What is Sisal?
Naturally sisal comes from the cactus plant 'Agave Sisalana' so not only is it a very stylish choice, but an eco-friendly one. Commonly sourced from Brazil, China and South Tanzania and evolved to survive in hot climates with very minimal rainfall in Sumer. Once stripped and dried for 30 days it is ready to be woven into beautiful, organic flooring solutions.
The Benefits of Sisal Carpet

Disadvantages of Sisal
-Precaution does have to be taken in humid and moist places in your house. We don’t recommend fitting them in bathrooms or kitchen.
