One of our go-to rug types? Jute and natural fiber rugs! There’s seriously nothing like them when it comes to adding texture, character, and durability to your home—and all for a price that won’t break the bank! If you haven’t tapped into their neutral, lived-in look yet, we have a little advice: Authentic jute rugs made of natural materials are the only way to go! Keep scrolling to learn why and to find some dreamy inspo for bringing jute rugs into your space.
Jute rugs are a designer favorite.
Open any design magazine or take a quick scroll through Pinterest, and you’ll quickly discover that authentic jute and natural fiber rugs are a staple in every designer’s decorating arsenal. And for good reason! They have a high-end, versatile look, making them an easy go-to for just about any type of space.
They’re classic and never go out of style.
Another reason we love real jute rugs so much? Their look has a real staying power and is the opposite of trendy! Meaning if you roll out one in your home right now, it will feel just as current and fresh in your space for years to come.
They fit in with any style and color scheme.
Boho, classic, bright and colorful, totally tonal, or a look that’s all your own… jute rugs fit in with them all! Use them to add texture and depth to pared-back and neutral spaces, or to ground a more colorful room. Roll one out in a kids’ room, or try a style in your formal dining room. No matter where they live, you really can’t go wrong!
Jute rugs are made of authentic natural materials.
Because they’re made of real, plant-based materials, jute rugs are some of the most eco-friendly options out there. They’re woven from fibers of the jute plant—which you’ll also find in burlap and ropes! Similarly, sisal, another common natural material for rugs, is made from the durable fibers of the agave plant.
They have a beautiful texture.
Authentic jute rugs have a wonderfully tactile texture and lived-in quality that will add tons of character to your space. Our simple Chunky Loop rugs (one of our best-sellers!) bring in such a lovely textured look, but if you want something more, some of our styles have subtle patterns woven into them! A few favorites are our Handwoven Jute Jagged Chevron rug (shown above), Braided Treillage Tassel rug, Cross Braided Jute Trellis rug, and Handwoven Jute Birdseye Diamond rug.
Jute rugs are great for layering.
Layering rugs is one of our go-to moves for creating a space filled with texture and character. Try rolling out a jute rug underneath a patterned style, pair two jute rugs together for an extra-textured look (as seen above), use a large jute rug with a smaller style to help fill out a room… the options are endless!

They’re built to last.
So now you know authentic jute rugs are beautiful and perfect for adding that lived-in look to your space. But here’s even more great news: They’re durable and a great choice of high-traffic spaces! We consistently see them hold up beautifully in busy areas like in the entry, living room, and hallways.
Authentic jute rugs won’t break the bank.
The last (but certainly not least!) reason we love jute rugs so much: They come in an array of price points—and usually ones that are easy on the wallet. And because we have so many amazing deals here at Rugs USA, that means you’re getting even more bang for your buck when you choose an authentic jute rug. Wins all around!
