Jute Rugs. What You Need To Know.
I'm sure you've seen them. Rugs with a backing that looks like burlap, or rugs that have those thick beige fibers on the face or in the middle of the rug when you bend it open.
Jute is quick to grow, cheap to make, and is in a LARGE number of rugs today.
And they can cause LARGE problems if you do not know it's in there. (Many labels only share the face fiber content but not what the warps and wefts are, so it might say 100% wool and not mention the jute foundation at all.)
Here's my article on jute rugs, and photos of what to look for, and tips on what to do when you find any problems.

P.S. There are 7 spots left in my upcoming online rug course. You can send a message to me thru my blog if you would like the information about that program in case you or your team would like some additional rug care training. Thank you for being a Rug Chick blog reader, and if there are any topics you want me to tackle, please let me know.
