Natural, Eco-Friendly Flooring

Our industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation towards environmentally conscious building and materials. As a society, we have become more aware of our impact on the Earth and recognize the need for earth friendly, energy efficient, and sustainable building and living. Many of us are making a commitment to reduce energy and water consumption, conserve natural resources, preserve habitats, and provide a safer, healthier environment within our homes and buildings, and throughout our community.

There are many factors to consider when purchasing earth friendly or “green” products. Some of these factors include growing, harvesting, and manufacturing practices, VOC content (volatile organic compounds), value, suitability, durability, and even transportation. We encourage you to ask any of our sales experts to show you flooring that will help you make the right choice for your flooring needs.

Eco-friendly, inexpensive and practical, linoleum is a great choice for families battling allergies and asthma.


Linoleum is an eco-friendly, inexpensive and practical flooring option. Linoleum flooring contains very little VOC content, since it is constructed from natural materials, such as linseed oil, pine resin, sawdust, cork dust, limestone and jute. Natural linoleum is biodegradable and compostable. It's a very popular choice for families turning to hard surface flooring to battle dust and other irritants that contribute to allergies and asthma.
Stylish and sustainable, cork is a great flooring choice with high sound and impact absorption.


Cork offers a stylish and sustainable flooring option with great sound and impact absorption. Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak tree, which grows in the forests of Mediterranean countries. The harvesting process causes no damage to the cork tree or the forest, making cork a renewable and environmentally friendly solution to your flooring needs.
Jute is a wonderful natural flooring option due to its fine, lustrous quality.


Jute is a fantastic natural flooring option due to its fine, lustrous quality. Its ability to be woven into many designs, such as herringbone and tweed, make it a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional carpets and rugs. Jute is the fibrous inner bark from the stalk of a giant tropical herb, named Cochorus, which grows in southern India and other hot, damp regions of Asia.
Seagrass is extremely soft and smooth underfoot making it an excellent choice for bedrooms.


The natural look of seagrass carpets and rugs is sought after by many designers and homeowners. Seagrass is extremely soft and smooth underfoot, so it feels great to walk on and is an excellent choice for bedrooms. It’s grown in Chinese paddies and marshes that are flooded with seawater, then it is harvested, sun dried, and woven into yarn. Seagrass is completely biodegradable, so it can be recycled without taking up space in a landfill for eternity.
Preferred by interior designers, sisal is stronger and more durable than other natural fibers.


Sisal’s textured look is a favorite of interior designers. Sisal is a natural fiber derived from the long, green leaves of the ‘agave sisalana’ cactus plant, which grows in semi-arid regions in Africa and Brazil. Sisal fibers are sustainably harvested by hand. Sisal is stronger and more durable than other natural fibers, which makes it a preferred material for carpet and rugs.
Natural, durable, and resilient, wool carpet is also very soft underfoot and great for sound dampening.

Wool Carpet

Wool is natural, durable and resilient, and wool carpet has a natural stain resisting property. The comfort of wool fiber is a major plus – it is a very soft fiber, so there’s a cushioned feeling as you walk on it. This softness, along with the loop design, creates a sound dampening effect. Non-toxic and non-allergenic, wool carpet is also biodegradable, so it can be recycled.
Durable, stain-resistant and extremely soft, silk carpet adds a touch of luxury to your home.

Silk Carpet

Natural, real silk is produced from the cocoon of the silk worm. To harvest the silk, the cocoons are heated, or boiled to kill the silk worms. Then they’re unwound into single fibers, which are then spun into thread or silk yarns. When dyed, silk fibers are saturated with rich colors, and have a distinctive, almost translucent luster.
