THROWDOWN: The mat is reversible and can survive all weather conditions.
We’ve searched far and wide and found the perfect throw rug for you. (You’re welcome.) This delicate-looking throw rug is actually unbelievably durable, made of reincarnated soda bottles, and crafted by Thai artisans who receive a fair wage for their handiwork.
But wait, that’s not all! The mat is reversible (for the fickle of taste), and, like a Mount Everest climber, can survive all weather conditions! Throw it in your kitchen, in your mudroom, on your terrace. Make it your showermat or doormat. Use it in the rain, on a train, in a box, for a fox, here, there, anywhere!
Amazingly, “cleaning” your rug will pretty much amount to giving it a good spray with the hose, which makes the mat perfect for extreme-grime, low-motivation zones, like dorm rooms. Buy one at gaiam.com.
