“Like we mentioned before, seagrass is a natural flooring material. It is grown in Chinese paddies and marshes that are flooded with seawater. The grass and reeds that grow in these paddies are then harvested, sun dried, and woven into yarn. This process has a very low impact on the earth in comparison to the manufacturing processes for synthetic materials such as nylon or olefin.
Seagrass is completely biodegradable, so when it’s served its time as your carpet it can be recycled without taking up space in a landfill for eternity.” – Rochester Flooring
“Sisal, with the botanical name Agave sisalana, is a species of Agave native to southern Mexico but widely cultivated and naturalized in many other countries. It yields a stiff fibre used in making various products. The term sisal may refer either to the plant’s common name or the fibre, depending on the context. It is sometimes referred to as “sisal hemp”, because for centuries hemp was a major source for fibre, and other fibre sources were named after it.” – Wikipedia
“Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is produced primarily from plants in the genus Corchorus, which was once classified with the family Tiliaceae, more recently with Malvaceae, and has now been reclassified as belonging to the family Sparrmanniaceae. The primary source of the fiber is Corchorus olitorius, but it is considered inferior toCorchorus capsularis. “Jute” is the name of the plant or fiber that is used to make burlap, Hessian or gunny cloth.” – Wikipedia
