This rug is great for indoor or out. It is hand-woven from Alaskan Fisherman rope/line that we are recycling. The rope rug is very durable and will last a very long time.
The size is approximately (with in 1 inch) 36″ x 15″ and is greenish rope with dark gray speckles throughout the line with silver outline wrap. Tightly woven.
. You can clearly see in this rug that this rope has some sun and wear to it as it has been used to catch a lot of fish over the years but it is still very durable and makes for a great sturdy rug.
This mat is great for beach houses or ideal for anyone with a nautical design. We live by the sea and they are just great to have at every door way to wipe feet.
Can be washed in cold water and is best with cold water hose outside and then lay flat for drying in sun.
Great gifts for friends that have everything or to treat yourself to a recycled item.
I will be happy to make custom rugs for you so please don’t hesitate to contact me through this listing and tell me what you have in mind. We have tons of line/rope on our property in Kodiak Island Alaska that we are having fun recycling the fisherman gear into something of use with a unique look.

Robert & Anita Shane are the owners/artisans that founded Alaska Rug Company. Alaska Rug Company is an Eco-friendly company that uses 100% authentic Alaskan fishing line & rope to make beautiful handwoven durable doormats, throw rugs, pot holders, signs, baskets, bowls, curtain tie backs, trivets, letters and so much more.
The Shane’s own and live year round at a remote 100 year old decommissioned cannery on Kodiak Island, Alaska. Their home, Port Bailey Cannery, is on the NW side of Kodiak Island Archipelago and can only be accessed by plane or boat. In the winter of 2010, Robert and Anita decided to quit smoking and knew they needed a more focused approach to their creativity. With warehouses full of discarded fishing line, they soon filled the long winter days and nights learning new designs and knots to create a variety of nautical rugs. Their love of the beauty and challenges that living remote presents to them has expanded their artistic vision. This style of living has taught them to be creative in re-purposing forgotten items into unique one of a kind art.
The Shane’s are committed to up-cycling as many materials as they can into beautiful handcrafted art.
