Sisal-Eco Friendly Area Rugs


Sisal-Eco Friendly Area Rugs are a smart choice for your home.

Sisal rugs are woven from a strong natural plant fiber, specifically coming from a cactus plant named Agava Sisalana that grows in Africa and Brazil.  Agava Sisalana has always been gardened for its internal, tensile fibers that people ultimately make into rope and twine. Grown without the use of fertilizers, the fibrous stalks are chopped, dried, and treated to produce tan-colored lengths. A popular destination for this twine is to be woven into sisal rugs for hard floor surfaces.

Since Sisal rugs and carpet are made from an all natural material, they are ideal for an environmentally friendly home. Sisal area rugs and carpet have characteristics of durability and resilience because of where they come from. Area rugs and carpet made from Sisal are strong and beautiful and can be a lasting addition to many rooms in your home including living rooms, bedrooms, offices, or hallways. People love the natural look of Sisal along with the rich texture that complements hardwood floors.

There are several benefits to choosing a Sisal area rug over area rugs made from a synthetic material. Sisal is naturally stain resistant, so you don’t need to use any chemical treatments around your family, pets or children. Sisal rugs are the perfect choice for high traffic areas in your home because they don’t build up dust and are more resistant to everyday stains.  One of the greatest advantages of choosing a Sisal rug is that they don’t show wear marks even if they are used extensively for long periods of time.

Sisals are often used as a foundation in layering area rugs.

Go to the rug, flip a corner and check out the back of the rug, it should show the same clear pattern as the front. Another way to tell is to trust the store or online site you are purchasing from. There are several reasons why a hand knotted rug is typically more expensive than other hand made rugs.   Hand knotted area rug designs are more intricate and use the most labor intensive rug weaving process today. Typically, hand knotted area rugs have a more defined and distinctive design than a hand tufted or machine made area rug because of the way they are made. Let me help you understand. 1. First, an artist draws the rug's full-scale design on a special graph paper. 2. Each square on the paper represents a "knot" of the rug. 3. Once the design is drafted, the rug is placed on a frame, called a "loom". 4. Columns of thread are stretched vertically (referred to
