Rug weaving is an ancient craft and although some modern rugs are still hand-made to the highest standards, there has been a proliferation of machine-made rugs using all types of fibres. Machine-made rugs are generally more affordable and, because of the variation in designs and colours, are used extensively in all forms of decoration.
Coir is made out of coconut fibre and is one of the most versatile materials ever extracted from Mother nature, the husks contain elastic and extremely strong fibers.
These husks are harvested and soaked for many months, and then beaten, washed and dried. Finally, the fibers are spun into yarn.
The natural colour of coir is golden brown to reddish brown and is suited for rustic environments. Coir fibre is 100 % organic, biodegradable, ethnic and hygienic. It is hard and strong, resistant to rot, moulds and moisture.
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.
