Cork flooring is warm, quiet and soft. It has seen increasing popularity thanks to its stylish appearance and sensation of walking on air; it is 50% air! Made from the harvested bark of the cork oak tree; grown in the forests of the Mediterranean. The trees are not cut down to make the flooring and the bark is renewable making it environmentally friendly.
This hardest-wearing natural flooring material is extracted from the Agave Sisalna, which grows in abundant supply in South America and East Africa. The dense dark green leaves are hand-picked before being crushed to get the fibre known as Sisal. These fibres are spun and woven into flooring and can be dyed almost any colour. Lasting around eight years, Sisal can be fitted in rooms with heavy usage but is not suitable for rooms with moisture.
Jute has a tweed-like appearance and is soft underfoot. It comes from the stalks of the tiliasceae plants grown in India. The stems of these plants are pounded with wooden mallets resulting in fibres that are spun into beautiful yarn. These soft fibres are suited for floors with lighter use such as bedrooms or relaxing rooms.
Seagrass grows in the tropical climates of China and Vietnam on the banks of rivers and in coastal meadows. The grass crop is flooded by seawater during its growing cycle; it is then cropped by hand and spun into cords before being woven into flooring. It is naturally strong and unlike Coir or Sisal Seagrass cannot be bleached, making it ideal for all domestic areas, as it cannot fade in colour from sunlight. It is not suitable for bathrooms due to moisture.
A durable material making it ideal for rooms with regular footfall. You can expect up to seven years of usage from this resilient flooring material. Originating from India it is made from the husks of coconuts which are removed, cleansed, softened by fresh water and spun into Coir fibre. We would advise on avoiding areas of high sunlight as Coir is a bleached product, meaning it can lose its original colour and fade.
Bamboo is a sturdy flooring material made from the bamboo plant. Grown mainly in China and Asia many people choose Bamboo for its durability.
These fast-growing plants are harvested every five to six years, making this an environmentally alternative to wood flooring, where trees that are decades old are cut down. Bamboo provides a sustainable option for those who want a wood floor.
Natural linoleum is one of greenest floors on the market. It’s bio-based, highly durable, non-toxic, anti-microbial and easy to maintain. Choose from more than 100 designer colours and patterns.
Marmoleum® is a flooring product used in residential and commercial applications. It is produced by England’s Forbo Flooring Company, and is similar to linoleum flooring. Marmoleum® is made from a proprietary blend of wood flour, jute, rosin, and linseed oil. This organic mix is then pressed together and dried to produce sheets or tiles.
Though this product has been on the market for over a century, it is becoming more popular due to the growth of the green building movement over the past several decades.
