Jute rugs have been around for a long time. But, they’re experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Not only do they look great, but they offer several benefits.
If you’re on the hunt for sustainable materials, jute is one of the best on the market. Jute is a natural material that’s easy to grow. Plus, it benefits the planet.
The plant absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen at a higher rate than trees. Also, the root system improves soil quality. This can benefit future crops in the area.
In terms of sustainability, jute rugs are top-notch. The plant reaches maturity in only 4 to 6 months. In most cases, there’s no need to use chemical fertilizers or pesticides either.
As a result, the finished rug is much safer. There’s no need to worry about the slow release of VOCs.
Finally, the material is biodegradable. Synthetic rugs can take hundreds of years to degrade in a landfill. Jute rugs don’t take as long and can benefit the earth as they degrade.
Just because jute rugs have natural materials doesn’t mean that they don’t look good. The natural jute fibers can take in dye like any other organic fiber. It does well with natural dyes, which make things safer in the long run.
Though, chemical dyes work, too. Some manufacturers will also weave rugs with other fibers to produce a unique look.
Many people prefer raw jute that’s not dyed. The natural hue of the jute offers a neutral base. It works well in most spaces and can complement many different types of decor.
There are also a few different types of jute fibers available. White jute, Tossa jute, and Messa jute can be combined to create unique patterns and color blends.
The coolest thing about jute rugs is that they have many different types of weaves. The weave pattern creates a distinct texture. Instead of high piles, the tight braids provide a durable walking surface that feels great on the feet.
Jute rugs aren’t as plush as shag rugs. But, they’re comfortable nonetheless. Manufacturers use various weaves to produce specific results.
For example, standard flatw eaves are the most durable. They perform best in high-traffic areas of the home. Hand-knotted weaves are a bit softer and can be used in bedrooms or living rooms.
