Sisal Stair Runners
Sisal offers a great choice to the designer or home owner who wants a natural product with a crisp uniform color and a natural luster. Perfect finish is achieved because of its unique ability to take dies evenly. This uniformity, combined with the natural weave and exudes class.
Many people enjoy the sensory experience of walking on this flooring and the amazing sound-deadening qualities shares with most natural weaves . For this reason, it is not only used in homes but also often in sound studios. Sisal can be effectively used on staircases as a stair runner to deaden the footfall on stairs from neighbors or family members .

Sisal shares the environmentally friendly credentials of its sister natural products so your home can look great while you feel great about your choice too !
Jute Stair Runners
Designers and home owners choose jute because of its relative softness as natural flooring. Jute has a very neutral tone and mixes with almost any design layout in a restful and non-invasive way .
Jute is durable and has a similar aesthetic quality to carpet . Like a carpet , it should be supported with good underlay and stain protection spray to extend the life. Go with Intec – it’s the only protection that’s environmentally friendly.
The environmental qualities of jute as a material are breath-taking . Durability means long life. When eventually discarded, it is 100% biodegradable and when it decomposes puts valuable nutrients back into the soil. Jute plants when grown (and they do so prolifically), consume significantly more CO2 than trees. That’s what you call doing your bit for the environment.
