Sisal

Also known as Agave Sisalina, is a strong, green spiky bush which flourishes in the sub-tropical climate of Tanzania and Kenya. The giant leaves of the Sisal Agave plant are the raw material for sisal carpets. These leaves are then harvested and the mesophyll washed out. The fibres are then cleaned, washed and dried in the sun and finally finished, treated, spun and finally woven. It is latex backed for stability and to prevent slipping on wooden or tiled floors.

Sisal is a top end flooring option ideal for all areas of the home especially Dining and Lounge areas. Sisal rugs are beautiful and will complement all furniture and decor settings. Sisal rugs with a choice of acrylic or leather trims will enhance all settings

Seagrass

As its name implies, is a grass. It is grown in the paddy fields of China, and at a certain time of the growing season, the fields are flooded with seawater, hence the name Seagrass. After harvesting and drying, the Seagrass is spun into a strong yarn suitable for weaving. Its impermeability makes it hard to dye, so most products are natural in colour. It is latex backed for stability and to prevent slipping on wooden or tiled floors..

Seagrass is an ideal all-rounder and works especially well in high traffic domestic areas with dogs and children.

It is stain resistant as it has a low absorption ability and therefore pools when spills are made giving one enough time to fetch an absorbent cloth before this becomes a stain. Coffee and wine spills are then easy to clean. Seagrass is hard wearing, durable and affordable. It also has a rich and earthy smell Seagrass rugs are also ideal in an outdoor covered patio area.
