Beautiful and Green Rugs at 1001 Shops

If you are like me, you are trying to switch over most of your everyday products to more environmentally friendly "green" products. Did you know that you could also buy "green" when it comes to rugs? 1001 Shops has a lot of beautiful and natural rugs. They even have entire websites dedicated to them! 

You can buy a hand spun Jute rug at What is Jute? It is produced from plants and it is a soft, shiny, long vegetable fibre that can be spun into strong threads. It is actually the second most produced fiber in the world (after cotton). These Jute rugs are all natural, free of dyes and handcrafted. Here are a few of the Jute rugs that they have for sale:

Don't they look soft and comfy? They look like the type of rugs that make you want to take your shoes off and walk around barefooted. Or, maybe even lay on the floor while you watch a movie.

1001 Shops also has a shop that sells Seagrass rugs. is sure to have the Seagrass rug for you.  According to their website: "Seagrass rugs are made from the flowering seagrass plant that has adapted to growing completely submerged in water." The Seagrass is harvested and then they weave it into these wonderful rugs. They are of course, all natural. One huge benefit to Seagrass rugs is that they don't collect dust like some other rugs do. This means that you don't have to worry about allergies. also sells Seagrass rugs with a variety of colored cotton borders. Here are a few of their Seagrass rugs:
