Braided rugs are a great accessory to add in a home. They can come in large sizes to use as area rugs, smaller sizes to use throughout the house, or in slices to use as door mats. Braided rugs come in many shapes, from your conventional oval, round, rectangle, or oblong shapes to more exotic designs like hearts, dog bones, fish, or even cat shapes. There are also many braided accessories that include coasters, chair pads, swatches, placemats, stair treads, table runners, trivets, or even baskets.
Many braided rugs are made from the jute plant. Jute resembles bamboo as it is considered a reed. The jute plant is broken open and the soft fibers are spun into yarn. The yarn is then dyed, and it is known for its ability to take and hold the different colors. The jute fibers are very strong and were used on ships before cables where invented. This shows that the braided rugs that are made from jute fibers, are extremely durable. Along with their strength, they cannot be ruined with water. Like mentioned before, jute is a reed so it grows in the water and can repel it. Jute has been used to make rugs from the very beginning and is very eco-friendly because it is biodegradable.
So, if you are looking to add a braided accessory to your table or stairs or adding a colorful braided rug in front of your fireplace, be sure to add a strong, durable rug that is woven out of jute.
