Important things to consider
Natural floor coverings are made from natural and plant fibres such as wool, coir, jute, sisal and seagrass which provide the perfect materials for creating beautiful and inviting rooms.
Each of these sustainable and natural fibres has its own unique properties.
You should choose your natural fibre with care when considering your room. For example plant fibres should be used with caution in high moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Both coir and jute will absorb moisture and expand and wrinkle, and will shrink back when dry. Though seagrass is not as bad, mould can form if it gets wet. All natural floor coverings should be left to aclimatise to the room in which it's being being prior to installation to ensure the best fit.
Our specialists can advise on the advantages of each material, its wear properties and if any joining is required which will give the best appearance and be the most hard wearing.
