Colour Variation on the Natural fibres occur due to weaving irregularities and seasonal growing conditions.
Sisal is made from the leaf of an Agave plant which is family to the cactus plant. Sisal is stronger and more durable than other natural fibers. The fibers are extracted by crushing the pulpy leaf, washed, dried and graded before being spun into yarn. Sisal is well known for the great durability of its yarns and does not build up static nor trap dust. The natural colour of Sisal is an off white and thus all Sisals are dyed with vegetable dyes.
Sisal carpets and wall coverings have been widely used for decades thus still making it a perfect rug in your home or installing it wall to wall. Our range of Sisal is the biggest in our collection with various colours and weaves. Depending on the weave some sisal will feel a lot softer under foot than others. Sisal is recommended for any area in your home, except bathrooms and kitchens; reason being sisal will shrink with lots of water being put on it. Spot removal involves the use of a dry cleaning powder.
Seagrass carpet is an entirely natural product, grown and produced in the paddy fields of China, which are flooded with seawater during crop season. The seagrass is collected by hand and sundried, then spun into cords which are woven into the designs used for floor coverings.
As a carpet, seagrass is smooth and shiny, and can therefore be used in lots of different places around your home. Due to its shiny, sometimes slippery, surface it is best to avoid covering stairways in seagrass for safety reasons.
In comparison to all natural fibres, seagrass is cheaper yet versatile. Due to the surface of the seagrass it is not the softest to walk on. Seagrass carpet is said to reduce noise. We are able to install Seagrass wall to wall as well as custom made rugs.
We stock our seagrass in roll form 4m wide latex backed. This is a chinese product and therefore has a sponge latex with decreases the price in comparison to that of Sisal, Coir and Jute/Hemp. We also offer seagrass in a square form 30cm x 30cm (estimated) and this can be made into any size in multiples of 30cm. This option cannot be fitted wall to wall.

Natural Fiber Rug Care & Maintenance
Natural fibers are a beautiful and easy-to-live-with addition to any home. Caring for a Hemp/Jute Rug is no different than caring for other rugs, fine fabrics and furniture in your home. In our Care & Maintenance Guides, you will find tips and guidelines on how to care for your new rug. With proper care and maintenance, your Hemp/Jute rug will bring beauty and enjoyment to your home for many years.
Natural fiber rugs may experience "sprouting" which is when small fibers stick up from the rug some time after installation. Sprouting is common with rugs made from shorter fibers that are loosely woven.
Sprouting occurs with predominately jute fibers. Jute fibers are short when compared to sisal fibers, and because our jute rugs are made from handspun jute yarn, the short fibers have a natural tendency to pop out. This is part of the natural character of these rugs, which are also hand-braided and hand-sewn.
