The fibers are spun into a hardwearing yarn to produce heavy-duty, enduring rugs. Sisal is naturally a yellow-beige color but easily accepts dyes. Its clean neutral appearance, can harmonize with any interior decor. Sisal's natural, minimalist look is much loved by most interior designers.

Sisal fiber comes from the Agave plant, one of the most principal farming crops of the world's tropical areas. Agave (American aloe or Century plant) is native to the southernmost part of North America and to Central America, where its development started in Mexico, on the Yucatan Peninsula. But the world's the longest, finest, and whitest fiber, and most produced sisal comes from the plantations of East Africa.
