All About Natural Fibers

Abaca Rug Fibers
Part of the banana family, abaca is considered the strongest of all natural fibers. The dramatic range of natural colors – from the glossy, white inner fibers to the dark, coarse outer fibers – and variation in texture make abaca uncommonly beautiful as natural fiber rug. There are no dyes used in our abaca products and no backing material. Merida’s abaca rugs are 100% natural.

Hemp Rug Fibers
Hemp can grow to between 2-4 meters high, making its fibers among the world’s longest soft natural fibers, perfect for natural fiber rugs. Hemp is a long, strong and durable fiber that can be made into fabrics, textiles, paper, plastics, fuels, detergents, cosmetics and foods. Because it does not attract pests, hemp does not require the use of pesticides, making it a very environmentally-friendly crop.

Jute Rug Fibers

Jute is a soft, flexible and hard wearing fiber that is well-suited to a natural floor covering material. Merida Meridian’s distinctive 100% jute rugs are woven in India and will resist wear and tear thanks to the abrasion-resistant properties of the fiber. Jute fiber is considered an eco-friendly material that is 100% biodegradable and recyclable. Merida’s jute yarns are not dyed.

Paper Rug Fibers
As a truly innovative use of a familiar material, Merida’s distinctive paper products begin with virgin wood sourced from sustainable, managed forests in the U.S. The paper yarn is created by twisting strips of paper on a high speed twister that produces firm and strong paper cord. During this process, a wax emulsion is applied to the paper to help it spin smoothly, also adding to the yarn’s water resistance. This construction results in an uncommonly strong, durable natural fiber rug that is smooth and soft underfoot.

Seagrass Rug Fibers
Seagrass can be found around the world and is known for retaining its fresh, grassy scent long after it has left the field. The natural fiber is rarely dyed, partly because its natural colors are so varied and attractive, but also because it effectively repels moisture. When seagrass is woven into a rug, the result is a highly spill-resistant, durable, resilient natural fiber rug that is comfortable underfoot and retains the fresh look of the outdoors. Merida’s seagrass products bring a touch of exotic elegance and unusual texture to any room.

Sisal Rug Fibers
Sisal fiber is obtained from the agave plant, and Merida Meridian sources the world’s highest quality sisal, the longest, finest, and whitest fiber, from the agave plantations of East Africa. Merida’s superior spinning capability results in strong, lustrous yarns. Sisal natural fiber rugs are naturally sound-absorbing, antistatic, and extremely durable due to the inherent qualities of this tough, hard wearing fiber.

Sisal is a sustainable and renewable source of woven floor covering material and is a more environmentally friendly alternative to synthetic substitutes. No pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used in sisal production, and most weeding is done by hand rather than through the use of herbicides.

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets offers natural fiber products from Design Materials, Fibreworks, Merida Meridian, The Natural Company, Unique Carpets, Prestige Mills, Van Dijk and others. In addition, the showroom is filled with a variety of binding options including a huge range of reasonably priced leather binding in every color and texture imaginable. We specialize in fabricating area rugs.

Custom Runners for Halls and Stairs

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets can add some spice to a boring staircase or hallway with runners in a variety of materials. In the case of sisal or seagrass, we can apply specialty edge treatments such as leather, cotton, jute, linen or microfiber. Notice in the photo below that it was a “continuous” runner that we ran onto the landing onto the next flight of stairs.

Seagrass stair runner

Perhaps you have an extra wide set of stairs or hall. Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has a variety of sources to create the perfect size for your home. We can even add complimentary borders as shown in the photo below. We had this extra wide runner fabricated to warm up the marble floor in the entry and hall. This was created for one of our designer’s personal residence in Newport Beach.

Custom wool runner with border

Perhaps you have a curved staircase. Shown below is a rug that we had custom made for a client in Laguna Beach. The client had an oriental rug in the entry. We made a complimentary pattern and templated each stair. This allowed us to “pattern match” the runner for the curved stairs. The photo shows each individual piece spread out to create the curve.

Custom designed wool runner

Shown below is a custom designed runner for a curved stairway. The client, located in Corona del Mar, had a tapestry throw that inspired the border design. We also created a large coordinating area rug for the family room which incorporated the tapestry border design along with an interpretation of the wrought iron railing that was on the stairway and second floor balcony looking down below.
