DMI Seagrass Carpeting & Rugs
DMI Seagrass is great for those who are looking for durable, sustainable, nontoxic alternative to synthetic carpet and rugs! Renewable, biodegradable, sound absorbent. Durable, soft underfoot, anti-static.
DMI Seagrass is a perennial grass grown and harvested annually from paddy fields that are flooded with sea water as the crop grows. The crop is not a food source and is used for hand weaving of mats and baskets plus twisted yarns for export for use in flooring and furniture. The 100% natural yarn contains no dyes, insecticides or other chemicals. The latex backing that is applied to seagrass floor coverings is comprised primarily of natural rubber and natural fillers.
Slightly waxy by nature, it is naturally stain resistant and easy to care for. Suitable for indoor, climate controlled areas. Not suitable for areas that are subject to high moisture conditions. Seagrass is woven from hand twisted undyed blades of grass. There will always be sprouts, color and thickness variations throughout. These are inherent in woven seagrass the same way knots are inherent in wood.
As a wall to wall or area floor covering, DMI Seagrass provides an option that is not only natural from the start, but one that is highly stain and soil resistant plus strong and durable. It’s clean woven finish creates the perfect backdrop for design.
THE COMPANY AT A GLANCE
Design Materials, Inc. floor coverings originate from a diverse group of manufacturers and the various growers and fiber producers that support them. DMI’s exotic carpets are made from all-natural fibers: sheep and alpaca wool, mountain and sea grass, sisal, and coir from the coconut. Rugs are available in multiple sizes, styles, and textures, including wall-to-wall carpets and area rugs with customizable cloth bindings. Specially-designed Sisal cleaner and sealant available.
“Little notice was given to sisal and coir carpets and rugs within the carpet and residential flooring marketplace in 1979, but they weren’t entirely unknown. Woven natural plant fiber products, when sought after, were difficult to source in a timely manner and product quality was inconsistent.
With characteristic energy and faith, from its founding owners, the company began to make headway changing old perceptions along the way. Interest grew in using natural fiber carpets and rugs when consistent product quality was realized. Trade grew and markets expanded as new partners joined the company, all taking an active personal interest in the growing business.
After more than thirty years of business growth, Design Materials Inc operates on national and international level. DMI products can now be found at independent suppliers throughout the U.S., while international partnership companies of DMI operate their distribution operations in Canada and The Netherlands.”
