Rothay Draught Excluder
There is nothing seemingly quite so cold as a wintry draught under a door when you are settling down to watch some TV in the evening. An otherwise cozy room can become chilled to the point of discomfort in just a few minutes. However, this is easy to fix with a lovely knitted draught excluder.
The Rothay Draught Excluder features a deeply textured design and can be made for both inset and flush doors so that every cold draught is kept at bay. Tailor one to fit your draughty door and you will be cozy in no time.
