Buy Seagrass Carpet at Wholesale / Discount Prices
Seagrass Carpets are made from the Sedge family of plants, which grow in the low-lying areas of the Asia-Pacific region. The perennial grasses are harvested for paddy fields that are flooded with seawater during the growing cycle. When the grass is mature, the fields are drained and the plants are cut and bundled. Workers twist (or ply) the grass entirely by hand and send it to factories where it is wound on tubes, loaded on creels and woven into carpet.
Seagrass, once thought to be an unusable fiber, has been transformed by weavers into sought after products such as baskets, placemats, bowls, and flooring. The yarn, which is strong, durable and non-porous, has a naturally smooth texture, subtle sheen and warm hue that make if a popular choice for use in carpets and rugs.
