If you’ve visited our sister site lately you’ve noticed that Natural Rug Co has added some new rugs products and we’re excited to tell you about them! Now, your first question might be: you added jute, paper shag, seagrass, silky shag and sisal rugs, those aren’t bamboo right? Correct! The new rugs we added are not bamboo but are equally as sustainable and eco-friendly. We thought it would be best to provide more variety for our customers seeking rugs for differing purposes.
So what is jute, paper shag, seagrass, silky shag and sisal? Well, that’s what this post is all about – here’s the explanation you’re looking for:
Jute is a hardy and naturally anti-static fiber which is spun into threads and comes from vegetables. You’ve most likely seen this fiber before as it is commonly used to make burlap. It’s extremely affordable – second only to cotton. Our jute rugs come from farms in India and Bangladesh.
Our Paper Shag rugs are unbelievably soft and add a modern twist to any space. Even better though, these rugs are extremely sustainable as they are made from recycled paper.
Seagrass is essentially what the name implies – a grass that grows in the sea. It is harvest for it’s flat fibers and natural coloring. Our seagrass rugs are never dyed — only the same colors as those found on the sea floor are acceptable for our rugs.
Our silky shag rugs feel like a spa treatment for your feet just when you walk on them. These rugs get their silky texture from the eco-friendly blended yarn consisting of 50% rayon made from bamboo and 50% cotton nike air max trainers cheap. Our rugs also come in four colors: crimson, coffee bean, beige and ivory.
