Seagrass is an abundant marine grass with thick, flat and smooth fibers. It exhibits a splendid range of natural color ranging from green to brown?it is never dyed. Its fiber is extraordinary durable and is a perfect fit for high traffic areas. It is naturally water-resistant and does an excellent job repelling stains as well. It has a long and distinguished history as an important and treasured natural material in both furniture and floor coverings. The Sabertooth Seagrass Rug features a classic 2x1 straight weave pattern and a non-slip latex backing. It is machine woven and has a Khaki cotton border with mitered edges. 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.
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.
