Adding a bit of exotic texture to your bedroom or living room can be easy with an area rug made from natural jute fiber.  Jute is also called hessian and it is a long, veggie – like fiber that gets spun into strands that are commonly found in burlap fabric.  The rugs made from this natural fiber are often woven by hand and are organic pieces of home décor.  Here are a few reasons why buying a natural fiber jute rug will be the ideal choice for you and your family.

  1. It doesn’t matter what room you put one in, a jute rug will add texture to it. When you are of the mind to add a unique touch to your flooring, an area rug made from jute can be the ideal way to achieve this.  Look for jute braided rugs that have been hand woven.  You can use these rugs in your home’s entry way or anywhere else in your home as a complement to the other furnishings.  You may even be able to find a sisal jute rug – which combines the jute fiber with anther natural fiber called sisal – and if you do, you will see that these rugs will add a smooth texture to your home while accenting any natural wood in the décor.
  2. Area rugs that are made from jute are durable. They are woven from fibers which are quite thick.  They are typically in a natural brown color and this means that any stains will be difficult to spot.  You can go ahead and vacuum your jute area rug in order to remove any dust or loose dirt from it, but it doesn’t even need this attention on a daily basis.  The weave of a jute rug is quite tight but that doesn’t mean that they can be placed in high traffic areas.  If you use your jute rug in areas that see a low amount of foot traffic, they can last you for many years to come.
  3. Rugs made from jute are friendly to the environment. Sure, you can spend a lot on one of those area rugs that are made by machines, but why would you do that when you can help the environment by getting a gorgeous rug made from renewable materials like jute?  These rugs made from natural fibers will add a raw yet stylish texture to your décor and when you are ready for a new look, they are both biodegradable and recyclable.  Jute grows fast too, so they are ultimately sustainable.
  4. Jute rugs go well with any type of décor. It doesn’t matter if your style is vintage or contemporary, natural area rugs such as those made from jute can be just the finishing touch that the space needs.
