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.
