Bamboo rugs are a beautiful combination of form and function. They can add an Asian-inspired accent to any space, and they are exceptionally strong. Bamboo rugs come in a variety of colors and styles and are made from renewable resources.
Bamboo is a type of grass that grows extremely fast and has strength similar to wood. This naturally sustainable material is quickly regrown with few natural resources needed for cultivation. Fibers from this woody plant are woven to make a smooth, durable product. Like other rugs made from natural fibers, bamboo rugs are durable, dirt resistant, and environmentally friendly. Grime and other dry dinge are easily removed with regular sweeping and vacuuming, but as with other fibers such as seagrass and chenille, bamboo is susceptible to mold and mildew if allowed to get wet or if kept in a space with high humidity. If the rug gets wet, hand-dry it as much as possible then hang it to air dry.
Natural bamboo rugs have a similar appearance to hardwood. These rugs come in a variety of natural tones as well as vibrant, dyed colors. The neutral colors of most bamboo rugs can add a warm feel to any room, and if a splash of color is what you want, many bamboo rugs come with colored borders made of cotton.
