Seagrass: An Especially Popular Option in Natural Fiber Rugs

Natural fiber rugs are increasing in popularity every day. Open nearly any decorator magazine and you’ll see articles, photo spreads and advertisements featuring natural fiber rugs.

An especially popular option in natural fiber rugs is seagrass. Seagrass comes from a flowering plant that grows underwater in the sea. It’s usually found in sandy or silty soil, although it sometimes actually grows right on top of rocks. Since it grows in large groups, it tends to resemble a fields of wheat or tall grass, which is how it came be called “seagrass.”

As a flowering plant, seagrass is unique in that it both grows and pollinates under water, although there is one species in the Pacific that pollinates right at the water’s surface.

And seagrass is readily abundant. There are over 2.5 million acres growing off the coast of Florida alone.

By the way, seagrass is not seaweed. The two aren’t even related. Seaweed is an algae. Seagrass is a plant that has flowers, seeds and fruit and creates oxygen, all traits seaweed lacks.

And did you know seagrass has been woven into rugs since antiquity? It’s even used to stuff pillows and mattresses by some companies.

A rug made from seagrass can be woven into a number of different patterns, including the popular basketweave and half panama patterns. It makes for an extremely durable rug and it has a quality many other natural rugs lack– it repels water.

A seagrass natural area is a great addition to any room in the house.
