Flatweaves won’t lure as a lot filth as rugs with pile, and they’re easy to hoover or wipe down with a damp cloth. You may even machine-wash a few of them, such as cotton rag rugs. The carpet cleaner will lighten to a pale, gold color because it dries. Dirt doesn’t cling to jute’s hard fibers — it rests loosely on the weave. When properly cared for, jute rugs will final you a very long time.
