If you are looking for a rug that not only looks amazing but is durable, affordable, and eco-friendly, jute rugs are an ideal choice. Made from natural fibers, jute rugs have a rustic appeal and add warmth and texture to any room. Jute rugs usually come in neutral colors such as beige or light brown, which makes them very versatile and they can fit in with almost any décor, both modern and traditional. With their natural beauty, jute rugs never tend to go out of style and are a very popular rug choice.
Jute is a natural vegetable fiber that is typically grown in countries that have tropical climates such as Bangladesh, Pakistan, Thailand, and Myanmar. Handwoven by skilled artisans, a lot of love and care goes into making jute rugs. Jute fibers start off as a natural color, but they can also be dyed to create more colorful jute rugs. Being 100% bio-degradable and recyclable, one of the big plusses of buying jute rugs is that they are environmentally friendly. And if you are wondering ‘Are jute rugs durable?’ Put simply, yes! Children and pet-friendly, jute rugs are long-lasting and hard-wearing. With their thick fibers, jute rugs can hold up better than some of their synthetic rug counterparts.
Can you clean jute rugs?
Yes! One of the many benefits of jute rugs is that they are low-maintenance and easy to keep clean. The best way to keep your jute rug clean is to vacuum it regularly. Given their natural appearance, jute rugs are very good at hiding dirt and dust, but dust will tend to accumulate within the jute fibers over time which is why regular vacuuming is essential to prevent dirt build up even if your rug looks clean. For an extra clean, you can combine vacuuming with a dry cleaning powder – simply use a stiff bristle brush to work the powder into your rug and then vacuum over the top. As jute is quite absorbent, steam cleaning, wet shampooing, or hosing jute rugs is not recommended. Jute rugs are also not suitable for use in high moisture areas such as the laundry or bathroom. If your rug is exposed to excessive water this can lead to mold or mildew, as well as staining. Given jute rugs are often brown in color, stains are not always as noticeable as they would be otherwise but to ensure your jute rug lasts as long as possible, it’s best to spot clean your rug straight away if you spill anything on it. Rather than rubbing the spill, it is best to use a cloth to blot out any excess liquid. Once you have done that, you can finish the drying off with a hairdryer to remove as much moisture as possible. After that, you can sprinkle some baking soda on the area, then wait for 15 minutes and vacuum over that area. As jute rugs are hand-woven out of natural fibers, the fibers in the rug tend to shed over time. Thankfully, it usually occurs on the underside of the rug so it is less noticeable, and if your rug is a similar color to your floor, you’ll notice the fibers even less. If you do see some loose fibers, they are easy to vacuum up using a strong suction vacuum cleaner.
