“Natural” Rugs: Seagrass, Sisal, Jute, Synthetic & Wool Rugs: The Low-Down
I have (or have had) almost all of these rugs somewhere in my home with the exception of sisal. And there’s definitely a time & place for each of them, depending upon the maintenance, kid, pet & softness factors. Here’s a quick overview of my thoughts & experiences with the rugs.
7) EXTRA INFO: Since it’s natural, its color changes over time. It starts out with more of a green tinge and eventually tans. If you are layering rugs, the area under the rug might stay green longer because the moisture is being protected under there so keep that in mind of you plan on moving rugs around seasonally. (Similar to sun discoloration on hardwoods) Eventually, after being exposed for long enough, the difference shouldn’t be noticeable. Weels also work on this rug which is perfect for the wheely desk chairs in my office & also for Christian’s scooter. Joni from Cote de Texas has a beautiful & information-packed post about seagrass which (if you haven’t already read) you should definitely check out here.
