Grown and produced in the paddy fields of China, which are flooded with seawater during crop season, our Seagrass carpets are an entirely natural product. The seagrass is collected by hand and sundried, then spun into cords which are woven into the designs used for our floor coverings.
As a carpet, seagrass is smooth and shiny, and can therefore be used in lots of different places around your home. Because it has a sometimes slippery surface, we do not recommend using it to cover your stairways. While seagrass is said to reduce noise, it is not the softest to walk on simply because of its texture.
At Coirtex, we install Seagrass as a wall to wall covering and create custom made rugs.
We stock our seagrass in a 4m wide roll form with a wide latex back. Because it is a Chinese product, it has a sponge latex which decreases the price in comparison to that of Sisal, Coir and Jute/Hemp. We also offer seagrass in a square form 30cm x 30cm (estimated) and this can be made into any size in multiples of 30cm. This option cannot be fitted wall to wall.
