Design Within Reach Plush Bathmat
The DWR Plush Bathmat (2017) is crafted from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton using an innovative spinning process that creates wonderfully plush material with ample surface area for the yarns, translating into superb absorbency for you. It’s woven into a nice 1,200-gram weight, and features long loops on both sides, creating a pile with cloud-like softness. Even after repeated washings, this bathmat maintains its fluffy appearance and soft feel. Machine washable. Made in Turkey. Photo Courtesy of Design Within Reach

Matouk Milagro Bath Mat

Tosaryu Hinoki Bath Mat
Bask in the fragrance of a Hinoki forest for a moment of sublime peace and relaxation. Change the look of your ordinary bathroom to a spa-like setting by adding this Aroma Bath Mat by Tosaryu. After enjoying a long shower or bath, the first thing you notice is the aroma that is being produced by the bath mat, followed by the natural wood feeling you get by standing on it. The wood used is the Japanese Hinoki Cypress, which has a high resistance to mold and mildew, meaning that you do not have to worry about washing the bath mat every so often like your standard cloth bath mat. The surface is moulded to prevent any slipping as well as it promotes drainage and evaporation. Photo Courtesy of Jinen
Coyuchi Temescal Organic Bath Mat
Temescal Organic Bath Mats are deliciously soft, light, and fluffy, yet still extremely absorbent and quick to dry. The bath mat is made from long-staple organic Turkish cotton that’s spun into a lightweight yarn, then woven with narrow vertical channels for added drying power. Where conventional towels made with chemical softeners can be waxy to the touch and actually repel water, ours are naturally soft, plush, and thirsty without feeling thick or heavy.

Design Within Reach Aerocotton Bathmat
The DWR Aerocotton Bathmat (2013) is crafted from pure Turkish cotton using an innovative spinning process that creates wonderfully plush, ultra-soft material with ample surface area for the yarns, translating into superb absorbency for you. It’s woven into a nice 1200-gram weight, and then combed for even more softness. In keeping with a simple modern aesthetic, it eschews the traditional dobby and includes a functional tag that doubles as a hanger, convenient for getting it off the floor when mopping. Even after repeated washings, this bathmat maintains its fluffy appearance and soft touch. Machine washable. Made in Turkey. Photo Courtesy of Design Within Reach
The Citizenry Agara Bath Mat - Black
A stunning bath rug, with subtle cream threading throughout and tassels that are completely woven by hand. It’s durable, absorbent, and incredibly soft, making it an essential to any bath. Pro tip: It also makes for an adorable accent rug in a kitchen or bedroom. Each bath rug takes over a day to complete, all handcrafted in a fair trade weaving cooperative right outside of Marrakech.
Soil Gem Bath Mat
Made with an all-new, highly absorbent material called GEM, this bath mat will soak up water quickly, dry naturally, and has a pleasing organic texture that feels great underfoot. A unique mixture of Keisodo (diatomaceous earth) and vermiculite creates a complex and highly porous structure for superior, all-natural absorption. The center line has a depression to enhance absorb-ability and prevent the mat from sticking to skin.
Chilewich Round Shag Bath Mat
No cold feet here. Tubside splashes don’t stand a chance when this soft shag mat is close by. The quick-drying, tufted texture is a treat for the toes, and with that vinyl backing, you can say bye to slips and slides. Oh, and this overachiever is mold, mildew, and chlorine resistant. When it’s time for a quick cleanup, just shake it out, grab a vacuum, or hose it down. This one’s so durable that we may have to grab a couple extra for the mudroom and patio.

Nodi Cotton Bathmat
After studying textile design at the Institute of Design in Milan, Olivia spent time in India learning the ins and outs of weaving. Upon returning to her native New Zealand, she then founded Nodi, which specializes in producing natural handmade rugs. The Nodi Cotton Bathmat (2017), like all other pieces from her company, is crafted on a traditional wooden loom by skilled artisans in a GoodWeave® factory, ensuring child labor is never used. It’s neutral in color with short fringe on the sides and long fringe on the ends. Machine washable. Made in India. Photo Courtesy of Design Within Reach
Cold Picnic Death Valley Bath Mat

Coyuchi Cloud Loom Organic Bath Mat
Woven with similarly long loops as our Cloud Loom towels this mat is woven to a thick 1200 grams per square meter so it’s absorbent and supersoft on bare feet. It’s finished with a neat self-hem all around. Photo Courtesy of Coyuchi
Blomus Relax Bamboo Mat
Flat-out fantastic. Made of stained bamboo, this mat is like a little zen underfoot. Pop it by the front door or even bedside to add some textural relief to low-pile carpet. It comes in an array of soothing teak-y browns and grays with just a subtle hint of green peaking through. A fabric border brings it all together with a tidy finish and a non-slip backing won’t let it budge. Photography by Rocky Luten
Parachute Looped Bath Rug
Soft, absorbent and warm underfoot, this rug adds comfort and style anywhere in the bathroom. Available in a tubside size and a long runner, fit for a jack and jill sink. Photo Courtesy of Parachute

Blomus Piana Cotton Bath Mat
Walk softly. Complete your bathroom’s calming, minimalist vibe with this soft and subtle number: It’s constructed with dense, tight loops to create a durable weave. And since it feels so great underfoot, you’ll know that you’ve made the right choice every time you step out of the shower. Oh, and here’s a tip: This softy pairs swimmingly with the sleek, minimalist toilet brush and bathroom accessories from the same maker. Photography by Ty Mecham & Rocky Luten
Skagerak Teak Bathroom Mat
Eschewing the traditional, the Teak Bathroom Mat (1998) is constructed of – you guessed it – solid teak. Designed by architect Mogens Holmriis, recognized for his teak chairs and tables, this mat provides a refreshing alternative to other varieties. It comes fully assembled with stainless steel hardware for durability and is fitted with two full-length natural rubber feet that prevent slippage and protect tile floors from marring. Like all teak products, it will develop a rich, silvery patina over time, or it can be treated with teak oil to maintain its original luster. This mat serves as an excellent complement to our Cutter Collection. Made in U.S.A. Photo Courtesy of Design Within Reach
Coyuchi Mosaic Canyon Organic Bath Rug
Woven by hand from organic cotton, our accent rug’s pattern is defined by pebbled texture and nature-inspired color. Its soft, absorbent pile is perfect beside the tub and equally welcome in front of a door or beside the bed - anywhere you want a cozy, cushioned layer between bare feet and hard floors.
