Natural Rugs do so much more than accent your home, they help the environment. Natural Rugs are made from Earth-friendly materials that benefit, instead of detract from, the environment. They are considered Earth-friendly for a number of reasons.
Natural rug selections can be biodegradable, or they can trap in air contaminants to purify the air, or sometimes natural rugs are simply produced without the use of toxic chemicals or materials.
Types of Natural Rugs
There are numerous types of Natural Rugs, all of which are Earth-friendly for varying reasons. Some of the most popular Natural Rugs are made from jute, wool, bamboo, sisal, seagrass, and mountain grass.
Jute Natural Rugs
Jute is an ancient plant that has been used in Asia and the middle-east for quite some time. Jute is not only used as a resource for Natural Rugs, but can also be found in such products as sacks and bags, as well as prayer rugs. In addition, it is used as the backing to carpets. Jute is a biodegradable material that breaks down into the soil and creates additional vitamins and minerals. Jute is also a renewable resource, which means that it can be used endlessly without having to be replanted.
