Advantages of Using Natural Sisal

Agave Sisalana Cactus is the name of the plant that supplies the fibre for the Natural Fibre floor covering ‘Sisal’. Grown in sub-tropical climates that include South Africa, China, Brazil & Mexico, the fibre used in production comes from the flesh of the lower leaves. Natural Sisal is a firm fibre that is extremely hard wearing, with different textures being achieved through different weaves.

Being a 100% natural fibre, Sisal is biodegradable making it an ideal environmentally friendly option for floorcovering. In addition, the modern farming and manufacturing process now achieves a very low impact on the environment. This is done by restricting the amount of pesticides on the plants and using minimal amounts of chemicals in the processing of the raw sisal material. Once the rolls of Natural Sisal reach our factory, Floorspace does its part for the environment by using an underlay with a clean manufacturing process. Our preferred underlay is a needle punch recycled pressed cotton when installing wall to wall so as to achieve the best result. We also minimise the use of glues and adhesives.

Natural Sisal floorcoverings are increasingly popular for a number of reasons. Their increased use is mostly due to their durability, versatile nature, varying weaves and large range of colours. Whether made into rugs, runners or installed wall to wall, Sisal is suitable for many varied applications including traditional, modern, formal and casual settings as well as commercial use. The sisal fibre is very sturdy and although it isn’t the softest of materials, Sisal is extremely hard wearing and long lasting.
