Sisal rugs are by far my favorite rugs. They are coarse in texture which reminds me of the sand, and they are very durable. Many sisal rugs are bound with cotton borders that come in all kinds of colors, and often they have a non-slip backing.

Seagrass rugs are also very durable and more dimensional than sisal rugs. They offer texture galore, as it is described in One King's Lane Guide to Natural Fiber Rugs. Natural seagrass rugs have a light sheen, and often start out with a light green hue that fades to khaki.
Jute rugs are the softest of the bunch, resembling wool. They are less durable than sisal and seagrass rugs because of their soft texture.
