Seagrass Flooring the natural alternative to carpet
Seagrass is a strong resistant floor covering that is grown in paddy fields in china and during the growing season, the fields are flooded with sea water - once harvested and dried it is spun into yarn that makes the beautiful carpets we know and love.
The yarn has impermeable property's and so it is very hard to dye - so in most cases the flooring comes in it natural green colour or a slight brown shade
Most seagrass has a latex backing this makes the floor covering more durable and also stops any adhesive that is used during the installation from coming through
Being a natural product there can be inconsistencies in colour and the weave - similar to knots found in wood this is normal and is considered part of its natural charm
Sea grass is woven into a few styles - natural weave herringbone both in standard and fine versions and a chunky basket weave the herringbone is also available with a coloured weft of sisal that brings colour to the seagrass
Seagrass carpet is recommended for medium domestic and light contract situations and can be laid throughout your home -but please note - office roller chairs tend to dig into the weave and damage the natural flooring in a very short period of time - if you do have a roller chairs in the room where your seagrass flooring is being installed.
