On-trend and fashionable, natural grasses continue to grow in popularity and remain a popular request by customers. In addition to being perfect when used for area rugs or wall to wall flooring in smaller width rooms, natural grasses can also be customized to fit around fireplaces, stairs, landing areas, door jams, and unusually shaped rooms. We continually update our collection of natural grasses and fibers. Stop by our Houston showroom to view the latest additions!
Benefits of Natural Fiber Carpeting:
- Provides a beautiful backdrop with a lot of texture
- Provides a natural, upscale, current & transitional or contemporary look
- Excellent for sound absorption
- Renewable, environmentally responsible resource
- Protective coatings can be applied to repel liquid spills
The three types of natural grasses include:
Affordable, excellent cleanability, monochromatic
Large variety of colors and patterns including herringbones & diamonds, more abrasive to the touch, newer sisals mix wool fibers together to give a softer touch and richer appearance
Highly textured with a thick, ropelike look and is the softest category of grass
The inherent beauty of wool is that it offers fashionable colors, luxury patterns, exceptional softness and durability for a look that lasts. Wool is a natural textile fiber that comes from sheep - the sheep are sheered and the wool is treated and processed into yarn. It is a completely renewable resource and, when it is time to discard the carpet, it is biodegradable and will not hurt the environment.
For long-lasting fashion, beauty and performance, wool is the lowest cost and highest value fiber over the long run. Today, with the introduction of higher-end nylon carpet, upgrading to wool is not such a huge move. When these features are important, price is secondary.
