About Matterly

Matterly eco friendly doormats made in the USAMatterly was born from a desire to provide mats that are beautiful AND highly functional. For years, people have been using doormats that are typically EITHER beautiful (but not really designed to handle the rigors of a doorway) OR fairly functional (but not really all that pretty to look at). We wanted to create mats that could do both - keep your floors clean and dry AND be a beautifully-crafted textile you were proud to display in the place that is often someone's first impression of your home. And we wanted these mats to be made in America with materials sourced in the USA, preferably recycled materials, whenever possible. We wanted the mats to be affordable, but more importantly, we wanted them to be valuable - meaning they provide a return on the investment rather than being "throw-away" items that last a few months and then end up in a landfill.

Entryways have several unique challenges that aren't typically met by traditional doormats. Entryways see lots of traffic and therefore shuffling feet, moisture, and dirt/debris. And entryways are often exposed to the elements, including direct sunlight and tracked debris and moisture.

For those not willing to sacrifice durability or design, we provide floor coverings that work for your home and with your home. Our easy-to-clean mats are designed to withstand the day-to-day realities of high traffic areas, indoors or out. We’re committed to offering a quality mat that is as beautiful as it is functional, because what you put on your floor matters. 

The Matterly difference:

Good Form Beautiful aesthetics with quality texture.  Our mats are truly art on your floor
Good Function High performance mats that actually help keep dirt and moisture off your floors. Durable, long-lasting and thoughtfully designed
Good Neighbor Made from sustainable materials that are Non-toxic, fire safe, and latex free.  Made in the USA and family owned

NEIGHBURLY

Neighburly was designed to provide the popular look of a coco mat, but with far more function and longevity. Coco mats have a lot of drawbacks that you can learn more about in our  Say No-No to Coco blog.

  • The low profile design makes Neighburly user-friendly for visitors who shuffle their feet, which is all of us sometimes but is particularly important for the elderly and toddlers to minimize the likelihood of a tripping accident.
  • The PET surface is coarse and tightly woven so it effectively removes debris from shoes and can withstand heavy traffic. It's also incredibly eco-friendly with 85% recycled content.

HOW NEIGHBURLY GOT ITS NAME

The tightly-woven looped fibers give Neighburly its unique look and feel. The coarseness of the fibers gives it a beautiful texture and make it highly effective at removing debris. Many have described the mat's texture as being reminiscent of burlap. When you combine that with its warm, welcoming appearance and its overall user-friendliness for everyone ages 1 to 99, Neigh burly seemed like the perfect name!

NEEDLE & TREAD

Needle & Tread was specifically designed to handle the rigors that come with outside exposure - heavy tracking, moisture, and direct sunlight.

  • The bi-level surface design features peaks designed to clean your shoes and valleys designed to trap the dirt/debris/moisture and keep it off your floors.
  • The fibers that make up the surface of the mat are highly resistant to fading. While you will experience some loss of color over time (because the sun always wins in the end), these fibers will hold their color for an incredibly long time (years). You will see some fading, but it will happen very slowly, so much so that you likely won't notice it until years later, and even then only when you compare it to a brand new mat of the same color.
  • The surface is designed to dissipate moisture so it dries quickly, and it also contains anti-microbial fibers to destroy odor-causing bacteria (which are particularly problematic in wet areas where mats are often located).

HOW NEEDLE & TREAD GOT ITS NAME

The unique construction of the Needle & Tread surface is made by a process called "needle-punch." Needle-punching adds structure to an otherwise unstructured ball of fibers. The mat's rubber backing contains recycled rubber from car tires, and it's uniquely treaded to prevent the mat from moving and skidding across your floor. So your needle-punch mat has tread. Needle & Tread!

SIZING

Lastly, when we conceived Matterly, we wanted to provide mats that fit your lifestyle and your doorway! For years, doormats have been made largely in one size, specifically for a single door entry. At Matterly, we wanted to provide a mat that fit double door and sliding door entries as those are found in a large and growing number of homes. That's why you'll see the bulk of our door mats available in two sizes - single door and double door.

WHAT'S NEXT

We're currently working on a few new products, and while we're not ready to tell you exactly what they are, you can certainly count on them being highly functional AND beautiful. Because what you put on your floor matters.
