An All Natural Rug Trend

 Going all natural.

Natural rugs work well as a base layer or neutral backdrop to bold or brightly colored rugs. Whether you choose to layer of have the natural rugs be your showcase, here's a few of our favorites (some of which you may be surprised to learn are all natural).

The Surya Quito collection is constructed of jute. Yes, jute! It appears to be a typical shag rug, but instead of wool or a synthetic fiber, this collection is composed of 1000% jute. Jute, often seen in a woven form (as depicted in the living room above), is a durable fiber made from plants.

Don't think that just because fibers are all natural that you can't have bursts of color. The orange rug from this same collection is naturally bold.

Speaking of colorful, bold and beautiful, this piece is made of 100% recycled cotton, with vibrant colors. Reminiscent of the Moroccan boucherouite style, this rug may not be a style that pops in your mind when you think of natural fibers, but it certainly fits the bill.

Anji Mountain Tangier Collection
Hand tufted in India, this rug from the Anji Mountain Tangier collection combines bold colors in a simple geometric pattern. The pattern adds depth to the design, but does not detract from the unique style.

Jaipur has created this 100% hemp flatweave rug with natural tones, greys and blues. Working within the framework of a natural color palette, yet enhanced by blues and greens, the Shores collection of woven hemp may just create a longing for the ocean, or at least sand-colored hemp beneath your feet.

Infusing gorgeous color in natural fibers that enriches the appearance. Not only do you get the allure of turquoise, but all of the benefits of a natural fiber. This rug from the Nu Loom Natura collection is handmade from 100% jute. Enjoy the turquoise trend, naturally.
