Jute rugs, as the name describe, made by jute materials. Jute is a long vegetable fiber that turns into strong threads. It is one of the cheapest fiber ever exist second to cotton in production and array of uses. The raw jute is what the jute fiber is commonly called. Its color is mostly off-white or brown. It is also known to others as the golden fiber because of its high value and color.
As an organic fiber, jute gives any room a natural motive. Jute material offers twice the hardness of cotton, at the same time, its fibers feel softer compared to those of other rugs of its kind. Jute rugs came from jute plant that grows rapidly, so its material is environment-friendly. The surface, which is non-flammable, does not produce static electricity and gets well in medium foot traffic spaces around the home. Manufacturers able to dye the biodegradable fibers with a variety of colors, although most jute rugs come in natural beige hue color. Materials pass through the surface and stains will mostly blend within the material as time goes by.
As an abundant material, it is considerably cheaper than most other floor rugs. Jute does have a few consequences. Jute can break down easily with heavy uses, so manufacturers recommend using the material in low traffic areas. Jute is absorbent, meaning to say, doesn’t go well to water. If it gets wet, it will shrink and might degrade, so dry cleaning is the most efficient way just like other plant-based rugs. It is not advisable to use jute rugs in humid areas or outside the area because water damages the rugs and it also creates mildew.
Jute is considerably cheaper in price than sisal fibers, which is higher in quality and lasts longer than the former. These two types of rug require minimum maintenance since they never absorb dirt, and a little a quick shake or gentle sweep is all they needed.
