Seagrass rugs are famous for their texture and durability. They will hold up for years even with kids and pets. Seagrass is a reed grown in salt-water marshes, the material is non-porous, making it incredibly water-resistant. This impermeability makes spills easy to wipe up.
Seagrass has a beautiful neutral color consisting of light brown and beige hues with a hint of sage green. These rugs are smooth to the touch and have a natural sheen. A seagrass rug looks great in any room with any decor.
- Seagrass rugs are often bound with cotton or leather and can come already backed with latex to keep them from sliding around. If they do not have a latex backing, you will need a separate rug pad underneath.
- Seagrass doesn't take dye well, so you are limited to your color palette, but the great thing about their neutral color, is they go with any decor.
- Seagrass rugs are not the softest material, they almost feel like hardwood. They can be rough on little feet or for crawling babies, but it is easy to layer a softer rug on top of your seagrass rug if you find it too hard.
- Seagrass rugs work well in any room (but not outside). Even a dining room can host a seagrass rug, as the rug hides the food spills.
- The durability of a seagrass rug is hard to beat. I have friends with seagrass rugs that have lasted them for over seven years, and they still look beautiful!
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A SEAGRASS RUG
- Positive customer feedback. If other people are satisfied with their purchase, you should be too.
- A well-stitched border that will last for years to come.
- Densely woven material.
- Look for these high-quality brands: Safavieh, NuLoom, Anji Mountian, Natural Area Rugs, and Jaipur.
- A cotton canvas backing is more Eco-friendly than a latex backing.
