Which mat?

  • Are All Mats Made in the UK?

    Are All Mats Made in the UK?

     

    "So, are all mats made in the UK?" This is one of the most frequently asked questions of all.

    Coconuts Palms in Kerala, Southern India Coconuts Palms in Kerala, Southern India

     

    As you know, most of our doormats are made from Coir Fibre, which is a by-product of coconut production.

    The fibrous outer husk around the outside of what we recognize as the rough brown coconut shell is soaked, teased, and spun into a coarse yarn which in turn becomes the tufts of many of the coconut doormats we sell.

    The UK is not renowned for its coconut groves.

    They are grown all over the world but not in the UK. The main parts of the world for coir production for use in doormats are in Southern India and Sri Lanka.

    So how do we make doormats in the UK?

     

    Many of the mats we sell are indeed made right here in the UK with raw materials from overseas, but others are specially produced for us in other countries, including India, Sri Lanka, Italy, USA and The Netherlands.

    Where are our mats made?

     

    Many of the mats we sell are made right here in the UK, but others are specially produced for us in other countries, including India, Sri Lanka, Italy, USA and The Netherlands. We choose our supply partners very carefully to ensure a quality product and ethical, responsible supply chain.

    Hand Stitched Coir Mats

     

    Our traditional made to measure hand stitched mats are made here in Lincoln, UK, in our custom matting workshop. Our partners in India and Sri Lanka make giant rolls of woven backed coir for us which then travels to us in containers by sea freight.  Here in Lincoln we use traditional mat making skills that have been in our family for generations to turn these giant rolls into individual bespoke doormats made to the exact size that you specify.

    See them here.

    Ready-Made Coir Mats

     

    The same factories that produce our giant rolls also made individual doormats for us from the same high-quality coir fibre we use in our bespoke products.

    These standard sized mats are made on looms, either modern power looms or old-fashioned wooden hand looms. They are come in a range of sizes from the very small 60cm x 40cm to the huge 125cm x 75cm.

    These ready-made mats come from both India and Sri Lanka.

    See them here.

    PVC Backed Coir Matting

     

    Many of our customers order cut to size PVC backed coir matting. There is currently no manufacturer producing the large 2 metre x 12.5 metre rolls of this material here in the UK. Traditionally in Europe it is made in The Netherlands and Italy. There are also factories in both India and Sri Lanka making it too.

    Our Lincoln team hand stitch bespoke mats to order Our Lincoln team hand stitch bespoke mats to order

    We buy a lot of these rolls, because we stock all the grades, colours and thicknesses available. We import them to the UK and then your order is hand-cut to your specified size in the UK in one of our workshops.

    See it here.

    Printed Doormats

     

    We have a wide range of printed doormats, these come from various countries including India, Sri Lanka and Italy. However, the coconut fibre for most of them originates in either India or Sri Lanka.

    See them here.

    Washable Doormats

     

    We are very proud to stock Hug Rugs which are made here in the UK in a factory in Yorkshire. They use recycled materials such as plastic bottles, recycled commercial plastic and old t-shirts to make their beautiful range of highly absorbent washable doormats.

    In addition, our custom-made washable doormats are also made in the UK.

    See them here.

    Logo Mats

     

    We sell most types of logo mats for businesses, all of these except for the rubber ones which come from USA are made here in the UK.

    Slate & Wooden House Signs and Gifts

     

    Our slate and wooden signs and gift are made to order in a small workshop in Staffordshire. It is a skilled task. As a result, we do not just import blank signs and carve them. Our workshop makes the wooden signs individual from lengths of wood and bevels the edges. Therefore, we can offer a totally bespoke service as every part of the sign is made to order here in the UK.

  • Hug Rug Eco Friendly Barrier Mats

    What is a Hug Rug?

    Washable Hug Rug - Stripe - Designer 13 Washable Hug Rug - Stripe - Designer 13

     

    Hug Rug eco friendly barrier mats are genuinely made in the UK.

    We are delighted to be able to offer them as part of our range. Hug Rug Indoor Mats come in a wide range of stylish designs to suit any décor. What's more, they are machine washable at 30°c and have an anti-slip backing.

    How are they made?

     

    They are made in a family-run factory in Yorkshire, England. Over 7.5 million plastic bottles per year are recycled to make the extra tough membrane in the mat.

    Over 5.9 million t-shirts per year are recycled to create the cotton tufting in the washable indoor mats.

    In addition, more than 100 tonnes of industrial plastics are recycled every year to make the special non-slip backing in Hug Rug eco friendly barrier mats.

    Where can they be used?

     

    Hug Rug eco friendly barrier mats can be used all around the home. The range now includes mats specially designed for outdoor use in either highly durable polyethylene or traditional coir with an eco-friendly backing.

    Indoor Hug Rugs can be used just inside the door, as hallway runners, kitchen mats, play mats and more. As a result, the uses are endless. The cotton tufted pile is beautifully soft and ultra-absorbent, they can absorb up to 3x their own weight in water.

    Hug Rug Sense - Charcoal - Made from Recycled Plastic Hug Rug Sense - Charcoal - Made from Recycled Plastic

     

    Who do they appeal to?

     

    Pet owners are particularly fond of Hug Rugs, because pets are not renowned for their ability to wipe their feet!

    However, when they enter the home via a super absorbent Hug Rug, excess moisture and dirt are trapped preventing muddy paw prints.

    Likewise, parents of young children love them too. Leave muddy footprints at the door, pop the mat in the washing machine and it will come out good as new.

    With the wide range of stylish designs and array of benefits including absorbency, anti-slip and recycled content, it's hard to imagine a home where they wouldn’t fit right in.

     

     

    Why should I buy one?

    It is rare to find a mat that ticks so many boxes, for instance:

    Hug Rug - Design Spot 10 - Ideal anywhere in the home Hug Rug - Design Spot 10 - Ideal anywhere in the home
    •  - Great Designs
    •  - Washable
    •  - Absorbent
    •  - Anti Slip
    •  - Made in the UK
    •  - Eco Friendly
    •  - Made with Recycled Materials
    •  - Indoor & Outdoor Options

     

    When should I replace it?

    Hug Rug mats are very high quality and should last a long time. For the best lifespan on the Eco Coir outdoor range keep it sheltered from the weather. The polyethylene outdoor mats will withstand even the wettest weather and can be simply hosed down to t keep them looking great.

    Moreover, the indoor mats have a 5-year guarantee. Wash and dry according to the instructions and the mats will serve you well for years to come.

  • Eco Coconut Matting the Traditional Coir Door Mats

    We have been making eco coconut matting the traditional coir door mats for a very long time. In fact, the roots of Make An Entrance stretch back to the 19th Century.

    Originally partially sighted and blind people made traditional coir door mats in workshops around the UK. They were run by the charity Royal National Institute for the Blind.

    Today we still stitch our traditional mats by hand in the same way we always have; they are made to size you need in a range of thicknesses to suit your needs.

    Eco Coconut Matting The Traditional Coir Door Mats Eco Coconut Matting The Traditional Coir Door Mat

    What Is A Hand Stitched Coir Mat?

    It is our partner in India who makes the giant rolls of coir. These rolls of coir are made specifically for us.

    Our craftsmen then take this Eco Coconut Matting cut it to the size you need, and hand finish your bespoke doormat here in the UK.  The same way they have been made for decades.

    What makes it Eco Coconut Matting?

    Coir fibre is a waste product. It's the fibrous husk that surrounds the coconut. Using coir to make doormats is a great environmental option. It uses a waste product to do a great job. Then at the end of its life is can be composted to help other plants grow.

    Because coir (coconut fibre) is totally biodegradable, when your mat eventually wears out you can simply throw it onto the compost heap.

    Any of our woven back coir mats can be classed as eco coconut matting as they're plastic free and totally biodegradable too.

  • Eco Large Door Mats Video

    Introducing Eco Large Door Mats:

    Our new Eco Large Door Mats are one of the products we are most proud of at Make An Entrance.

    Check out the video below to find out why:

    How  we make Eco Large Door Mats:

    We make these by hand on a traditional wooden hand loom in southern India. This gives them a very tight weave and firm pile. So they are extremely hard wearing.

    Our partner in India who makes the giant rolls of coir we use for our made to measure mats makes these mats specially for us.

    Because coir (coconut fibre) is totally biodegradable, when your mat eventually wears out you can simply throw it onto the compost heap.

    Coir fibre is a waste product. It's the fibrous husk that surrounds the coconut. Using coir to make doormats is a great environmental option. It uses a waste product to do a great job and then at the end of its life is can be composted to help other plants grow.

    Why we make them:

    At Make An Entrance we specialise in hard to find doormats. Because of this, people often come to us because they are struggling to find Eco Large Door Mats. These new 100% coir mats are a perfect choice. For instance, the biggest standard size is 123cm x 76cm which is already pretty huge. However, if that's not big enough for you we also do made to measure, as big as you like.
