Choosing a Natural Floorcovering

Each of our natural floorcoverings has its own unique charms - and each lends itself best to different rooms and uses. Wool, Seagrass, Coir and Sisal work brilliantly thoughtout the home.

All natural plant fibre floorcoverings should be used with caution in high-moisture areas like the kitchen and bathroom, and Jute is best confined to low-traffic areas where it will wear well. Bleached fibres can also revert back to their natural colour over time.

Coir

Due to the natural resilience of Coir, all the natural floor coverings in our Coir Collection are suitable for light domestic, heavy domestic and stair use but due to its sumptuous natural texture Coir is not suitable for use with Castor chairs or in areas of high moisture. All are backed with Natural Latex.

Jute

Due to the luxurious nature of Jute, 'Perak', our Jute/Cotton mix is the only Jute floor covering suitable for both light domestic and heavy domestic use with our pure Jute ranges being suitable for light domestic use alone. Some Jute floor coverings are backed with Natural Latex.

Seagrass

Due to the natural strength of Seagrass, all our Seagrass floor coverings are suitable for both light domestic, heavy domestic and for use with castor chairs but not for use on stairs or in areas of high moisture. All are backed with Natural Latex.

Sisal

Due to the natural absorbency and strength of Sisal, all our Sisal floor coverings are suitable for both light domestic and heavy domestic use, all except 'Rafiki' can be used on stairs and many can also be used with castor chairs but all are unsuitable for use in areas of high moisture. All are backed with Natural Latex.

Sisool

Due to the natural versatility of Wool but absorbency of Sisal, all our Sisool floor coverings are suitable for both light domestic and heavy domestic use, use on stairs and with castor chairs but all are unsuitable for use in areas of high moisture. All are backed with Jute.

Wool

Due to the natural versatility of Wool, floor coverings within our Wool Collection are suitable for the widest range of applications but please refer to each individual design for its specific suitabilities.
