Sisal is made from the leaf of an Agave plant which is family to the cactus plant. Sisal is stronger and more durable than other natural fibers. The fibers are extracted by crushing the pulpy leaf, washed, dried and graded before being spun into yarn. Sisal is well known for the great durability of its yarns and does not build up static nor trap dust. The natural colour of Sisal is an off white and thus all Sisals are dyed with vegetable dyes.
Sisal carpets and wall coverings have been widely used for decades thus still making it a perfect rug in your home or installing it wall to wall. Our range of Sisal is the biggest in our collection with various colours and weaves. Depending on the weave some sisal will feel a lot softer under foot than others. Sisal is recommended for any area in your home, except bathrooms and kitchens; reason being sisal will shrink with lots of water being put on it. Spot removal involves the use of a dry cleaning powder. The life span of sisal is easily 8 years from a durability point of view.
We install our Sisal on 1000 grams of under felt, fitting takes place like any conventional carpet.
