Nearly identical in appearance to our Rush House Original, we consider this rug its "twin." This product is made from handpicked strands of carefully dried water hyacinth woven into one-foot squares and sewn together by hand. Slightly thicker than our Rush House Original, the Monterey rug will not shed with time.
We offer 6 sizes, which can be easily joined to create a larger rug with our Twine & Needle Sew Kit. Our Set of 12 Squares allows further size alteration by the square-foot.
As simply as squares can be added, they may also be taken away. To make any rug smaller, snip and remove squares to reduce square footage— or replace them altogether should an unwelcome stain occur. With minimal effort, any rug shape or size is possible, including cut-outs around fireplace hearths, bookcases, or built-ins.
Intimidated by sewing it yourself? Don’t be. It’s easier than stitching a button onto a shirt. Position the rugs and squares within your room. Then, tie them together on site. These 2 short video clips demonstrate the process. Take a look!
Sample and replacement squares available here.
* This product is one-of-a-kind. Slight variations in color, weave, and size are expected. Woven by hand from coarse, organic seagrass, this product is imperfect with unique character not found in a machine-made counterpart.
The rug is not backed. We recommend our RUG PAD to extend the life of your rug.
