Preserving the Beauty of a Jute Rug

Jute rugs are delicate and beautiful pieces of art. These types of rugs compliment a variety of décor styles, and could possibly enhance the furniture you already have! These rugs are high – fashion and high quality. Most jute rugs are hand made. They are composed from a straw like fiber. Consequently, preserving a jute rug requires diligent care. Here are a few tips to ensure that the beauty of your jute rug is preserved.

Jute rugs must be vacuumed on a regular basis. When vacuuming, make sure that you get both sides of the jug.  It may be a good idea to keep your jute rug out of high traffic areas. If your jute rug does get a stain, you should use mild soap and water to work the stain out. Test your cleanser first on an inconspicuous portion of the rug to ensure that the cleanser is not too strong.  A soft bristle brush or a sponge should be used to get the stain out. Be sure to use very gentle motions against the jute rug.

As long as you keep your jute rug clean, these rugs will remain extremely strong and durable. Not to mention, their beauty will last for ages as well.

Jute rugs can be purchased in several shapes and styles. The jute rugs that are sold before they are dyed retain some of their natural tan color (which is the color of the Jute plant!). Jute rugs are also available in patterns like stripes and chevrons.

Jute rugs can often be found in smaller boutiques and online. Remember jute rugs are considered pieces of art, so they can also be hung up on a wall to add texture to the room!
