Our jute rugs are an environmentally friendly product that is biodegradable and extremely long lasting. Jute is one of the strongest plant fibers known to man and was used on seagoing ships before the invention of steel cables and wire rope. The Harvest jute series is a soothing mix of wheat and honey beige accented with russet, rosy red, dark green and a hint of blue. When purchasing a larger rug especially, we recommend that you order a swatch to verify colors before placing your order. The 8" round swatch can be used as a trivet after purchase. Use mild soap and cold water for cleaning minor spills and stains. The jute rugs and accessories should not be machine washed. However, they can be hand washed in cold water. Please hang any wet rugs or accessories to dry to avoid color transfer to your floor or furniture. Use a non slip rug pad as needed under your jute rug. Our rugs are handcrafted and sometimes will exhibit small size and dye lot variations.
