My disappointment with this item is not so much with the product itself, but with the way it was shipped to me. I have ordered other holiday coir mats from this site and have generally been pleased with them. They are colorful and do a fine job of cleaning wet, muddy shoes and boots before they enter the house. The reindeer theme of this mat was not as bright and colorful as the fall mats I ordered previously. What really disappointed me was that the mat was sent unwrapped in a box with other items, most of them clothing. Coir sheds heavily and the box was full of shredded fibers. A pair on unwrapped cotton slacks was full of these fibers, as was the floor where I opened the package. It appeared that my order was quickly dumped into the shipping box without a thought for protecting the products being sent. This hasn't happened before and I certainly hope that I won't need to clean up any more packaging messes in the future.
