The coir doormats are recommended to use in a covered area to be sheltered from the elements. When coir doormats get wet and cannot dry properly, the fibers can soak up the water. The water then pushes the natural coconut oil to the surface of the fibers giving it a darker and stained appearance. This can also deteriorate the design causing it to fade quickly. Shedding is expected in the beginning while loose fibers from manufacturing are knocked out. Giving your mat a gentle shake can speed the process up. doormats are made from all-natural coir fibers, making them eco-friendly. They feature a vinyl back for durability and sturdiness.
