WOOL, SISAL & SEAGRASS

The revival of natural floor coverings made from renewable fibers and other natural resources has opened up fresh sources and design styles. Our collections of natural floor coverings offer another dimension to floor choices with new weaving techniques such as mixed yarns in herringbone weave or boucle fine weave. Natural coverings include sisal and seagrass and wool which is natural and sustainable, renewable and biodegrable. Wool is also naturally resilient and hypo allergenic. Natural materials also provide an alternative design choice for people allergic to synthetic fibers.
