How to clean a jute runner

Did you know that natural plant fibres are not fond of moisture? Any liquid spills, including water, could potentially leave a mark. Upon request, our eco-friendly stain inhibitor, Intec, can be applied to mitigate the effect of spills and spots. It's important to act quickly when dealing with spills, so it's advisable to keep a WoolSafe approved Natural Flooring Care Kit nearby. This contains all the necessary products that are safe for natural flooring to ensure your jute runner stays looking beautiful for longer.

Are jute runners good for pets? 

Jute runners are a great choice as they shed very little, which ensures that your beloved pet shouldn't be bothered by the stray plant fibres. These jute runners seamlessly blend style and durability. However, it's important to note that they are also absorbent, so any spills or accidents must be cleaned up promptly using a WoolSafe approved Natural Floor Cleaning Kit. Being a natural fibre, Jute runners are typically undyed and free of harmful toxins, which provides peace of mind as your furry companion lounges on the floor.

Design your own jute runner

Our easy to use Make Me A Rug or Runner tool lets you create your own made to measure natural jute runner. Feel free to get creative and experiment with different flooring and border combinations to create a bespoke, custom made jute runner rug for your space. 

What are jute runners made from? 

Jute is a bast fibre; a soft, woody fibre obtained from the stems of flowering plants which have 'net-veined' leaves. Other bast fibres include flax, linen and hemp. Jute fibre can be extremely long, often between 1 and 4 metres; it is soft, shiny and often referred to as the 'golden fibre.' Jute is grown in monsoon climates, during monsoon season and the plants can grow to full length in only 4 to 6 months. Once harvested, the plant stalks are soaked in water to extract the soft jute fibre from within the stem. The extracted jute fibres are then dried, combed and spun into yarn ready to be woven into jute runners and jute flooring.

Jute is considered to be one of the most eco friendly fibres; it is not only sustainable, but also renewable, fast to grow, easy to grow and easy to re-grow.

Are jute runners soft?

Jute runners are made from naturally soft plant fibres. As part of the process, the hand harvested cut stalks are tied into bundles and soaked in slow-running water to soften the tissues and break the hard bond between the bast and jute fibres. They are hung to dry and then combed out into long silky string fibres, which are then spun into yarn. Due to the way in which it is crafted, jute runners have the most gloriously soft and lustrous finish.

Are jute runners sustainable? 

Yes, jute runners could be considered one of the most sustainable floor covering options. Their hand-harvested plant fibres are easy to grow and fast to replenish making jute fibre easily renewable and the ideal planet friendly choice natural runner rug choice.
