Created by Kristine Five Melvær, one of Norway’s leading designers, Heymat+ is inspired by water, vegetation and zen gardens. The decorative 3D patterns also ensure a scratch effect that efficiently deals with dirt and grime. 'The sand, water, and vegetation-inspired motifs bring to mind the calming effects of designs made in soft sand, and add a tranquil presence to your threshold'.

Like all Heymat’s products, Heymat+ comes with anti-slip backing in nitrile rubber, a partially recycled material. Heymat+ is part of a Heymat’s strategy to make both production and products as environmentally friendly as possible. The process started in 2017, when the company replaced nylon with PET, a material made from 50% recycled plastic with improved absorption capacity . Heymat+ by Heymat

'The mats aren’t just environmentally friendly because they are recycled, but their high quality ensures a long life', says designer Five Melvær. 'It’s up to me to create a design that makes the customer want to use it for that same amount of time'.
