Mark D. Sikes Jute Rug - Harwich Natural


Renowned American interior designer Mark D. Sikes has collaborated with Dash & Albert to launch a new range of gorgeous designer rugs.

The various designs were derived from traditional East Coast stripes, classic checks and West Coast-inspired ikats.

This handmade rug collection includes a range of rugs in wool, jute, and woven cotton styles.

There is nothing better equipped to stand the test of time and to remain a long-lasting item in your home than a jute rug.

A jute rug is one of those classic items that’s always in style and is so reflective of both French and Hamptons aesthetics. You can just feel coastal elegance with a jute rug, thanks to its natural construction and deeply textured feel. 

Our Jute rugs from Dash & Albert feature not only the stunning jute texture, but they’re also eco-friendly, and well-woven. You can envision your family and friends enjoying the look and feel of a jute rug beneath their feet. They manage to be earthy yet elegant, and organically stylish.

All Dash & Albert rugs are individually handmade and hand woven items and as such they are subject to the following variations, which are not considered faults or defects.

Size: being a handmade product, the size can vary by +/-3% from the size ordered.

Colour: the products are made primarily from natural and undyed fibres. Every effort is made to ensure there is minimal colour variation however some variation can be expected.

Fading: placing rugs in direct and continuous sunlight will cause them to fade. Charcoal colour products will fade in natural light and/or sunlight.

Some colour may transfer on light coloured surfaces. Rotate your rug to minimize damage caused by natural light.

Design & Construction: minor variations may be evident, which is due to the fact that the product is a handmade item including line/weave thickness.

Shading: due to changes in pile and weave direction shading may occur and is a natural characteristic of carpets and rugs.

Shedding: this can occur in handmade rugs that are made from all natural fibres. Natural fibre rugs will initially shed loose fibres, this is a normal process. The removal of any loose fibres will be hastened by regular vacuuming using a good quality upright vacuum cleaner.

Pilling: this can occur due to traffic, moving of furniture, vacuuming or other mechanical agitation. This can be trimmed with scissors.

Pop ups: due to the type of weaving, there may be short fibres popping up while the rug settles. Do not pull the pop up. The pop up(s) can be trimmed or pushed through.

What routine care and maintenance is required for a Dash & Albert Jute Outdoor rug? 

Regular vacuuming and the occasional gentle shake should keep your rug in shipshape condition. When vacuuming, always use the standard floor head; never use the rotating brush. Dry spots can be removed by scraping carefully towards the middle of the spot. Do not rub wet spots; simply absorb with paper towels. Professional cleaning is recommended when needed. Due to the handmade quality of our rugs, they may vary slightly in size and/or colour.
