What is the best material for an Entryway Rug?

Sisal rugs are one type of rug to consider when looking for a new rug to add to your entryway.

Sisal is a stiff fiber constructed from the agave leaves (yes, the same source for tequila). Sisal Rugs are durable, natural, and sustainable.

They are low maintenance, absorb dust and moist and warm up any environment. The natural hue is a creamy white to wheat, tan, beige color which can then be dyed.

Sisal is one of the strongest and most durable natural fibers, more so than other fibrous materials like jute, so sisal rugs are perfect be used in high traffic areas such as entryways, steps and hallways.

Because sisal is a natural fiber carpeting material, it is non-toxic and good for people with allergies and asthma. Unlike synthetic materials like nylon it won’t off-gas volatile organic compounds, so sisal rugs will contribute to the air quality of your home.

Sisal is super absorbent, in fact that it can act as a natural humidifier for your home, meaning it’ll stay cool on hot days.


There is a premium type of Sisal called Fique, which is shinier and more flexible than regular sisal. This allows the artisans to have more freedom in designing and blending them with other materials such as metal. Some luxury rugs combine even fique with cooper.
