Grass Rugs

Grass rugs are made from tightly twisted and woven grasses such as sea or mountain grass. They are increasingly popular with decorators because of their smooth, soft finish and their dramatic textures. Grass rugs have a warm, earthy natural color that makes them extremely versatile. They are inexpensive, durable and easy to maintain.

The following should be considered when buying grass rugs:

  • Grass rugs come in a variety of weaves. The classic design is simple, but they can also be purchased in heavier, more patterned weaves such as wicker or basketweave.
  • Grass rugs are usually bound in cotton twill or canvas borders that come in a range of colors. Better ones have a latex backing.
  • Grass rugs come in standard sizes from 2x3 feet up to 12x16 feet. Because they are relatively lightweight, these rugs are easy to order online or through a catalog.

Clean grass rugs by vacuuming. Spills should be blotted up right away.
