Hemp – not just for your morning granola

Tightly loomed from smooth, durable, eco-friendly hemp, these braided flat-weave rugs from Restoration Hardware have a slightly nubby texture that will add interest to any room’s decor. 

Woven from hemp fiber, they will steadfastly weather foot traffic from parties and play dates alike.

Hemp is a tall, woody plant that grows rapidly in almost any climate and is sourced for its wood, seeds and fiber.

The rugs come in a variety of colors – shown from left to right are chocolate, mocha, honey and ivory.  Available in six sizes, they range in price from $165 for a runner to $995 for a 10-foot by 14-foot rectangular rug.
