The Ivy House is all about creating healthy homes with natural fibres that’ll last the distance. When you bring natural, handmade texture into your home, you add both beauty and well-being benefits. 

We spend so much time indoors, the materials around us can have profound effects on our health. One of the easiest ways to detox an interior is to introduce organic fibres, which are inherently beautiful and offer a multitude of benefits for our wellbeing.

Synthetic or chemically treated rugs give off VOCs, a harmful compound that can cause skin irritations, headaches, nausea and dizziness. Instead, opt for eco-friendly jute, wool and linen which shrug off dirt, dust and bacteria – perfect for families with asthma, allergies or pets.

Protect your home sanctuary with furnishings in sustainable fibres that are fire resistant. Jute and wool have excellent thermal properties – they are slow to catch and spread flames, won't melt and will extinguish themselves, making them the safest fibres for your loved ones.

Natural rugs are easy to maintain with a regular vacuum and spot clean. Jute is extremely durable and will wear in not out, while wool has a protective layer to repel spills, giving you time to mop them up. Premium materials and quality craftsmanship ensure product with a long life span that is a pleasure to live with.
