Let’s start with sisal: a beautiful fiber produced from the dense leaves of the Agave Sisalana plant, spiky bushes which grow in sub-tropical climates. The beauty of this carpet doesn’t only run skin-deep, either; it is a highly versatile material available in a plethora of colors and designs.
Due to its innate adaptation characteristics, sisal carpets and rugs can be adapted to nearly any décor; be it a casual, semi-formal, or formal environment, this carpet can be woven and dyed to complement any room in your home. An added benefit is the sheer uniqueness of sisal. It looks and feels different from regular carpeting which only serves to enhance any room in your home.
That said, pure sisal carpeting can be somewhat cost prohibitive. If you seek a less expensive option, sisal is sometimes combined with wool creating a hybrid carpet virtually indistinguishable from typical carpeting. The sisal/wool blend also has a tendency to be slightly stronger and equally durable.
Speaking of durability, it is certainly a factor for most individuals when choosing carpeting. Sisal is a tough, long-lasting fiber which is remarkably soft and appealing to the touch. It also contains anti-static properties creating a relatively low maintenance product. Pure sisal is sound absorbent and flame resistant making it a practical choice as well.
There truly is no downside to this remarkable fiber. It is biodegradable, renewable and environmentally friendly. The look and feel is luxurious and beautiful. Do yourself and your home a favor by checking out this versatile product next time you are in the market for carpeting!
