A very popular choice as an alternative to carpet, natural materials such as sisal or seagrass offer great wear capabilities and give the natural appearance and tones of a material like wood or bamboo, whilst being softer to walk on and providing greater insulation for the colder months. Fashionable and aesthetically pleasing as well as being practical and durable, find out more about our natural flooring here.
What is Sisal
Sisal is a plant from the same family as Agave (commonly known for its sweet nectar which is often used as an alternative to sugar). Native to southern Mexico, the plant’s strong, stiff fibres are used in the production of rope, twine and other textiles, including carpets. Sisal carpets are extremely durable, they do not trap dust or build up static. In fact, the only maintenance required for a sisal carpet is vacuuming. Sisal fibres can also be blended with wool or synthetic materials to create a softer feeling carpet.
What is Seagrass
Seagrass is a marine plant that thrives in saltwater environments. A plant that makes its home underwater, seagrass has a greater structural integrity than some other plant based fibres and is more resistant to stains and spillages due to its waxy quality, making it ideal for the Dining Room or Study. Seagrass is a better option than many other stain resistant floor coverings as it is fairly inexpensive in comparison. It comes in a range of stunning natural shades. Seagrass is not suitable for dyeing due to its resistance to liquid.
Sisal and Seagrass can be woven to make beautiful patterns and can make a wonderful addition to your home or business. Whilst not as comfortable to sit on as carpet, natural flooring has been said to be longer lasting and better when it comes to areas that are subject to high levels of traffic.
