The most popular types of natural fiber rugs are jute, sisal, and seagrass. They each have their pros and cons. I’ve owned all three types and learned a few lessons from each. In our Austin home, I wall-to-wall carpeted the master bedroom with seagrass and loved it! I’ve since used jute and sisal, as well. So, if you’re searching for a versatile rug for any room, I created this short and sweet Shop | Natural Fiber Rugs reference guide just for you.

SHOP | NATURAL FIBER RUGS
1 | jute
• Pro: Jute rugs are softer than sisal or seagrass.
• Cons: Jute rugs shed and are the least durable of the three.
2 | sisal
• Pro: Sisal rugs are the most durable. If you have kids and pets, this is the natural fiber rug for you.
• Con: Sisal is the priciest of the three options. But, with natural fiber rugs you get what you pay for.
3 | seagrass
• Pro: Seagrass rugs are the most resistant to stains because it originates from a reed-like marine plant.
• Con: Seagrass has a rougher texture than jute or sisal. Something to think about if you have little ones crawling around.
