Carpets made of sisal are naturally strong and suitable for most indoor spaces. We are a little extra fond of the sisal fiber because it also absorbs more carbon dioxide than it produces, which benefits the environment.

Sisalmatta natural

Sisal is one of the world’s strongest natural fibers.

Our beautiful durable sisal rugs are made in southern India. The use of sisal is advantageous from an environmental point of view because sisal absorbs more carbon dioxide than it produces. It is also one of the world’s strongest natural fibers. Carpets made of sisal are therefore very durable, even in rooms that are subject to a great deal of wear and tear – for example, the hall way and kitchen.

Thanks to the natural cavities, the sisal can absorb smaller amounts of moisture without being damaged and swallows sand and gravel grains without being passed on in the home.

In addition to a durable, high quality product and practical function, this all-natural material creates a warm ambience in your room.

Care advice for our sisal products:

  1. Indoor use only
  2. Vacuum clean or shake
  3. Stains should be removed immediately with a damp cloth 
  4. May not be soaked in water.

The sisal plant got its name from the city of Sisal in Mexico where it originated.

more about the material sisal

Sisal (Agave Sisalana) is a large, herbaceous plant in the family of asparagus plants. It’s been named after the city ofSisal in Mexico where it originated. There have been findings of use of Sisal going as far back as 8000 years ago,when both the Aztecs and the Mayan people used it for cords, thread, fishing nets and fabrics.

The sisal plant is durable and grows well in warm and dry areas where other crops may find it difficult to thrive. Sisal demands very little and is resistant to diseases. It grows e.g. in Mexico, Kenya, Tanzania and Brazil. The plant lives between 7-10 years and during this period it produces 200-250 useful leaves for fiber production, where each leaf contains about 1000 fibers. The fibers are extracted by crushing the leaves and the fibers are brushed and baled for export.

The sisal plant has up to 2 m long leaves that sit on a short stem and it’s in the leaves that the sustainable fiber called sisal is found. The sisal fibers are about a meter long and are ivory colored, shiny and extremely strong.
