Story Behind the Art:
The elder in a village coordinates several villages/families to get carvings done. They disperse the raw wood bought for each order to each group and then collect the rough carvings for delivery. Most carvers are just family operations and the carving is done when they want to. There are cycles based on the rice or other agricultural seasons where they can only get limited carving done. Over the years they have developed designs that have become popular.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I really like the spa mat . . . it's outside of my tub and feels elegant on the floor--there is none of the sogginess you get from a fabric mat, so it feels comfortable and stays clean. It looks very well made and is beautifully designed. The only complaint is that it can be a little wobbly, but that could be because the of tiling on the floor. I'm really happy I ordered it!Read More
Folks, I don't know where the comment about "cracks" and "splinters" comes from; permit me -- a tough sell on the quality of _cantaloupes_ let alone upscale bath accessories -- tell you how pleasantly surprised I was to open my teak bath mat and discover a product in which conspicuous attention to the aesthetics of the wood was apparent. Firstly, you can dismiss the comments about splinters: This product is not only sanded down to the "slightly furry" texture you would expect any hardwood that has been oiled properly to have, I cannot for the life of me see how you would be able to crack one of these planks. My DH weighs almost 300 LBS. people: If he can stand for minutes on end without cracking it, IT WON'T CRACK. End of discussion! lol As for the slightly "furry" surface of the wood . . . Honestly, do I have to explain this to people tsk? The finish is produced that way deliberately SO YOU DON'T SLIP. You're not buying this to display a vase on, you're buying it to safely enter & exit your tub, allowing the water to drain underneath and collect on whatever (hopefully rubber-backed if this is for your indoor bathroom, as mine is) rug you have beneath the mat. The "furry" properties of the teak are extremely soft when dry, and become SOFTER when wet because the wood expands. And let's talk about the wood. I appreciate that men might consider the presence of a knothole to be a structural deficiency; but this isn't a joist, it's a bathroom accessory. When I opened our box I _HOPED_ there would be at least one knot to give the mat "character." Not only were there two knots, the grain was carefully selected to "differentiate" any naturally-occurring pattern it might otherwise have made. The result is the arresting "contrast" of colors/patterns that you see in the picture displayed. Do you want the mat to look like someone painted it? OF COURSE YOU DON'T! We were additionally impressed by the care that went into the tooling of this product: The edges of the slats have been rounded so that well-endowed among us won't have sharp wood angles digging into the tender flesh of their feet when they stand on the mat and towel down. Turn the mat over, and you'll discover that the screw holes which hold the unit together have been lovingly PLUGGED AND SANDED with teak plugs!! Tell me the last time you saw THAT in a piece of furniture, eh? The DH was just blown away by this one feature. We procured this teak bath mat because we're installing a 42 X 72" whirlpool bathtub with a somewhat daunting depth; so in addition to being just an exquisite (and practical) bathroom accessory, the mat provides a nice 2" LIFT to help me climb into the tub. The spacing between the slats . . . the oiled & sanded nature of the wood . . . the 4 planks which support the mat . . . the furry "grip" properties of the wood . . . All of this combines to add both safety and beauty to your bathroom. It isn't so big that it can't fit in most bathrooms; it isn't so tiny that it looks feeble. It's PERFECT and I can't recommend it highly enough. I am so glad we didn't get the cheap bamboo one O sells as well. This was worth every penny, and more. :)Read More
I bought this mat along with the teak stool for an outdoor shower. The wood color and grain is beautiful and they are both extremely well constructed. Amazing quality for this price.Read More
It is very similar to pictured and is exactly what I needed. I finished it with Teak Oil for a richer finish.Read More
This is perfect to use for the hot tub!Read More
The slats are too far apart, a generous one inch spacing between only six slats so it is not very practical for bare feet.Read More
For me, 17 1/2" was important! To use in our small bathroom for a newly constructed walk-in shower and still have clearance for the door to open and close I needed a bathmat under 18"! This fit. When I saw it, I thought--well, there's an idea... I'm glad I did. It is a very good-looking product for our remodeled bathroom. If people think a knot or two will compromise the structural integrity of something built this sturdily in the 1st place, they are pretty ignorant of the properties of wood.Read More
Ordered for the muddy landing field in the back yard at the bottom of deck stairs, which the dog was churning up badly. It's not meant for that kind of hard use, but it's working great and the grass is growing back. Good price made it worth trying. I'd add that the wood is smooth enough to easily use as it was designed, outside a shower or bathtub.Read More
This mat is so ugly. It literally looks like it's straight from a delivery crate flat.Read More
