These classic cotton tufted door mats by British manufacturer, The Turtle Mat Company is just one range of mats suitable for interior use. Branches of John Lewis across the UK are one of the major retailers currently selling Turtle mats for hard floors, and other multi grip versions suitable for use on hard floor or carpet, view by clicking here
This blog post is dedicated to the reviewing of Turtle Mat 75x100cm (multi-grip) £57.95 in Fawn, this mix of dark brown, cream and beige colour flecks co-ordinate with most types of contemporary flooring especially ceramic floor tiles and carpeting in the home or the workplace. As well as Fawn, the mats are also available in Seal, Sand, Grey, Graphite, Blue, Hazelnut and a new Sage Green colour. Visit the website here for more information.
The wiping surface consists of cotton tufts and these soft fibres are highly absorbent; yet are non-staining (see above). The non-slip backing is NOT made from PVC, but from rubber, which includes raised rubber knobbles arranged in a square patterns that cling and attach to any kind of interior floor, so the mat does not slip under foot or migrate when in situ (see below).
The classic Turtle Mat comes with a five year guarantee. The short-cut arrangement of the cotton threads is like so to attract the kind of dust, grit and walked in from the outside. We found the mat tended to shed a bit when new, nevertheless, the beauty with this mat is that it can be machine washed and it will continue to look its very best if cleaned regularly. It is softly pliable and so this large door mat size will fit easily into a standard, front loading domestic washing machine.
