Answer: a floor covering that fears humidity.

Coming from a subtropical cactus, the agave, sisal is a braided vegetable fiber then stuck on a layer of latex, felt or cotton, to transform into a natural and trendy floor covering. Its natural color is creamy white, but sisal can be tinted, unlike other vegetable fiber coverings. Sisal fears stains and water. It is therefore not recommended to place it in damp rooms (kitchen, bathroom) or in high traffic. It must also be treated preventively under penalty of absorbing moisture. In addition, a flat woven floor covering will be more resistant than a loop weave. The sisal can be mixed with wool, which will give it a particularly soft appearance. Its maintenance is easy and is done dry, with the vacuum cleaner.
