Rug Materials - Jute

jute jute rugs rug materials what is jute

Jute is one of the most commonly used natural materials in rug manufacturing. Today we look deeper into what Jute is and why it has become a popular choice of material in rugs.

Jute is an annual crop grown mainly in India and Bangladesh, which has been harvested for centuries. Golden brown and shiny in appearance, jute has a soft but strong and durable texture. These versatile qualities are a result of Jute's unique biology - it consists in part of plant fibres and part wood fibres. Second only to cotton in global production of vegetable fibres, it is an affordable fibre to use in rug manufacturing.

Jute is also an environmentally friendly, natural fibre, with a low carbon footprint compared to other materials, due to many unique qualities:

  • Jute has little need for the use of harmful pesticides and fertilisers, and as such the soil it is grown in remains fertile and enriched with micronutrients even after harvesting.
  • They convert huge amounts of C02 into oxygen (Jute trees generate 3 times more C02 than most trees during their growth, which is then converted into oxygen).

Jute fibres are very long (often 3 or 4 metres) when harvested, which takes place 4-6 months from planting. Fibres used for production of products such as floor rugs are initially hidden beneath bark, which is soaked for a few days to make the fibres come loose. The fibres are then extracted, washed, and left to dry.

Jute's beneficial qualities when it comes to rugs include it being anti-static, acoustic and thermal insulating, strong, durable and eco-friendly.

Below are a few of our many rugs made from Jute fibre. Please visit the link below for a full list of our rugs that feature Jute (some are Jute only, and others are part Jute and part other materials).

Exactly what we were looking for!

After looking around for a while for a perfect rug for our new sitting area, I came across Rugs of Beauty website. Found the Atrium Polo selection which was exactly what I had been looking for. Price was great (in fact cheaper than most that we had been looking at). Description and sizing was spot on and best of all it was delivered straight to our door within a week of ordering. Have since recommended this store to all my friends. Love our new rug!

Love our Shag rug!

We were so happy with our Arnhem Contemporary White Microfiber Soft Shaggy Round Rug. It gives our sitting room a wonderfully luxurious feel. The colour is exactly as shown on the website. It is not cheap looking and does not shed. Rugs Of Beauty were very efficient and friendly to deal with. Couldn’t be happier. I will definitelly be buying another rug from them again soon.
