If you are looking for flooring for your new home, or just simply looking for something to revamp your current home, and you want to consider a product that will be eco-friendly, why not take a look at Seagrass carpeting?
Seagrass is a natural fibre carpeting product that is similar in appearance to sisal. Seagrass is produced predominantly in china, where a system of flooring area with sea water creates seagrass farms which can be harvested with regularity. The seagrass is harvested, dried out and then spun into fabric strands which are then woven into carpeting. The look of seagrass is very natural, which is part of its appeal.
Seagrass is very durable and strong, so it is great for a busy home. It is quite fire and spark resisatant and also relatively hypoallergenic. On the down side, it is not very moisture resistant so you will have to be very careful with spills and moisture. Seagrass also has a tendency to compress with high traffic, so select it for rooms, but not hallways and entrance halls. It is also not recommended for stairways as the product is quite slippery.
Seagrass is difficult to dye as the fibres don’t take colour well, but it comes in a beautiful range of natural colours from pale green to brown and can also be woven in a variety of patterns for you to choose from!
