Kersaint Cobb Sisal carpet is made from the leaves of the Mexican agave cactus plant or Agave sisalana. It was originally used by Aztecs to make crude fabrics and paper, and traditionally for rope and twine. The stiff fibre of the large fleshy leaves is stripped off before being processed and spun into a coarse, strong yarn. The fibres are naturally white and can be dyed to give a variety of finishes â€“ Kersaint Cobb uses vegetable dyes to create muted colour blends or solid tones. Sisal can be woven into fine carpets, herringbone styles or thick boucle.
Kersaint Cobb Sisal Carpet – Pros
â€“ Practical and durable â€“ Sisal is one of the strongest natural fibres, known for its longevity and the fact it doesnâ€™t wear easily. Itâ€™s often used for door mats because itâ€™s so hard wearing, also making it ideal for stairs and landings
â€“ antistatic qualities â€“ it doesnâ€™t build up static, meaning you donâ€™t get little shocks, itâ€™s smooth to touch
â€“ it draws moisture from the air and which means it helps maintain humidity in a home
â€“ excellent sound absorbing qualities
â€“ Itâ€™s low maintenance and doesnâ€™t trap dust like other coverings, making it ideal for allergy sufferers
â€“ Sisal is naturally dyed without artificial colours, pollutants or chemicals, therefore you know youâ€™re putting something 100% natural into your home
â€“ It dyes well, meaning thereâ€™s lots of choice when it comes to colour and tone
â€“ it is sustainably farmed and is fully biodegradable. The sisal plant requires little to no fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides
