Roundup: Sisal Rugs

Sisal rugs have been all over the home-design world for years now, and for good reason. They're tough, stain resistant, all natural, and affordable. They can also be easily integrated into a number of eco-chic interiors. Sisal is actually the most popular natural plant fiber, probably because of its great versatility. The fiber can be woven into a soft, loose weave that adds extra heft or cushion, mixed with other fibers, and woven into a flat weave that's great for areas like hallways or kitchens.

Sisal rugs are made from fibers from Agave sisalana, a succulent plant that's native to Central America. While 100-percent sisal rugs can be too scratchy for some people, when it's combined with wool, paper, jute, or cotton, it makes for a lovely, natural, and more soft rug.
