Sisal fiber is exceptionally strong and durable and is one of the most hard-wearing natural fibers. It does not absorb moisture easily and resists saltwater deterioration so it?s an excellent option for seaside home decor. Sustainably harvested in Southern China where the hot, dry climate offers perfect growing conditions. Machine woven 100% Boucle weave Sisal. Pile: Khaki cotton border with mitered edges and non-slip latex backing. Vacuum regularly. Spot clean with a damp cloth. You may use a solution of mild dish soap and water but test the solution in a small, inconspicuous area of the rug to be sure there is no discoloration. For liquid spills, blot?do not rub?with a clean, dry, absorbent cloth. If you choose to clean the rug yourself we recommend Host®, which is a highly rated dry extraction carpet cleaning system which works very well with natural fiber rugs.
Synthetic area rugs and carpets commonly off-gas toxic, harmful voc?s (volatile organic compounds) into the air. these voc?s can be emitted from both the synthetic fibers that make up the rug pile and the synthetic glues used in the backing. Voc?s can cause a multitude of unpleasant symptoms including eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea and dizziness. Choosing a natural fiber area rug which does not off-gas is a positive choice that helps create a healthier environment in your home.
