As the name implies, sea grass carpet is indeed a grass and sea water does play a part in its production. It is grown in China in paddy fields and at a certain point during the growing season, the fields are flooded with sea water. After harvesting and drying, the sea grass is spun into strong yarn, suitable for weaving. Its impermeability makes it hard to dye by conventional techniques so most products come in their original state.
As with all plant fiber floor coverings, there are natural inconsistencies in color and occasionally in the spinning and weaving, but these tend to add rather than distract from it’s overall charm. Suitable for any area in your home. Except Kitchen and Bathroom. Can be stuck directly tot he floor. If you require a little more comfort it can be fitted onto an underlay. The underlay must be stuck to the floor and then the carpet stuck fully to the underlay.
