Wool is a complex natural fibre long favoured for its beauty and versatility. Not only is a wool carpet comfy underfoot, it has thermal insulation properties meaning it’s warm in winter yet cool in summer. 

A natural wool carpet in your home can bring with it many benefits, including stain resistance, fire resistance, durability, sustainability as well as insulation.

The ideal flooring solution for a home, wool carpets deliver wellbeing and health benefits and have strong environmental as well as practical credentials too.

We’ve covered all of the reasons you should choose a natural wool carpet for your home:

Wool is hypoallergenic

Wool is hypoallergenic. Dust mite allergens are one of the triggers for asthma attacks, but wool is hygroscopic meaning it has microscopic pores that respond effectively to changes in humidity (it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere and then releases it again when it’s drier). This means it doesn’t encourage the growth and breeding of dust mites as well as mould and fungus.

Wool has air purifying properties

The health properties don’t end there. Wool has been found to have the ability to absorb a range of potentially harmful chemicals and pollutants including formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from the air. Not only does it neutralise these contaminants more quickly and completely than synthetic carpet fibres, it does not re-emit them, even when heated. It is estimated that wool used in interiors may help purify the air for 30 years.

As a natural fibre, wool generates little or no static electricity. Static typically attracts dirt and dust meaning the surface of a carpet made from 100% wool should stay cleaner for longer.

Wool carpets have ideal acoustic properties

The impact of noise on our wellbeing is becoming better recognised. Most of us want our homes to be sanctuaries, places of quiet retreat from a noisy world. As more of us are now working from home, the ambient levels of noise in a house is starting to have an effect on our ability to concentrate, as well as contributing to stress levels and reducing overall productivity.

Researchers have found that wool carpets provide excellent acoustic properties — it’s why you find them in nearly all cinemas, cars and planes. Whereas sound is reflected from hard surfaces, the porosity of the surface of wool carpets means that sound waves penetrate into the pile rather than being reflected back, creating a more peaceful environment.

Wool is eco-friendly

Wool is a natural fibre grown on sheep that freely roam in fields and hills across the countryside eating little more than grass. Sheep re-grow their fleece every year, making wool eco-friendly and one of the most sustainable fibres available.

The raw materials for synthetic fibres, in contrast, come from petroleum-based chemicals. It’s also true that there is significantly less energy used during wool processing for 100% wool carpets, when compared with manufacturing man-made fibres. This lower energy for manufacturing could lower the embodied carbon of the material, which will reduce the carbon impact on the earth — making it the choice for those wishing to live a green lifestyle.

Wool has excellent insulation properties

As anyone who has it installed in their lofts knows, wool has excellent insulation properties. Choosing a natural flooring made of wool will go some way to reducing heat transfer through floors meaning it can help to lower heating bills and lighten the carbon footprint of a house.

Wool is fire resistant

Wool’s fire resistance stems from its exceptional properties, such as a high ignition temperature that requires more heat for combustion. When exposed to flames, wool fibres char and create a protective layer, preventing the fire from spreading.

Unlike synthetic alternatives, wool doesn’t melt or drip, and it has a remarkable ability to self-extinguish once the ignition source is removed. This not only enhances your home’s safety but also provides a chic and cosy flooring solution that effortlessly combines elegance with peace of mind.

Wool is stain resistant

Wool’s natural stain resistance is a game-changer for busy households, as its fibres possess a unique outer layer that repels liquids and prevents spills from immediately penetrating the fabric. This means you can say goodbye to the stress of accidental spills and hello to worry-free gatherings with friends and family.

The inherent resilience of wool fibres allows for easy clean up, giving you more time to enjoy life’s moments and less time fretting over potential mishaps.

Wool is extremely durable

Wool’s inherent durability is a true asset in high-traffic areas, as its resilient fibres can withstand the test of time, maintaining their beauty and integrity even in the busiest spaces of your home.

The natural elasticity of wool allows it to bounce back from compression, ensuring a plush and inviting feel underfoot for years. Say goodbye to the worries of wear and tear, as wool carpets effortlessly combine style and strength, making them the perfect foundation for a home that exudes both elegance and resilience.

As we’ve unravelled the incredible benefits of wool, from its natural stain resistance to its fire-resistant properties and enduring durability, it’s clear that wool is more than just a flooring choice—it’s a lifestyle upgrade.

Chunky wool carpets for bedrooms help create your perfect bedtime interior

Of all the rooms in a house, the bedroom should be a sanctuary of peace and calm. Somewhere comfortable, cossetting and relaxing; a place to revive and refresh after a frantic day.

Start with the floor

In order to conjure this sort of cocooning space, the bedroom interior needs some careful consideration. For a deeply restful and comfortable room, go for a looser and more relaxed look which embraces layers of textures in varying natural materials which will ensure the finished result is timeless in its design. While many believe that bedroom interiors begin and end with a well-chosen mattress dressed in good quality bedlinen, a truly cosy interior scheme should always start from the ground up.

That means thinking carefully about the floor covering. As the bedroom is typically a space we use while barefoot, it’s essential to have a soft floor surface.

Wool rugs for warmth

Wall-to-wall wool carpet is the perfect way to start a scheme for a cosy bedroom. Pure wool carpets provide a wonderful soft texture underfoot to wake up to in the morning as well as adding warmth, insulation and acoustic protection – all of which will contribute to improved levels of sleep and relaxation.

When the existing floor is a characterful parquet or attractively varnished oak boards, introduce a generously sized wool rug to create a similar cocooning and cosy effect. It’s the perfect solution which balances retaining the beauty of exposed timber with a softer and warmer feel of wool.

Using textures and layers

The colour, design and weave of the floor covering will have a big impact on the overall scheme. Choose a thick loop or or super-thick varied loop for a rustic but luxurious finish. And continue to add layers to introduce further layers of softness, that can include adding a sheepskin rug either at the end of a bed or just where you step out of bed in the morning for extra texture and comfort.

Adding wool blankets for extra warmth

Chunky wool blankets either in a cable knit or woven draped over the bed inject warmth and a sense of farmhouse charm to a bedroom but they also serve another purpose: studies have shown that the weight of a blanket can have a calming effect and aid deeper levels of relaxation and sleep.

Mixing and matching patterns and textures

Tonally similar or plain fabrics are often considered as soothing choices by experts in interior styling, but contrasting patterns and textures create a more interesting and less formal result.

Chunky cable knit bed throws pair well with rich velvet headboards, for example. While crisp satin-smooth Egyptian cotton bedlinen looks stunning paired with a woven wool blanket draped over the end of the bed — and these are perfect for curling up with a good book on a weekend afternoon. Dial up the comfort levels still further by decorating the bed with a deep layer of feather-filled cushions.

Healthy benefits of natural wool carpet

It’s so important to have these soft areas to escape from the noise of the outside world. These are just a small list of benefits a comfy wool filled room can do for you:

– Lower your blood pressure
– Decrease your heart rate
– Steady your breathing
– Reduce muscle tension
– Increase focus and cognition

To maintain a calming bedroom interior, keep clutter at bay, ensure there is a source of good books to hand (stacked in piles is fine) and choose a few discreet lamps as opposed to one dominating main overhead light.

Read this guide for our top carpet maintenance tips for how you can care for a new carpet to help keep it looking as good as new! This guide will cover the following:

How Often Should I Clean My New Carpet?

Congratulations on your new carpet! With its rich texture and stylish design, you’ll be proud to show it off in any room. But how often should we clean our carpets? And what’s the best way of caring for them so they last as long as possible?

Here are some carpet maintenance tips to help you keep your new carpet looking its best:

Hoover regularly: Depending on how much foot traffic your carpet gets, you should hoover it at least once a week. If you have pets or small children, you may need to hoover more often.

Use a carpet cleaner: Once every few months, it’s a good idea to use a carpet cleaner, especially if you have pets or allergies. Look for a carpet cleaner that’s specifically designed for your carpet’s material.

Take care of spills quickly: If you spill something on your carpet, don’t wait to clean it up. The sooner you treat the stain, the better chance you have of getting it out.

By following these simple carpet maintenance tips, you can keep your new carpet looking like new.

How To Properly Hoover A New Carpet

When hoovering a new carpet, it is important to be gentle in order to avoid damaging the fibres. Use a low setting on your hoover and make sure the brush attachment is set to “soft.” Be especially careful around the edges of the room where the carpet meets the baseboards. Take your time and don’t rush in order to avoid leaving any missed areas.

In general, it is best to hoover your new carpet on a weekly basis. However, you may need to hoover more often if you have pets or young children in the home. Be sure to remove any spots or stains as soon as possible in order to avoid permanent damage. With proper care, your new carpet will stay looking great for years to come. 

How To Brush A Carpet

If your carpet is looking a little worse for wear, brushing it may be the answer. Brushing revitalises the pile and helps to remove dirt and stains. It’s relatively easy to do, but there are a few things to keep in mind to get the best results.

First, you’ll need to choose the right brush. A stiff-bristled brush is best for most carpets, but you may want a softer brush for delicate or plush carpets. Second, hoover the area you’ll be brushing before you start to help loosen any embedded dirt.

Once you’ve chosen your brush and hoovered the area, start in one corner and brush in small, circular motions. Work your way across the carpet until you’ve covered the entire surface. Finally, hoover the area again to pick up any loose dirt and debris.

With just a little effort, brushing your carpet can make a big difference in its appearance.

How To Care For Wool Carpet

Wool carpets are versatile as well as being stylish and sophisticated. Wool’s natural fibres make wool carpets fairly easy to clean and maintain, making them perfect for a household of busy people.

Like most carpets, in order to prolong the life of a wool fibres, it is important that you take good care of it. This includes regular hoovering, prompt action when spillages occur, and consideration of indents usually caused by furniture. 

Here are some tips for easy and basic wool carpet maintenance and cleaning:

Hoovering: Use a hoover with a carpet cleaner for wool carpets, which are specifically designed for this material. This will help protect the fibres from any unnecessary damage. Lift the hoover regularly to check that the dirt chamber is not full. Hoover a wool carpet at least once a week. As a general rule it is advised to use an upright, brush assisted vacuum for cut pile and suction only vacuum cleaner on loop pile carpet and rugs.

Heavy Soiling: In cases where there may be a build up of mud or soil on the carpet, first allow the mud to dry. Once it’s been drying for a while, use a brush in order to brush away any soil and then hoover up all that dirt with a suction cleaner.

Spillages: Wool has a natural resistance to spills, due to its texture, which means spillages stay on top of the carpet rather than sink down into the fibres. If the spill is dry, you can try using a brush to lift it off the carpet. If the spill is wet, blot it with a clean, dry cloth. 

Once you’ve hoovered or blotted up as much of the spillage as possible, you can use a mild detergent to spot clean the affected area. We recommend reacting immediately to spills so they don’t become permanent stains. This can be very important for a household that can be prone to pet accidents!

How To Care For Natural Plant Fibre Carpet

Natural plant fibre carpets are a perfect choice for a home carpet, this list includes coir, jute, seagrass and sisal. These carpets can last for a long time, if well maintained and looked after properly during the course of their life.

Natural plant fibre floor coverings are extremely absorbent and should only be used indoors and away from areas of excessive moisture, for example kitchens and bathrooms. As they are absorbent, we recommend that under no circumstances should they be wet shampooed or wet cleaned.

Because of the latex backing of our natural plant fibre carpets, which prevents dust and dirt build-up beneath the floor covering, these carpets offer fairly easy and basic maintenance and cleaning:

Hoovering: We recommend a suction cleaner without beater bars. This is because beater bars can potentially cause some damage to the surface of the carpet. We recommend that all natural floor coverings are to be hoovered once a week.

Heavy Soiling: In cases where there may be a heavy build up of mud on the carpet, allow the mud to dry. Once the mud is dry, use a stiff brush along the weave structure, brush the soil and then hoover with the suction cleaner. For areas where heavy soiling and mud build up may occur, for example by an entrance or exit, Jute carpets are not recommended.

Spillages: Reacting as soon as possible to stains, is the best way to avoid permanent stainage. In the case of severe spillages the Stain Removal & Cleaning Set, available from Crucial Trading, is highly recommended. The set comes complete with cleaning solutions, applicators and full instructions. We recommend purchasing the set at the same time as the floor covering so that you can react quickly and avoid permanent stains.

The Best Cleaning Methods For Each Carpet Type

Most natural carpets benefit from regular vacuuming. However, for natural fibre flooring, this should be done without a rotating roller brush, or beater bar, attached to the vacuum. Take a look at the best regular cleaning methods for each carpet type below.

Carpet TypeCleaning MethodCleaning methods to avoid
WoolRegular vacuumingBleach or alkaline products
SisalWater-based products do not scrubWater-based products. Do not scrub
SeagrassRegular vacuuming with a strong brush suctionSteam cleaning or any other water-based cleaning
CoirBrush or vacuum weeklyHarsh chemicals, detergent and saturating with water
JuteVacuum with strong-suction vacuumWater-based cleaning methods

What To Do After A New Carpet Is Installed

You can walk on new carpet straight away if necessary but you should try to avoid heavy foot traffic in the area for at least 48 hours to avoid indentations. In addition, you may also want to ventilate the room for a few days following installation as some materials associated with carpet removal and installation can impact indoor air quality.

To maintain the appearance of your new carpet, you should brush or vacuum regularly, depending on the carpet type, and clean up any spillages immediately.

How To Remove Fluff From A New Carpet

New carpet shedding is completely normal, and not necessarily a fault of the manufacturer. So, you may find some carpet fluff and lose fibres within the first few weeks of installation. This can be easily resolved with regular vacuuming to lift the fluff and can minimise the amount of carpet fluff you’ll see on your carpet. Using a brush attachment on your vacuum can help to lift the fluff but you should only do this if it is suitable for your carpet type.

A natural fibre carpet is an investment that you won’t regret. But if you want your new high-quality natural carpet to last, it is important to take good care of it. Hoovering once a week and cleaning spillages as soon as they happen will make sure your carpet stays perfect for years to come.

Choosing the right carpet texture can make all the difference in creating a luxurious feel in your home. There are many different factors to consider when choosing a carpet, but the texture is one of the most important. In this guide we will explain the different textures of natural materials, to help you choose the right carpet for your home. 

Loop Pile

A loop pile carpet is made via the fibres being looped into the backing. Loop pile carpets are known for their strength and durability, so they’re the style to look for if you have heavy footfall throughout your home. Loop pile carpets can come in many different pile heights, which generally dictate how soft it feels underfoot. The higher the loops, the more luxurious the feel. Loop pile carpets can have a range of textures from a soft, smooth feel to something a little firmer.


Berber carpet gets its name from the indigenous tribes of North Africa. Traditionally, these berber carpets were hand-woven using a special style of knot. Modern Berber carpet draws on this ancient technique with a distinguishable loop pile construction, and is more recently known for the flecked nature of the wool, resulting in one shade contrasted against a slightly lighter or darker background colour.

Soft fibre carpets in the Berber style can be the perfect balance of luxury underfoot, whilst having important traits like stain resistance.

Cut Pile

Cut pile is simply an industry term that describes a certain style of construction; one where the pile is sheared at the top for added softness. You can think of it as a finishing technique. This is because there are lots of types of cut pile carpet, from velvety soft, dense varieties to the more hardwearing twist styles. The one thing they all have in common is that the fibres are cut rather than looped into the backing. 

Cut pile is definitely the way to go if you’re looking for a clean and attractive finish, and does especially well in the living room and bedrooms.


Wool carpet has the qualities of an all-around flooring solution, with a perfect mix of softness and durability. For ultimate softness, look no further than new wool, which is crafted from a sheep’s first shear. New Zealand wool carpet and British Wool have a luxurious quality underfoot due to their super soft texture, which is perfect for bedrooms and living rooms.


Jute carpets are created from the Corchorus plant, cultivated in India and Bangladesh and is the same fibre used to create burlap and hessian cloth.

Once woven into a carpet, jute offers the cosy textural depth of a plant-based flooring solution with a much smoother texture. Ideal for introducing an organic accent into your lounge, living room and bedroom, this design offers silky softness underfoot.


Native to South America, sisal carpet is created from the Agave plant. This material has an irresistible texture. Tighter woven sisal designs will feel slightly harder than the loosely woven designs, which typically provide more comfort. Sisal provides more luxury in its appearance rather than softness typically associated with wool.


Coir carpets are crafted from the fibrous husks of a coconut, which is every bit as exotic and luxurious as it sounds. Coir is not only incredibly absorbent, but it’s also breathable, helping you feel more comfortable every night. Look no further than our collection of Luxury Coir carpets including designs like Herringbone and Boucle, these designs give a textural feel underfoot which is comfortable as well as being aesthetically pleasing.


Traditionally used to create handcrafted products from baskets to furniture, Seagrass is a versatile fibre, known for its smooth finish and incredible durability. Perfect for rugs, seagrass is non-absorbent, making it ideal for spaces where spillages are likely. Environmentally friendly and sustainable, seagrass weaves light into everyday life and offers an authentically natural aesthetic that holds its appeal. This luxury carpet material can be woven into a plethora of different designs, each as luxurious as the last.


Sisool is a relatively new innovation created using a blend of wool and sisal, and features the benefits of both materials. Combining the aesthetics of sisal and the durability and comfort of wool, this carpet texture provides soft pockets of warmth mixed with resilient sisal fibres for a strong finish featuring superb insulation properties.

There are many different types of carpet textures available on the market today. When choosing a new carpet for your home, it is important to consider the type of texture that will best suit your needs. The most luxurious carpets offer a variety of textures that suit any decor. From sleek and modern designs to rich and elegant patterns, there is a luxury carpet texture to suit every taste. If you are looking for the most luxurious and comfortable carpet for your home, look no further than our collections of carpets. With a wide selection of textures and styles to choose from, we have the perfect carpet for you, whatever your needs.

When it comes to decorating your home, you’re probably looking for ways to make it stand out. After all, who wants their home to look like everyone else’s? If you’re ready to get creative with your decor, why not try using earthy tones?

From the warm tones of terracotta to the cool shades of stone, there are a variety of earthy tones that can be used to create a unique and stylish space. Not sure how to get started? We’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to use earthy tones in your flooring, furniture, and even in modern interior design.

What Are Earth Tones?

Technically speaking, earth-toned colours are any that are found naturally in the world around us. This typically includes colours like brown, green, grey, orange, red, and yellow. These colours are often associated with nature, which is why they’re so popular in earthy home interiors or “green” design schemes.

How to Use Earthy Tones in Flooring

If you’re looking to add a touch of earth-tone interior design to your home, one great way to do it is with your flooring. Rich wood floors are always a classic choice, but you can also go for more modern options like bamboo or cork. For a truly unique look, try using tiles or stone in shades of brown, green, or orange. Just make sure to balance out the earth tones with white or neutral-coloured walls so the overall effect isn’t too overwhelming.

Earthy interiors can also be brought to life with carpet, laying the foundation for earthy home decor with natural materials. Choose sustainable fibres like coir, sisal or seagrass which have naturally golden and soft green shades that welcome nature into your home with ease. Wool carpet is another excellent choice to create a calm and comforting feel underfoot. The beauty of wool carpet is that it’s available in a variety of colours so you can choose your favourite earthy tone. 

How to Use Earthy Tones with Furniture

Another way to incorporate earth tones into your home is with your furniture. If you have wooden furniture in the dining room, try staining it in a shade of brown or red. Or if you prefer upholstered pieces, look for fabrics in hues of green or orange. You can even find artwork or decorations that feature earthy colour palettes like these. Why not introduce earthy tones into your bedroom design with wooden furniture, a patterned rug to add depth and texture or through soft furnishings?

Just be careful not to go overboard—a little bit of earth tone goes a long way!

How to Use Earthy Tones in Modern Interior Design

Contrary to popular belief, earthy modern interior design is a match made in heaven. The key is to pair them with clean lines and sharp angles for a look that is both stylish and sophisticated. For instance, for living room earth tones, try using burnt orange accents against a background of white walls and black furniture so the colours really pop in natural light. 

Or mix and match different shades of chocolate brown and green for an organic feel. Regardless of how you use them, earth tones can embrace natural elements and add just the right amount of warmth and personality to any space. 

As you can see, there are many ways to use earthy tones in your decor. Whether you’re looking for a rustic feel or something more modern, these colours can help you achieve the look you’re going for. Just remember to use them sparingly so they don’t overwhelm the space. With a little bit of creativity, you can easily incorporate earth tones into your home in a way that looks both beautiful and stylish!

A rug is not only a practical necessity but also a stylish addition to any room. The right rug can tie a whole room together, adding colour, pattern, and texture. But with so many choices on the market, how do you choose a statement rug that is perfect for your space? Here are a few tips to help you narrow down your search. We will cover:

How to Choose a Rug

There are four things to keep in mind when shopping for a rug: size, shape, style and material. The size of the rug should be proportional to the size of the room. So, if the room is small, you might want to choose small rugs that won’t overwhelm the space. The shape of the rug should complement the shape of the furniture; for example, a square coffee table looks best with a square or rectangular rug.

The style of the rug should match the style of the room. If the space is formal, go for a more traditional rug, but if it has a more modern feel, opt for something more contemporary. Finally, consider the material of your rug. If you want statement rugs in high-traffic areas of the home, you may want something that is easy to clean, so a wool rug would be a good choice for these areas.

How to Layer Rugs

Layering rugs is a great way to add texture to your floor space. It’s also easy to change up your décor without starting from scratch by simply buying a rug. To layer rugs successfully, start by putting an area rug in neutral colours down first and then layer with a smaller rug on top of it in a bolder print or colour. The key is to make sure that both the base rug and layered rugs share a common design element, such as material, colour or pattern. If you’re unsure where to start, you can always consult an interior designer or rug designer for advice.

How to Place a Rug in a Living Room

The living room is one of the most popular places to put a rug. But where exactly should you place it? The answer depends on the layout of your furniture. If you have two focal points (e.g. a fireplace and a TV), anchor each grouping of furniture with its own area rug. If you have one focal point (e.g, a fireplace), orient the furniture around it and place the rug in front of the fireplace. And finally, if you don’t have a focal point, define a seating area with an area rug and arrange the furniture around it. 

Can You Put a Rug On Carpet?

Yes! In fact, layering an area rug over carpet can enhance the comfort and insulation in a bedroom or other living space. If you are layering a rug on top of carpet, just make sure that both are securely attached to avoid any bunching or slipping. Also, take care when laying your rug over the carpet as you could risk tripping over the edge of the rug when you walk across it.

When shopping for a rug remember to keep size in mind as well as shape and style in order to choose one that is perfect for your needs! Layering rugs can create depth and add texture to any room while still being functional. When placing a rug, taking the right measurements are key and you can get creative with placement, patterns and layering to give the room a whole new look.

With a wealth of different natural flooring options available nowadays, it can be difficult to know which one is right for your home. Learning a little bit about each type of natural fibre carpet and the key benefits they bring, makes it much easier to decide. To help you, we have put together this quick guide with some insight into the various types of natural flooring. We will cover the following:

What is Wool Carpet?

Timeless and versatile, wool carpet has been used inside homes for thousands of years. The fibres are created from the fleecy coat of sheep or goat, which must be sheared annually for health reasons. This makes it a sustainable and renewable resource that has long evolved to withstand the elements, bringing natural insulation and dirt-repelling properties. 

Wool carpet is perfect if you want to add warmth and comfort to your space, with familiar softness underfoot. It has a luxurious look to last the ages, with a hard-wearing nature perfect for multiple areas of the home, from the landing to the living room. 

What is Sisal Carpet?

Sisal carpet is crafted from a tropical agave plant of the same name, which is native to South America. Once extracted, the plant-based fibres are twisted together for a strong and durable finish, with a wonderfully earthy texture. The result is a natural carpet weave that looks and feels irresistibly organic. Sisal carpet can be dyed if required but is most often seen in an assortment of natural golden beige tones, with a variety of different weave patterns. 

Sisal carpet is one of the strongest natural fibre carpets available, which means it is ideal for high-traffic areas of your home such as the hallway, landing and stairs. The rustic texture is suitable for a range of different design schemes, with woven patterns to suit every style of space. 

What is Sisool Carpet?

As the name suggests, sisool carpet is a marriage of two natural fibres, namely wool and sisal. It blends the benefits of both for a strong yet soft finish, depending on the ratio. Sisool carpets bring added warmth without compromising on durability, with sisal fibres to stand up to heavy traffic throughout your home. 

What is Seagrass Carpet?

Cultivated in shallow coastal waters, Seagrass is used to create a stylish natural flooring solution with a unique range of benefits. Easy to grow and often produced in small batches, it is a sustainable natural fibre carpet, ideal for the eco-conscious. 

Like sisal, it brings an earthy, organic texture, often woven into chunky patterns that add a tactile dimension to your space. Crafted from a water plant, this carpet has natural water-resistant properties, making it great for spaces where spills are likely to occur such as the dining room or utility. Just make sure you wipe any accidents up quickly to prevent stains from setting in.

What is Jute Carpet?

Jute carpet is made from the Corchorus plant, which is native to India and Bangladesh and is the same raw material responsible for hessian and burlap. It has a non-toxic and efficient growth cycle, easily produced without the need for chemical intervention. Similar to seagrass and sisal, it has a natural carpet weave offering an organic look and feel. However, jute fibres are considerably softer than sisal or seagrass because they grow in the wet, monsoon climates of Asia. 

If you are searching for a natural fibre carpet for the snug, or bedroom, jute is an excellent choice. Soft, delicate fibres craft a cosy and inviting atmosphere with a neutral colour palette that works with most design schemes.

What is Coir Carpet? 

Coir carpet is crafted from the fibrous husks of coconuts. Just like a coconut, it has an incredibly tough exterior with an exotic look and feel, most often seen in a rich, golden beige. Traditionally used in the manufacture of ropes, brushes and doormats, coir has a slightly rougher texture than other natural fibre carpets but is incredibly tough when it comes to everyday wear and tear. 

With a rustic look and feel, coir carpet brings warming colour and texture to country and traditional spaces. It works well in high-traffic areas where shoes are likely to be worn, such as the hallway, porch, and boot room. It is also naturally sound absorbing, making it a great choice for large, echoey spaces. 

Which Natural Fibre Carpet is Right for You?

Hopefully, learning a little bit about each type of natural fibre carpet has given some insight into which one might be right for your space. 

For premium warmth and insulation, with comforting cosiness underfoot, look no further than wool, a classic natural flooring solution. For strength and versatility, sisal is a solid choice, with a variety of weave patterns to choose from. Meanwhile, seagrass offers a little extra protection from stains, while jute is a softer natural fibre more suited to spaces such as the bedroom. Finally, coir is one of the most resilient natural flooring options available, ideal for even the most hectic areas of the home.
