    Handspun Jute

    Jute is a long, soft, shiny plant fibre that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It's easy to produce, sturdy, and biodegradable so it's the perfect material to use in handmade rugs.

    Jute is golden-hued with a shimmery shine to it and has a flexibility and bounce unlike other fibres.

    Jute fibre is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and does not create toxic gas when burned. This means your jute rug can also go straight back into the compost when it’s too old to be of use anymore or recycled in your garden beds as weed matting.

    Wool has such a long tradition as a floor covering material because its very structure makes it ideally suited to this purpose. Even before 500BC it is thought Persian nomads knew about the use of knotted carpets, with their herds of goats and sheep providing high quality wool for this purpose. Wools rich history as a floor covering material means your wool rug will lend an air of unparalleled authenticity and class to your scheme that a synthetic fibre simply cannot match.

    Wool when dyed excels in both its depth and clarity of colour meaning your wool rug will retain its stylish good looks for longer.

    Wool is springy and its fibres can be stretched and still easily return to their natural shape which means that wool rugs will last for many years without showing signs of wear and tear.
