Natural fibre rugs are rugs woven from material derived from plants. Jute is the most well-known of these materials, but sisal, seagrass and hemp are also commonly used to create natural fibre rugs. Each of these materials has unique characteristics and benefits, but they are all highly durable, making them perfect for high-traffic areas. Natural fibres like jute and hemp are also fast-growing, renewable resources, making rugs made from these materials a sustainable and eco-friendly choice. While natural fibre rugs will work well in many areas of the home, they should not be used outside, so you'll want to look to other materials for doormats and outdoor rugs.
Natural fibre rugs are readily available in muted, neutral tones that complement their organic feel, but you can also find bolder solid-coloured rugs as well as patterned rugs made from natural fibres. Many of the natural rug options in the Pottery Barn Canada collection are made of 100% natural, plant-based fibres, but you'll also find some that are woven of a combination of natural fibres and wool or chenille, which provides a slightly different look and feel. Here are just a few of the natural fibre rugs available at Pottery Barn Canada:
