Natural rugs are one of the real success stories in interior design over the past decade. However, natural fibre rugs are part of the ancient rug making story. Decorative floor covering made from bulrushes can be seen in ancient Egyptian wall coverings, and dried grasses were used throughout the ancient world as basic floor coverings. In Britain, rushes or hay were spread over the packed earth floors of peasant homes or the stone floors of grand halls. Later, the British Empire came across the jute, seagrass, coir and other natural fibre rugs from the tropics and sub-tropics. These fibres were often used for under-matting for fine wool rugs, while the coir mat became the popular doormat. In more recent decades, interior designers turned increasingly to natural flooring, which has also benefited from the boom in interest in natural fibres and colours. Rugs allow you to try natural flooring in large or small areas of the home without the expense of fitting, while also still showing off the floor under the rugs.
