There are so many benefits of using raw, eco-friendly flooring mats. Natural floor rugs are made of many materials, several of which include Leather, Jute, Hemp, Cotton, Wool, and Bamboo. In addition to the benefits of better health and cleanliness, incorporating sustainable materials in your home creates a cosy, organic environment for you and your family. This, not to mention the fact that natural rugs add character and vitality to any room, making this carpet types one of the most popular choices in Australian homes to date....
Many natural rug materials are made from rapidly renewable strands that come from plants, such as Jute, Bamboo, and Fleece. As it grows, they can be harvested again and again, causing no harm to the environment at any stage. Due to the wool rugs being made from raw materials, there’s no eco-damaging manufacturing involved. Sisal rugs, extracted from the leaves of the ‘Agave Sisalana’ plant, are the most popular of the plant materials used for making natural rugs.
This plant is native to Central America but is now grown worldwide, especially in Java, East Africa, and Mexico. This is the only plant-based carpet material; the name has come to be used generically for all plant-based and organic carpet materials. This plant material has long, fine strands that allow it to be made into smooth, textured yarn. Natural Sisal rugs are anti-static, sound absorbent, flame repellent, and long-lasting, all of which make these carpets a great option to consider for any home.
Natural Jute Rugs in Australia are made from stem plants, coming mainly from India and China. This raw material is well-suited for making durable yarns and fabrics because of its stability and firmness. Like other plant material such as agave and coir, this organic ingredient has a nice look when made into carpet, but it can be coarse and is susceptible to stains. This is just one of the reasons that organic and synthetic carpet materials might be blended together to make area mats. Natural Jute rugs are a great choice for high traffic areas and give a relaxed boho or beachy feel, they are popular choices for homes that aim to get that on-trend coastal, or Hamptons look.
Finally, Natural wool rugs are a great choice for those who are wanting a raw and real look to their home with all the comfort and softness of a man-made material. This carpet is ideal for the environmentally conscious as it is harvested from sheep, which makes it fully sustainable for the environment. Felted wool rugs are made using unspun fleece material, giving them that very popular soft, “fluffy” feel. They are hand-loomed most commonly in India and are produced one mat at a time by select artisans which have been practising the craft for years, making each piece individual as the next in size, colour, and overall look. There are many choices of natural rugs online here at The Rug Lady! Our felted carpets are one of our best sellers as they work well in most styles and spaces. They usually also come in organically muted colours that accentuate surrounding décor, as opposed to colourful, patterned carpets that work specifically with certain products and home pieces.
