Natural Fiber Area Rugs

Natural Fiber Area Rugs


Hi, I’m Laurel, Laurel’s Originals, and I’m
going talk to you today about a project that we just completed and a custom canvas rug
that we completed for a home here in Costa Rica. We received a photo from the design
company, Casa del Pacifico. And in this photo we could see there was a palm border, and
in the center, it was a natural fiber rug. I asked the designer what did you want me
to put in the center of this rug, and she asked was there any way that I could replicate
this natural fiber look. Many of the designers here in Costa Rica like to use natural fiber
rugs, but when you’re in a country that rains 6 months out of the year and you’re dealing
with dust for 6 months, mud for the other 6 months, and mold, and add to that going
to the beach and having a beach home with lots of sand, then the natural fiber rug’s
a very difficult to take care of. What we do is we paint jute and we actually use it
as a stamp, and in natural colors and tones, and it really creates a beautiful look. Here I am painting the rug. I did go and visit
this home, it was on the southern coast of pacific coast of Costa Rica, I enjoy surfing,
so for me it was a great way to get to know the designer install the rug myself, catch
a few waves, visit some friends, and so she writes after her client came, “I wanted
to let you know the clients loved the rug. They were so pleased with the results of the
project and especially the rug. I wanted to thank you again for your efforts to create
such a wonderful piece to blend with the layout and colors as well as for delivering it for
us. I really appreciate it. I look forward to the next ones.” And I look forward to
it too. So for more videos on how to’s and how to create custom canvas rugs, please subscribe
