Strength and Style

Entryways are a difficult space to style! It’s the first area that your guests see when entering your home, as well as the first space you are welcomed to every day. In one sense, you want your entryway to feel inviting and comforting, but you also want it to be very functional. An entryway can very quickly become crowded with shoes, jackets, hats, purses, book-bags, mail, keys… should we go on? While we might not be able to help with the entryway organization, we can help with a durable and trendy rug! Natural Fiber rugs are not prone to collecting dirt like a wool or polypropylene rug, instead, they are designed to function more like a mat. Depending on the size of your entryway, we believe that our jute runner rugs are perfect for most entryways or hallways in general!

Comfy Bedroom Rugs

Some people seem to think that natural fiber rugs are really hard and scratchy. However, we’re here to let you know that we only sell soft jute rugs! Now we don’t mean to say that they will feel like a shag rug, but they also don’t feel scratchy or prickly in any way. In fact, a lot of people think that jute rugs feel like a foot a massage when they step on them! One of our favorite ways to decorate with jute rugs in the bedroom is by layering! There’s just something about a bed frame paired with a rectangular rug and an even larger jute area rug underneath of it all! On top of using natural fiber rugs as a rug pad, you can also put rugs pads beneath natural fiber rugs. This will ensure the rug will stay in place since it is more like a mat.

The Perfect Compliment to Neutral Colors

If you enjoy beige furniture, white walls, and overall neutral colors, you will be surprised by how much a jute rug can offer a subtle space like the living room. Sometimes, trying to add a rug to a room with a lot of light colors can completely change the appearance of the room because the rug becomes the center of attention. This is where jute rugs come in! A natural tan jute rug can effortlessly tie together light furniture and walls, without stealing the show. In fact, these creamy, white, and beige elements will all function better with the complement of a natural fiber rug! 

FAQ’s:

I’m wondering how to clean a jute rug?

Depending on the size of your rug, an effective and easy method for cleaning is to simply shake your rug outside. However, for large rugs, we do recommend vacuuming. Be sure to turn off the vacuum bristles bar before hand. The bar could possibly damage the jute fibers accidentally. For spot cleaning a jute area rug, use water and a scrub brush.

What are seagrass rugs?

Many people wonder what the differences of jute vs. seagrass rugs are and there are actually quite a few. The seagrass rugs originated in India as durable material that is made into many different decor pieces other than rugs. Seagrass often grows near coral reefs or shallow waters where there is plenty of sunlight. To create the seagrass material, the plant is picked and dried. Once weaved into a rug, seagrass adds more dimension and texture than jute. Seagrass is very durable and tough, making seagrass rugs perfect for high-traffic areas.  

How big are your jute area rugs?

All of our jute rugs are available in the following sizes: 2' x 3', 2' x 8' runner, 4' x 6', 5' x 7', and 8' x 10'. Our largest size would be an 8' x 10' jute rug- perfect for the living room or dining room. We can also create custom rugs that can be made into larger sizes. 

Is there a difference between sisal and jute?

Sisal is created from the leaves of cacti plants. Sisal rugs are slightly more durable than jute. However, jute area rugs are softer than sisal rugs and easier to clean. Sisal fibers are naturally absorbent, making them prone to stains.
