Fique just gets better with use, these mats will soften beautifully but remain strong and can endure years of heavy use. They don’t like being washed or soaked but are unlikely to stain due to their natural water repellent qualities. The best way to care for your fique mat is to air it out regularly, if it gets wet, make sure it dries out well before using on the floor again.
