A Jute Rug is THE Sustainable & Ethical Alternative to Wool Rugs

A Jute Rug is THE Sustainable & Ethical Alternative to Wool Rugs

A jute rug is the perfect all-rounder for the home and this rug wins all the votes for sustainability, versatility, minimalism, and eco-friendliness.

What is Jute? Jute is a vegetable fibre, grown mostly in tropical countries like India and Bangladesh.

It's easy to produce, sturdy, and biodegradable so it's the perfect material to use in a jute rug for indoor styling and comfort in the home.

Mums and dads with small children will be happy to know that a jute rug is the safest rug to buy for the home if you want to keep your children away from chemicals and toxic fumes.  Growing jute is eco-friendly - there's minimal need for poisonous chemicals such as pesticides and fertilisers to keep the bugs away as it's naturally resistant. It's a win-win - for us, and for the environment.

Interesting fact: 90% of the world's jute comes from Bangladesh.

Jute is also made into hessian, or burlap fabric, which is then used to make bags, sacks, footwear such as espadrilles, and carpets. It's a fabulous alternative to cotton and plastic too.

Recycled Mats has jute rugs to suit all tastes.

Jute rugs can be used indoors and out with little fuss. These indoor outdoor rugs are a clever choice for families with children, as they can be shaken out when the kids bring the dirt in. These well-built floor rugs are designed to last, and they are well suited to our sunny Australian climate.
