Things I wish someone had told me about jute rugs...

One: They trap every pebble that comes off your shoes, every little piece of paper, crumb, lint particle, or feather that may be wafting through your home at any given time. It will all end up trapped in those gorgeous, chocolatey, hand braided rows of jute.

Two: Vacuuming them will require breaking out those fancy attachments you never thought you'd actually need, getting down on your hands and knees, and combing through the fibers trying to pull everything to the surface. And despite your best efforts, stuff will still unravel.

Three: The amount of debris and dust they make will have you completely skeeved out because no matter how often you sweep and mop your floors, the corners of the house somehow manage to look like this two days later.

So am I crazy to want to move onto sisal? What have been your experiences with natural fiber rugs? Love 'em or hate 'em?

  1. Hello! I really don't have a preference, but I am glad you told me the cons of the Jute rugs now, as I was planning on buying them this spring. I will go with something else for sure! :)



Thanks for visiting my little slice of the internet! Comments, questions, and feedback are greatly appreciated and I'll do my best to answer (or input) on anything you have to say.

Oh, and FYI: snarky, mean, abusive, or comments meant to start arguments will not be published. This is my happy place. I'd like to keep it that way. :)
