Braided Jute Runner Rug, Natural, Runner

at The White Company
This chunky textured runner is made from plaited Indian jute, which boasts a naturally silvered colour. Ideal on both hard floors and carpets, it’s just the thing to bring a fresh and rustic look to your space. Jute is a natural fibre that doesn’t rely on insecticides or pesticides, making it completely biodegradable. The plant reaches maturity quickly – between four and six months – so it is an incredibly efficient source of renewable materials. Relying on natural rainfall (rather than extensive and energy-consumptive irrigation systems), it also absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen much faster than trees, and enhances the fertility of the soil it grows in for future crops. Materials • 100% jute • The jute plant is naturally darker at the root than it is at the tip of the plant, and so some subtle colour variation can be seen on the yarns, which adds a touch of artisanal charm See more: Rugs, Home
