Natural Beauty Jute Rugs For Your House
Jute rugs offer inherent natural beauty to any space in which they’re used since they’re made of dried plant fibers, often left in their original tan shade. Jute is a plant fiber used to make rope and sturdy fabric. Rugs made with this material are sturdy, hard-wearing and can be highly decorative as well. Jute rugs are fashioned from plant fibers that are woody in texture and thus result in sturdy and coarse rugs. Jute is often combined with synthetic fibers to produce softer carpeting. Due to the sturdy nature of the natural fibers, jute rugs are hard wearing and long lasting. They do well in areas with heavy-foot traffic and are especially used for welcome mats and throw rugs in porches and sun rooms. Jute rugs come in many varieties and sizes, though not as many as wall-to-wall carpeting. Many are undyed natural tan color, but dyed jute rugs are available in many colors and designs. Patterns such as stripes and chevrons are popular.
A simple vacuuming with a brush attachment removes dust that may build up in the woven texture of the rugs; vacuum from several directions to remove the most debris and prolong the rug’s usefulness and beauty. If the rug has a binding, avoid vacuuming the stitched area to prolong its life. Treating a spill on the rug involves blotting, rather than rubbing the spot out.
