Norway, it’s one of a line of indoor-outdoor designs composed of 50-to-100 percent recycled plastic. They’re also made to last: “the quality is the equivalent of an industrial mat with high absorption capacity,” notes Heymat. Here are some of our favorites.

The Lyn, shown here, is available from Austin-based Nannie Inez in two sizes starting at $159.
