Any thoughts about seagrass vs. jute vs. sisal rugs in terms of durability, softness, color etc.

      Be sure to stand on them all barefoot before you buy – my mother in law had a rug that I think was seagrass in her guest bath and it was so rough that it hurt to stand on it barefoot. Which is important especially in the bathroom, but also if you have it in a room where you may want to sit on the floor.

      I have a sisal rug in front of my front door and I love the durability and fact that it doesn’t show any wear or dirt. It does get water marks that don’t go away if it gets really wet (like if the kids spill a glass of water on it).

      I’m actually on the search for a new natural fiber rug and haven’t been sure whether to go with jute, seagrass or sisal. So I have no words of wisdom, but can’t wait to hear what others say. I’m leaning towards sisal!

      I’ve been to a friend’s house with a sisal rug and it wasn’t too scratchy at all. I can’t say much about jute or seagrass because I don’t have any experience with them. Good luck!
