At AARVEN, we're thrilled to share the inspiring story behind our stunning door mats, which are crafted with care by a small collective in Tanzania, East Africa. Founded in 1991 by a group of remarkable women, this NGO is registered under the Societies Act of Tanzania and recognised as a vocational training centre by VEGA. Through workshops in tailoring, textiles, and sisal weaving, students learn valuable skills and create livelihoods for themselves. Our door mats are woven by Emmanual, the workshop leader, and each one is a unique piece of art. We're proud to offer these exceptional door mats, which not only enhance the beauty of your home but also support a sustainable and empowering cause. Thank you for choosing AARVEN, where every purchase makes a positive impact on the world.

To keep your hand loomed sisal doormat from AARVEN looking its best, there are a few care instructions to follow. First, shake the mat out regularly to remove any loose dirt or debris. For deeper cleaning, use a soft-bristled brush and mild soap mixed with water to gently scrub the mat. Lightly sponge off any residue soap with water and allow to air dry completely before using again. Avoid exposing the mat to excessive moisture or sunlight, which can cause it to deteriorate. With proper care, your hand woven sisal doormat will provide a durable and attractive welcome to your home for years to come.
