Earth Rugs™ are made from 100% organic, natural jute fiber. Jute fiber is harvested from the bamboo-like Jute plant. Earth Rugs™ are products of the weavers art practiced for centuries by the native craftspeople of Bangladesh and India. Our rich colors and authentic designs are rooted in American tradition. Jute Rugs date back to the very beginning of rug weaving. Jute Rugs were used extensively in the 17th through the 19th centuries throughout the old British Empire. Earth Rugs™ are eco-friendly and jute is naturally biodegradable!
Jute is a primary resource fiber, produced directly from the earth and is a sustainable resource! Jute is a reed, like bamboo, that grows best in fertile delta soil. The Jute plant is harvested then split open to expose the inner fibers. The inner fibers of the Jute stalk are very soft and after retting, cleaning and combing they are spun into yarn. Jute is biodegradable.  Jute grown in the rich delta soil of Bangladesh is organic too!
Jute is one of the strongest fibers known to man! It was used on seagoing ships before the invention of steel cables. Woven into rugs, jute fibers provide lasting beauty and strength. They withstand commercial use and can last a lifetime in the home.  Reverse rugs and table accents for durability and versatility
Jute has natural water repellent characteristics. Remember, it is a reed that naturally grows in water. Water cannot damage a rug woven from jute fiber.
Just like other fine rugs, they can be cleaned with mild soap and water, a mild carpet shampoo or commercially dry-cleaned. Cleaning enhances the beauty of these rugs. Vacuum normally. Do not machine wash.
Earth Rugs™ are 100% natural and made from organic jute fiber. Natural jute fiber is safer to use in any home with children or pets than synthetic rugs made with man made fibers. Other natural fiber braided rugs like wool are often treated with chemicals for moth proofing. Jute rugs are naturally moth proof and create a more allergen free home.
They are yarn dyed with the highest quality chemical dyes available.  The dyes used in Earth Rugs meet the same quality standards as those used for garment dying. Throughout history jute fiber has been treasured for its capacity to take and hold beautiful colors. Brilliantly dyed jute fibers have been found in Neolithic remains dating back thousands of years. The natural sheen of jute fiber retains the look of fine silk.
