Sisal area rugs are a considerable alternative in the home and floor decorating. These all-natural fiber rugs are produced from the sisal cactus plant grown in Africa and Brazil, which produces annual growth of two to three foot long sisal fibers woven into different sized sisal rug materials by the numerous producers. Unlike jute, the sisal rug can be mixed with wool to combine the finest assets of each fiber in a supple yet hardwearing crossbreed sisal rug.

Sisal is a natural fiber extracted from the long, smooth leaves of sisal plants. After the leaves are compressed, the green pulp is scraped away resulting in long fibers, which are then dried and primed for weaving. The outcome is a rug that is tightly woven and smoother surface than other natural fiber area rugs. Because of their unique and elegant look, sisal area rugs are a great way to beautify your home or office.

Sisal is a stable, strong, and versatile material that can be woven into rib and boucles weaves, jacquard patterns, and flat weaves and many dyed or natural colors. Sisal rugs for the home are naturally anti-static, sound absorbing, and exceptionally hardwearing because of the intrinsic traits of this tough, durable fiber. It is also naturally insulating and hard to set on fire.

Sisal rugs use no foreign chemicals, therefore are biologically stable which can be a significant health consideration in the situation of an air tight and likely toxic interior office and home environment. In addition, your sisal rug breathes well and will control humidity levels within your household. Sisal rugs should not be set up as an outdoor carpet as the occurrence of weather and water will promptly corrupt the fiber and shorten its life.
