Sisal is one of nature’s survivors. Intricate, soft and exotic, a sisal carpet is the toughest natural fibre flooring, and brings a long-lasting grace and slice of exotic intrigue to your hallway, sitting room or bedroom.
Hardy and homely, sisal comes from Africa, Brazil and the Mexican Gulf, where it’s extracted from the leaf of Agave sisalana. Dense, finely textured dark-green leaves are hand-picked before being crushed to get the pure white fibres known as sisal. The fibres are then cleaned, dyed to almost any colour, spun and woven into yarn, before being woven into an array of sisal carpet weave designs.
Sisal carpets can be used in most rooms within a home, apart from high moisture areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. It can be fully fitted like a carpet or made into a stunning, individual, custom made rug.
