Jute Area Rugs
Home SitemapFlooring Tips

Jute area rugs are now making their way into the home decorating scene.

Jute is the finest and softest natural floor covering materials. Its soft texture makes jute rugs a welcome choice for bedroom floors, but jute is not a practical material for areas of heavy wear.

Jute fibers are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose, lignin, and pectin. A long, shiny fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads, the fibers are off-white to brown and 3 to 15 feet long.  Jute is a rainy season crop that grows best in warm, humid climates. China, India, and Bangladesh rank as the world's main producers of jute. 

These features make jute area rugs a natural choice for families concerned with allergies and the environment.
