Abyss Habidecor Buyers Guide: Comparing Abyss Double Bath Mat to Habidecor Must, Reversible and À La Carte Bath Rugs

RSS

Choosing luxury towels, bath mats, and rugs can turn any bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Bath towels are an investment, and picking your perfect towel is a process. Similarly, it is well worth taking the time to understand the various options when choosing bathroom floor coverings.

Abyss Bath Mats and Habidecor Rugs

One of Fine Linen and Bath's signature towel lines is Abyss, which is well-known for its spa-quality towel collections, including the popular Super Pile style. Abyss makes bath mats to coordinate with Super Pile, Twill, and its other luxury towels; its sister company, Habidecor, is the rug division that makes bath rugs to match the Abyss towel and bath mat styles.

As one of the nation's leading online retailers of Abyss Habidecor products, we are often asked to explain the differences between the company's line of Abyss bath mats and Habidecor bath rugs.

What is a Bath Mat?

A bath mat is made to sit directly outside the shower or tub and is designed to catch moisture and prevent slips; it is lighter in weight, highly absorbent, and most often made of cotton terry, similar to a thick towel.

What is a Bath Rug?

A bath rug is meant to go anywhere on the bathroom floor and is more often used as a decorative accessory. It is heavier in weight, typically made of combed cotton, and often has a canvas or non-slip backing.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at all the wonderful features and benefits of Abyss Double Bath Tub Mats and Habidecor Must and Reversible Rugs.

Abyss Double Bath Tub Mat

The Abyss Double bath mat features exceptional quality with a handmade finish and is available in more than 60 eye-catching colors. Made of a long-looped terry, the Double mat is essentially twice the thickness of Abyss Super Pile Towels with a similar weave. This makes the Double bath mat soft, durable, and lightweight enough to wash regularly. It is made from 100% Giza Egyptian Extra Long Staple cotton. It comes in two sizes however; custom-sized mats can be made to order directly from the factory in Portugal. Please contact us for pricing details.
