Frequently asked questions about Mauve Paper Co. and my services.
How long will it take for my door mat to be made?
Each door mat is made to order. I aim to complete them in one week, but during peak times it can be up to two weeks.
How can I request a custom design?
There are two ways to do this. You can place an order under the custom mat section in the Collections. You can fill in a bit of a description on what you would like designed. I will then email you with proofs and will not paint until you give me your 100% approval. Another way is to e-mail me prior to placing your order at email@example.com - I'll be happy to help you!
Do you have any promotions?
Yes! If you purchase a layering rug with a custom door mat, you get $5 off with code 5OFF.
What makes your door mats high quality?
The 99.5% coir door mat is an environmentally sustainable choice for outdoor decor. I selected this material because of its environmental friendliness and because of its equally great look. I then hand paint each door mat with a PREMIUM outdoor paint that was described to me as 'meant to be stepped on'. It is UV resistant to prevent fading. The paint dries to a beautiful bold black and makes your mat a beautiful statement piece for your front door.
How can I care for my mat?
The key to prolonging the life of your door mat is to keep it away from water. Over time, the more water these mats absorb, the more they will begin shedding their individual fibres. I have found that bringing it in on a rainy or snowy day has really kept my own mat at home alive longer. To clean your mat, shake outside or lightly vacuum over it.
Do you do gift packages for weddings?
Yes I do! I offer bulk pricing for the glass mugs, wine glasses, and champagne glasses. I offer paper details as well such as name cards and custom boxes.
