Jute Rugs

Jute rugs are made from the jute plant, whose long fiber strands result in rugs that are extremely durable and smooth. They are inexpensive and comfortable underfoot. Most are reversible for even longer wear. They come in a wide range of colors and have a soft, natural patterned look that makes them suitable for any room.

They following should be considered when buying a jute rug:

  • Jute rugs usually come in standard rug sizes from 2x3 feet up to 9x12 feet. Ordering a custom size rug can be more expensive. Because they are relatively lightweight, these rugs are easy to order online or through a catalog.
  • Check to see how the ends of the rug are finished off. Better rugs will be edged with hand knotted fringe rather then just folded over and sewn.
  • Using a rug pad under a jute rug is recommended to prevent slipping.

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