We are best known for pure sisal carpets and rugs.  However, our portfolio extends well beyond this silken fibre.  Carpets in sisal & wool, pure wool, coir, coir & sisal, paper, paper & sisal, paper & wool and cotton blends are also available, along with compatible bindings.

It seems to us that in this modern age there is a welcome return to nature and natural fibres.  Our skilled weavers come up with more and more beautiful and interesting products every year and show no sign of slowing down so please keep in touch and watch the developments.

Sisal with Wool

The lustre and texture of sisal snuggles up to the warmth of fine New Zealand wool.  When people think of wool they think of softness.  In this blend you have the softness of wool overlaying the strength and visual texture of woven sisal for an unmatched combination of beauty and durability.

Seagrass Squares

Seagrass squares were the first floor covering for many baby boomers, and where our business began.  The grasses are twisted and woven into chunky textured squares which are then sewn together into a durable and economical floor covering that has been consistently popular for fifty years.  Seagrass starts out with a green tinge but soon becomes a light brown shade, a hue that hides a million sins.  Seagrass squares can be purchased by the row or by the bale.

Wool

Warm and soft, strong and spill resistant, natural and sustainable.  It’s hard to argue against the qualities of wool and our weavers use only the best, which means 100% New Zealand wool.  We offer it woven in tight, hard wearing loops or elegantly mixed with Sisal, Paper or Jute, all of which will bring beautiful textures to your home.

Pure Sisal

Surely the king of natural fibres?  With its beautiful lustre and texture, sisal can be woven to have suitable for the most luxurious of bedrooms.  It can also be used to polish stainless steel and be spun to form ropes strong enough to tie up an ocean liner.

The best pure sisal yarn starts life in the fronds of the agave sisalana plant grown in East Africa and South America.  It ends up at our showrooms in many different hues from creamy natural white through golds and greys to chocolates and even high-tech black.  The fineness of pure sisal fibre allows it to be spun in many different gauges yielding a wonderful variety of exciting geometric textures, but always with great strength and durability.

Coir

No stranger to the floors of the late Queen Mother at (Balmoral Castle) coir matting is made by spinning the processed fibres of the outer husk of the coconut.  Husk collection takes place in the romantic backwaters of Kerala in the south of India – a region made famous by Arundhati Roy’s acclaimed novel, The God of Small Things.  Richly textured because of its thicker fibre and yarn, coir comes in either a cocoa/cinnamon (natural) yarn or a buttery creamy (bleached) yarn or a combination of both, in herringbone and ribbed weaves.  The simplicity of this product allows it to be the textural stage for many an antique or perhaps an oriental rug.  

Coir is a more coarse fibre than sisal but is similarly anti-static while also being rot resistant.  Coir offers good insulation and sound deadening properties.
