A brief run down of the different natural flooring products available: Sisal is extracted from the agave sisalana plant, which is farmed in Mexico, Brazil and East Africa. The leaves are crushed to get the pure white fibre known as sisal. It is available in many different weaves and fashionable colours. Seagrass is grown in the tropical climates of China and Vietnam. The crop is harvested, dried and hand spun into cords before being woven into flooring. While extremely hard wearing, its look can be fashinably chunky or beautifully fine and part of its charm lies in its naturally undulating finish. Coir is made from the strong fibres of the coconut husk found in Kerala, India. The fibres are softened in the sea water, so that they can be woven into different designs. Jute comes from the stalk of the giant corchorus plants, grown in Southern India. The fibres are fine, giving a softer feel underfoot and is more suitable for relaxing rooms rather than heavy traffic areas.
