Seagrass Rugs - A rug that will last a lifetime
Seagrass Area Rug: The basics
One of the most interesting and beautiful of all natural fiber rugs, the seagrass rug will quite literally last you a life time. Sea grass is naturally hard wearing thanks to its stiff, non-porous structure. It will not absorb moisture like other tropical rugs can, and is therefore perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
As its name suggests, a sea-grass area rug is made from a grassy fiber which thrives in sea water. The grass is grown and harvested in China and is green in color although this, like its strong scent, will fade over time.
Seagrass rugs have a lovely smooth surface which can look amazing in the right room. Be aware, however, that this can make them quite slippery to walk on, and so we do not recommended them for use in hallways, near stairs, in kitchens or any other area where people might move around quickly. The perfect place for a sea grass rug is beneath a coffee table or under another eye-catching piece of furniture. The lovely color and wonderful sheen that the rugs naturally have really helps to ‘set-off’ an item and will only complement its beauty rather than detract from it.
