Spotted at Summer House , my local housewares shop in Mill Valley: doormats made from recycled fire hoses. Unexpectedly appealing and indisputably durable ("think what they've been through," says their maker, the Oxgut Hose Company), the mats range in price from $165 for a 2-by-3-foot size and go up to $250 for the 3-by-4-foot size. Go to Oxgut Hose Company for more information. Above: A Black Trim w/1 Color Fire Hose Mat edged in heavy-duty black Polypropylene webbing trim. Emeryville, CA-based Oxgut sources decommissioned hoses from U.S. Fire Departments.

We've found great doormats at all price ranges.  See 10 Easy Pieces: Durable Doormats and  The Humble Doormat, Made Modern . Like the idea of striped doormats made from recycled lobster float rope?
