Bay Area Artist Turns Recycled Wine Corks Into Cool Doormats


There’s nothing more whine-worthy than cleaning your abode. Well, put a cork in it: Bay Area-based recycle artist Sally Stokes has found the perfect pairing to ease our dirt trackin’ woes. She’s turned her full-bodied wine cork collection into stylish doormats. 

Hand-made from 284 corks, these durable greeters are solidly laced together in a basket weave-style, allowing debris to easily fall between the holes. Admittedly obsessed with collecting corks everywhere she goes from restaurants to wine tasting sojourns to worldly travels, Stokes crafts the doormats from her overflowing assemblage. But share your own stockpile and she’ll custom-make a welcoming keepsake just for you. Here’s to wiping your feet!

Available on Stokes’ Etsy shop, SarahRacha, $120
