Natural-fiber flooring is a great, easy-care choice for high-traffic spaces, folks who prefer organic materials or any room where cushy flooring isn’t necessary. No, natural fibers aren’t plush, but they’re extremely durable and add a natural look to any space. The main fibers used in flooring are sisal, seagrass, jute and mountain grass, and all come in a variety of textures and hues. Here’s a look at their individual charms:
- Sisal is created from the fleshy leaf fiber of the Agave sisalana plant. The fibers are spun into a heavy-duty yarn to create durable, long-lasting carpeting and rugs. Sisal is naturally a yellow-beige color but readily accepts dyes and paints. A sisal rug can be tinted to resemble one of the more expensive natural choices such as mountain grass or dyed to a vibrant hue.
