I love the design on this welcome mat, it's really pretty, and because it's rubber, it's not messy like my other mat, which was coir. There is only one problem, I have two dogs who love to hang out on this mat, the dogs are black, the mat is light, dog hair are very visible on it. But it's my mistake, for not thinking of that when buying the mat. Otherwise, I recommend it to all! The rubber smell went away on the next day.
Gorgeous! Scarlet poppies seem to pop out at you when the mat is welcoming your feet! I love this colorful addition to my otherwise drab front door entrance. It is smooth and I'm not yet sure re: water and soil resistance as its only a couple days on the stoop. Very pretty and cheery though!
