Our Story

Hello and welcome to Atlantic Mats.  We’re Susan and Mark and founded Atlantic Mats in 2021 with the aim of developing sustainable, high-quality, durable doormats.

I have worked in the textile industry for over 30 years, beginning my career in the fashion industry then moving into interiors, specifically, floor coverings. I joined James Turtle at The Turtle Mat Company in 2002 and worked on various projects including launching their range of design mats which have gone on to great success building the company into a multi million pound concern. Following the sale of Turtle Mat to a large American corporate I moved on and have now started Atlantic Mats. 

Mark, my husband worked in IT for the oil industry for 30 years. He spent many hours at sea working on seismic boats in all weathers and sometimes in treacherous conditions.

So, we know a few things about mats and how they can help to keep your floor clean and dry.

All too often, doormats are regarded as disposable, when they get dirty we tend to discard them, we wanted to find a solution that was kind to the environment, long-lasting and decorative.

In our pursuit to reduce waste and protect our limited resources, we developed Ocean Mats, a range of hard-wearing, washable doormats.

The Ocean Mat range is made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon made from waste such as fishing nets from the fish farming industry and other waste. The dirt-trapping pile is 100% recycled and the anti-slip backing also contains recycled content. The mats are washable and can be used again and again.  They also dry quickly, so there’s need to use additional resources to dry them.

We are passionate about preserving our marine environment and have teamed up with Healthy Seas. We donate a percentage of the sales from every Ocean Mat to support the work they do in rescuing ghost fishing nets and plastics found in our seas.

Our sister brand Cotswold Rope uses traditional techniques and UK sourced materials to produce baskets, fruit bowls, trays and doormats. The baskets look great filled with plants and are equally useful for all types of storage. Available in four sizes and seven colours, there is something for all colour schemes and uses.

Cotswold Rope doormats are made from a hard-wearing recyclable rope. Each mat is handmade, celebrating the craft of weaving. These long-lasting mats can be used outdoor and indoor and are stylish as well as functional. They are great teamed with Ocean Mats and together offer the very best in trapping dirt at the door.
