Jute Rugs

The benefits of a jute rug

Rugs made with jute, which is an extremely versatile, 100% natural fibre, and is used widely in textiles for the home, are rugs with a very soft finish with a matte, rather than shiny or lustrous look.

Despite being a plant fibre, jute rugs are relatively hard-wearing. Like cotton, jute rugs don’t contain any lanolin, and are manufactured using natural processes so are the perfect choice for people who suffer allergies or are sensitive to wool rugs.

100% pure jute rugs are vegan and eco-friendly

Jute rugs are made from the stem fibres of the plant of the same name.The plant is a sustainable resource because it’s renewable without huge environmental impacts. Jute rugs don't require chemicals in their manufacturing process, so you can rest assured your jute rug will keep your home healthier. 

Jute is a fine fibre that can be woven into beautiful rugs. Whether hand-woven or created using a loom, a jute rug can display very attractive, refined and intricate patterns. Herringbone jute rugs, two-toned designs or interesting textures are all possible with this material. Depending on the construction method, jute can have a smooth finish like cotton – which is perfect for use as kitchen rugs and runners – or a chunky, textural finish like wool – ideal for the living room or beside your bed.

Caring for your jute rug

Jute rugs are very easy to care for, making it a great choice for use around the home. Similar to wool, a simple vacuum with a brush nozzle is all you’ll need to keep your rug looking wonderfully fresh and magazine worthy. Brown jute rugs will also help to conceal dirt.

As with most rugs which are not designed to be used for doormats, the longevity of your jute rug can be extended if it’s placed in an area where you don’t wear shoes; however it’s still hardy enough to be used as a carpet runner in high traffic areas such as hallways.

Wherever you decide to lay it, you can help to keep your rug and floor in good condition, and make sure it stays in place on tiles and other smooth flooring, by using a carpet underlay. It doesn’t need to be as large as as the rug to work: a few centimetres overhang is fine.

How to clean jute rugs

In the case of stains or a build-up of grime and dirt, you can spot clean it with a mild detergent or special rug cleaner, as you would with other 100% natural rugs. Do not steam clean it though, because it’s susceptible to water damage. For this reason, jute is not recommended for use in the bathroom or for bath mats, so stick to cotton or linen for your bathroom textile accessories.

Jute rugs & runners for the kitchen

Natural jute rugs as kitchen tugs are also very popular. If you intend to use it as a floor covering in front of a workspace, be mindful that a particularly textured design may trap and harbour more dirt and crumbs, so may be a little more challenging to clean. Instead, opt for a smooth, plain weave rug or herringbone pattern rug, to add pattern and colour to the space, and save on time spent cleaning your rug. 

Jute rugs: adds texture to your rooms & works with all décors

Jute rugs have a natural, earthy finish, and are commonly woven in a chunky knot or with a bouclé design. This textural finish rug will give your home depth and warmth, and will work to make your living room or bedroom feel cosier and more relaxed. If you have a traditional or country style home, this rug will pull all of these elements together, grounding the look and feel of the space. If, on the other hand, you have a modern or contemporary style home, the sleek, glossy finishes will be broken up by the natural, textured character of the rug.
