About Jute

Jute is a vegetable fiber grown in India and Bangladesh, and is one of the most sustainable and affordable natural fibers, second only to cotton in amount produced and variety of uses. The long, shiny, soft stalks are soaked for severals weeks, then stripped and spun, resulting in the classic natural tan color of burlap (which is typically made from jute).

To create our braided rugs, these spun fibers are dyed into an endless variety of colors, then flat braided into various shapes. Some are sold as is, but we specialize in finish products that feature stenciled artwork designed by dozens of popular folk artists. The unique end result is environmentally friendly, practical, useful, affordable, and beautiful. We can't say enough about jute!

Why Choose Braided Jute Rugs?

Jute is an all natural fiber, and an environmentally-friendly renewable resource. Naturally stain and fire resistant, it is ideal for medium-traffic areas, or near fireplaces. Their flat-braid nature means they are typically reversible, adding to the life of the rug. Easily cleaned by vacuuming, sweeping, or shaking. You may spot clean as necessary, but do not steam clean.
