For those that want to use natural fabrics in your home rather than those made with man made fibers then linen rugs are a great solution. Linen area rugs have the benefit of being extremely durable whilst also being more sustainable and healthier for your family than other non natural materials. Linen area rugs can be thought of as a casual material with a high-end look, combining ease of handling and simple elegance with strength and durability.
A linen area rug is tough yet supple, it can be washed, and can work in a high-traffic room or where there is pet hair and children. Natural fibers like those of a linen are rug can be stain resistant, thanks to their inherent soil repellent properties. One batch of linen may not match another over a period of time as the idiosyncrasy and variability of any natural fiber is part of the beauty and charm at the base of its appeal. One thing to be careful of is not to use anything but PH balanced cleaning solutions on linen rugs.
Many long wearing fibers that are not naturally occurring feel as comfortable against the skin as natural fabrics, yet they are cheap for a reason, they may cost more in the long term. Linen carpet is an example of a sustainable, natural area rug made from the plant fibers of the flax plant, featuring superb durability and elegant look.
