Small heart shaped jute area rug, perfect for Valentine's Day decor. Or anywhere you'd like a touch of both the romantic and the primitive. This is crocheted with a double strand of eco friendly jute twine, making it quite soft. It would make a nice bed for a small pet. It's small enough to fit any space, measuring roughly 21" x 26". You could even use it as a dramatic centerpiece mat on a large table, perhaps for a wedding prop?
Care and Feeding: Your handmade area rug can be placed indoors or outdoors, and makes a lovely porch accent. Remember that this is a natural fiber. Exposure to strong sun or weather will reduce lifespan. Simply hose off for cleaning, reshape, and allow to air dry. Do not hang. Take care of it and you will have a beautiful and unique rug for a very long time. Do not machine wash or dry.
If your new rug is destined for a smooth floor in a traffic area, you may wish to place a nonskid pad under it. This is a natural fiber, and it will move around.
Do note that jute has a natural "burlap" scent. This is normal, and will fade in time.
About Jute: Jute is a strong natural fiber, the same material used to make burlap cloth. Unlike cotton, jute does not require heavy pesticides or fertilizing. It also flourishes nicely on natural rainfall. It is completely sustainable, growing in only 4-6 months. The inner core of the plant can even replace most of the world's wood needs, greatly reducing reliability on rainforests for wood. It is by far the most environmentally friendly fiber, and is 100% biodegradable, recyclable, and hypoallergenic.
I created this rug with loving intent, and I hope you and your family will enjoy using and displaying it as much as I enjoyed making it for you. :-)
