The 10 Best Jute Rugs
This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in January of 2017. If you're searching for a natural fiber rug that is light, suitable for various rooms, and adaptable to multiple decorating styles, look no further than jute. Pieces made from this sustainable material can be used to add visual texture and an organic feel, creating graceful and inviting spaces. But you'll want to reserve them for interior use, as they won't stand up to the elements well. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

When searching for jute rugs, it's crucial to remember that this material does not respond well to repeated, heavy traffic or to exterior use, so any option will require careful treatment to last. But, even with this careful treatment, the Rugs USA Chunky Loop and NuLoom Natura Collection Cameron simply can't hold up over the long haul, so we decided to remove them. We also had to opt against the Natural Area Rugs Toledo because of availability issues. Instead, we recommend the Stone & Beam Contemporary or Anji Mountain American Graffiti as top choices. Both are relatively durable, especially the latter, as the denim content helps add sturdiness and longevity. Additionally, we think the NuLoom Paisley and Cotton Craft Multi Chindi Braid are fun choices, although both are on the brighter, more eye-catching side, which might be too much for subdued or nautical sensibilities. The LR Resources Round is also quite noticeable (in fact, it looks something like a doily); it's less user-friendly than some, however, as the holes are noticeable when you walk on it. It does make a fine conversation piece, though.
