What’s That Exotic Fiber In Karastan Area Rugs?

 In Karastan

We’ve talked a lot on this blog about how karastan area rugs and carpets are an eco-friendly choice for home decorating. That’s because it means a lot to us that our product is helping reduce the carbon footprint on our planet.

This week we thought we’d identify some of the natural, sustainable materials that might be found in your karastan area rugs. In addition to cotton and wool, there are some exotic plants that lend their fibers to protect the environment and your feet.

Bamboo is one of the best renewable resources, as it grows very quickly. Where an oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity, bamboo can be harvested in three.

Jute is a type of plant fiber grown in India, Bangladesh and China. The thread created from jute is quite strong, and it is among the cheapest of natural fibers available.

Seagrass is an entirely aquatic marine flowering plant. It grows in large meadows in areas of shallow water.

Sisal comes from a cactus plant called Agave sisalana that grows in Africa and Brazil.

Karastan area rugs are eco-friendly, hard-wearing, lost lasting, and now you know how exotic they just might be!
