When you decide to buy a southwest style door mat or welcome mat, you will find that these are sturdy, made to last mats, that will stand up to a lot of abuse and still look great. Made of heavy coir fiber (coir is the tough fiber from the outside of the coconut, and is difficult to wear out when used in mats and rugs, besides being unaffected by salt water), which guarantees that you will not have to worry about replacing your door mat very often. These mats are wonderfully abrasive with strength to clean muddy shoes and boots, and also may be cleaned with the garden hose. A rubber bottom is usually found on southwest door mats to help keep them in place.
