Guess we can all agree that while jute rugs look cute, round jute rugs look even cuter. Jute is making a comeback in a big way as a sustainable and eco friendly option to a lot of other materials such as cotton and plastic.
For instance, did you know that it only takes one-third the amount of water to grow jute than it does to grow the same amount of cotton?
Yes, jute is great if you want to save the planet. But now jute isn’t just about its utility, it has emerged as a material consumers buy for its aesthetics as well. You buy a round jute rug not just because it’s good for the environment, but also because it just looks downright gorgeous.
With that in mind, we present our curated list of the five most gorgeous round jute rugs that are sure to steal your heart at first sight.
1. Surya Round Jute Rug from Rugstudio
This gorgeous round jute rug from Rugstudio looks nothing short of a work of art. Woven out of jute from India, this rug comes in three sizes — 3 feet, 5 feet, and 8 feet. The patterns on the rug are intricate and sure to add a dash of oriental mystique to your room. What we love the most about this rug is the energy it seems to radiate, like a dazzling, dancing ball of flame, or a magnificent pagan god with a hundred splendid arms suddenly come to life after being asleep for a million years. And if you look at the circular patterns inside the rug long enough, you will find yourself getting drawn into it, like a falling star spiraling down into the milky way.
This rug is crafted from 100% jute and ships from the USA. It comes with a 1-year limited warranty and a 30-day hassle free return policy.
2. Asele Round Jute Rug from Urbanara
After the infectious energy of our previous rug, this one feels like a gust of ocean breeze on a sunny day at the beach. Calm, composed, dignified, and yet, breathtakingly beautiful. What sets this rug apart is the exceptionally high level of finishing on the jute fiber, so much so that it almost looks like cotton or wool from a distance. It is only if you come closer that you can see the distinctive strands of jute fiber. Made from 100% jute, this rug is also completely reversible, meaning you can use either side of the rug. The rug comes in a variety of sizes varying from 80x120cm to 290x390cm and ships from the UK.
3. Moroccan Handmade Round Jute Rug by Wayfair
A handmade rug woven out of jute and sisal, this beautiful piece will remind you of Morocco even if you’ve never been there. Fernweh, isn’t that what it’s called, that longing for places you’ve never been to. Well, that’s what this rug is about. This rug comes in only one size — 120×120 cm with a pile height of 2cm. It weighs 5 kg. For the price it is listed for, we’d say this one is an absolute steal.
4. Gray Loop Round Jute Rug from Maia Homes
First of the two dual-tone rugs on our list, this one has that azure calmness to it that comes from gazing at the blue sky on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Dual tone jute rugs are less common because they are harder to make. Despite the effort involved, this rug is not exorbitantly priced at all. It comes in a variety of sizes, starting from 2 feet by 2 feet and going all the way up to 12 feet by 12 feet. This rug is made in India and ships from the USA.
5. Round Jute Rug from Rugstudio
And finally, to finish off our list, something totally different from what you’re used to. While every other rug on our list so far was marked by a fundamental symmetry and evenness, this one is more like a magnificent explosion of patterns, designs and colors. If you look closely, this rug has not two but three color patterns woven into it, making it stand out. It comes in three sizes — 4 feet, 6 feet, and 8 feet. The rug is made in India, ships from the US, and comes with a 30-day, hassle-free returns policy.
