The mat is very large and very heavyweight rubber. It's to be given as a gift, so I have not opened the package. What left me a bit nonplussed was the little fiber letter disc being loose in the package when it arrived. I have no idea whether the user has to glue the thing in or not. That's the only reason why I did not rate it as excellent.
I got two of these mats hoping to keep the dirt from outside on the outside. They seem like good quality and look nice, time will tell if they work or last. I do think it is difficult to give a review when a product is fresh and new. I like things to last, I take care of them so they do. I put a lot of thought into my purchases for that reason....so ask me again in a couple of years, or maybe 10.
It is really pretty and great for the price. I didnt really think about the fact that it is a little pointless if you actually wanted to wipe your feet though. Only the center part where the letter is, would work for wiping shoes clean because the rest is rubber. I dont like that the center letter is not glued down and slips out easily. I think I will probably try to super glue it down. If you are looking for something pretty, but nonfunctional, its great!
