Living in modern society as we do, many people are now choosing natural materials over man made to furnish their homes, to either be friendlier to the environment by using natural but sustainable sources or they need to combat aggrivating allergens such as dust. Floorwork can source you carpets produced from Sisal, Seagrass and Jute which all have advantages that equal or excel where man made materials fail.
Originally used to create strong and resilient twine, we use this stunning material to create graceful and exotic floor coverings. Sourced from Brazil, China and Southern Tanzania, the Sisal plant is one of nature’s true survivors – evolved to thrive in a punishing climate with little rainfall in summer. Once stripped and dried for 30 days it is ready to be crafted into the treasured floorcovering fit to grace your home.
Arguably our sturdiest material, this hardy grass has to withstand all sorts of abuse to be worthy enough to grace your home. Sourced from Vietnamese and Chinese plantations, this hardy grass has to withstand copious amounts of ocean salt, raging typhoons and the heat of the Far Eastern sun before being woven into our signature styles of Original, Herringbone and Basketweave in both Normal and Fine weaves.
The Mahanadi Belt monsoon season sees an explosion of healthy, green Jute stems, made tougher by the fertile, coastal waters. One it has been ret (immersed into slow-running water) and stripped, the fibres are ready to be weaved into our collection of gorgeous, classic designs that date back to the Nineteenth Century.
