For busy areas like the living room, entryway and bedroom, it’s essential to have a rug that can withstand heavy foot traffic. After all, what’s the point in spending money on a rug if you have to replace it right away? Sisal fiber is stronger and more durable than other types of natural fibers, making it a great solution for the home. It’s stylish, too, with a sophisticated neutral tone and interesting texture.

Sisal fiber comes from the green leaves of agave sisalana, a cactus plant. It’s no surprise that this fiber is tough, as it grows in mostly dry regions of Africa and Brazil. It’s so durable in fact, that agave sisalana has often been harvested to be used for rope and twine.

Many homeowners assume that because sisal rugs are strong, they are not soft. This, however, is not the case. Sisal rugs, especially larger looped weaves or when blended with other high-quality fibers like wool, are a cozy addition to one’s space. A rug pad placed underneath adds even more cushion to ensure your home is both comfortable and stylish.

Replace your worn-out rug with one that lasts. Strong, stylish and soft, sisal rugs are the perfect accessory to your interior design.
