The mats & balls are handcrafted in Kim Son, located 100km from Hanoi, Vietnam. The region has been the epicenter of sedge and seagrass craftsmanship for 200 years. There, over 800 highly-skilled wicker craft artisans create mats, rugs and accessories, working for a fair wage. They take durable, attractive natural materials and hand-weave them into products of unrivaled beauty, quality, and functionality
WHY WILL BOTH OF YOU AND YOUR PETS BE IN LOVE WITH
Our seagrass mats and balls for bunnies, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchilla and pocket pets are natural and non-toxic,
offering a place to curl up and an interesting texture to chew!
Rodents and rabbits have teeth that are constantly growing, so it's vital you give your pet a variety of bunny chewing toys to prevent dental problems. While brightly-colored plastic toys may look appealing, they're often dyed with toxic chemicals that are dangerous for your pet. For your peace of mind and your pet's health, our mats are made of only natural, edible, 100% safe materials
Rabbits are susceptible to sore hocks when kept in wire-bottomed cages; likewise, guinea pigs can suffer injured feet through living in such an environment. Our 16.5" x 11" mats create a more suitable surface for your pet to walk and sleep on, preventing painful injuries and costly visits to the vet. These bunny beddings are also handy if your free-range pet dislikes vinyl or wooden floors!
The mats are expertly woven so they retain their shape even when chewed. The outer part will break but the inner fibers stay intact so your pet gets to enjoy their comfortable couch for longer. This also saves you the cost of constantly replacing your pet's mat. It is also water resistant, by placing this hamster bedding in your pet's cage, you won't need to spend hours scrubbing. Simply rinse the mat and leave to dry if it does become soiled.
Hide treats underneath the mat to stimulate your pet's foraging instincts. Use as a hamster chewing toy to keep your pocket pet entertained all night while you're asleep. Help your guinea pigs bond by letting them snuggle up together on their mat. The playtime possibilities are endless with MadeTerra mats and balls.
