Jute is a soft, shiny, environmentally friendly fiber derived from vegetables. These fibers are spun together into strong threads that can be used to make rugs and mats. Not only does this fiber make high-quality rugs, it is one of the most affordable natural fibers on the market.
Jute is the second most produced vegetable fiber in the world. (Cotton is the first.) This quality, natural fiber has a considerable variety of uses. In their raw, undyed state, the fibers are a shade somewhere between off-white and brown. Jute’s color and high cash value have earned it the nickname of “the golden fiber.” Jute rugs can be power loomed or hand loomed alike and they can come in solid colors or extravagant patterns.
Some jute rugs are blended with different fibers while others are 100% jute. PlushRugs has a vast assortment of jute rugs to choose from.
