Fondly referred to as the ‘warm heart of Africa’, Malawi is well known for its smiling, friendly people. With an astonishing freshwater lake dominating the country and beautiful highlands, Malawi is not short of breathtaking views. From the golden sands to the meromictic lake, Malawi is rich in distinctive colours, much like our collection of the same name. From the delicate creamy beige of Wicker and the gentle brown Hemp to the rich chocolatey tones of Rustic, Malawi adds depth and warmth in any shade.

Malawi has a medium gauge basket weave of woven sisal fibres running through the carpet. The agave plant, which produces sisal fibres, has been known to grow in Malawi which this collection is named after. A perfect choice for the eco-conscious, sisal is a sustainable choice without sacrificing on strength and indulgence.

Warm and welcoming, the Malawi collection reflects the heart of the people and the beauty of the country. The rustic neutral shades offer a laid-back feeling of comfort and familiarity. From the deepest waters to the most golden shores, Malawi is here to embrace you with open arms.


Malawi is suitable for installation in a bedroom, dining room, living room, hallway and on stairs.

The pile content of Malawi is 100% Sisal.

The total pile weight of this carpet is 2000g/m².

Malawi has a total height of 9mm.

The tog rating of our Malawi collection is 0.64

Our Stain Removal and Cleaning Set is formulated specifically for natural fibres and includes a cleaning solution for all-over cleaning and a spot cleaner for specific spills. Also included are a brush and cloth to apply the solutions. We would suggest a good quality suction vacuum cleaner – needs to have a high level of suction to work into the base of the products and remove any dust or dirt.  Avoid using devices with rotating beater bars / brushes as this can damage the surface of the pile.

As a rule of thumb the combined tog rating of the underlay and carpet should be no more than 2.5 Togs. Tog ratings are important as the UFH needs to be able to radiate the heat through the flooring covering. Consider an underlay with no more than 0.8 togs to allow the heat to transfer from the subfloor with ease. This allows you to focus on the carpet providing comfort and style to your home. 

Natural plant fibre products, such as Sisal and Coir, are unaffected by moths.

There is an option to add Intec stain protection onto your order. Intec is a water based formula which can be applied to your carpet or rug before dispatch. It forms an invisible shield around every fibre which resists the absorption of stains and dirt, helping to prolong the life of your Crucial Trading product. Intec is environmentally friendly and will not alter the colour or texture of your floorcovering.

We would recommend always using an underlay, for added comfort underfoot and longevity.                                                Vital Combination Underlay is made from 100% recycled wool and jute felt with a backing of recycled vehicle tyres. With a thickness of 11mm it is suitable for all areas of the home and features good sound and thermal insulation, perfect for domestic wool floorcoverings.

Vital Double Stick Underlay is suited to wool, sisool, sisal, jute, coir and seagrass products and offers superior, long-lasting performance with added recovery from indentations. Available in 6.5mm or 9mm thickness for higher traffic areas in both residential and commercial installations.

A huge part of the appeal of our natural floorcoverings is more than just their inspirational aesthetic. To appreciate their tactile quality, you really need to see them up close. You can order up to five free samples of our carpets and rug borders, so you can be sure your selection is both the perfect feel and colour.

Yes. All of our products are available as wall to wall broadloom carpet and to be made into a bespoke rug or runner.

Rugs and runners can be finished with single or double borders, with or without piping. The standard amount of border showing on the rug surface for a single border type is approximately 55mm. If your chosen design has a double border, for example a Cotton Chenille Inner and Linen Boucle Outer, the joint border width will be approximately 110mm. We can offer a 30mm and 80mm border options, please discuss this further with your retailer.
