Something Green is Underfoot….

Mad Mats at Pot-ted.comThis Spring, update your patio, porch, or deck in one easy step. Mad Mats are fantastically chic outdoor/indoor woven rugs made from 100% recycled plastic (disposable bottles, packing wrap, etc.). Created in Thailand under Fair Trade conditions, Mad Mats will not work with factories that employ children or produce environmentally harmful waste.

The mats are washable (just run them under a hose), reversible, and really comfy underfoot. The flat weave and soft tubular threads won’t mildew or stain. I’ve had one on my sun-soaked deck in Los Angeles for nearly five years, and it hasn’t faded one bit (ah, the upside of plastic’s longevity!).

Available in a variety of colors and patterns. Small (4’x6′) is $45; Medium (5’x8′) is $89, Large (6’x9′) is $110, and Runners (30 in. wide, and 7′ to 8′ long, depending on pattern) are $45. All available at (323.665.3801).
