Our organic cotton throw rugs are soft, cozy, and completely chemical and pesticide free.

Each one is hand made from 100% Handpicked Organic Cotton, without the use of pesticides or chemicals throughout the entire production process.

Grown exclusively in Egypt, the products reflect the extremely soft and durable features that Egyptian cotton is known for.

Since these rugs are made from fabric remnants each one is unique.

Natural creamy beige dominates each piece, however, you can expect occasional splashes of color or variations in shade.

The benefits of organic cotton are many, both for you and the Planet. The modern non-organic industrial cotton plant has been genetically engineered to the point where it is no longer a natural fiber, but rather a plant that is designed to withstand the strains of the chemical pesticides sprayed on it.

Think about that the next time you buy non-organic cotton.

Our 100% chemical free organic cotton, on the other hand, offers you an alternative way to enjoy the softness of this traditional fabric without doing any harm.

Easy to wash and line dry, you will enjoy these rugs for years.

Each rug is about 1/4" thick, with a hand-braided look and feel.

Sold individually.

Available in two sizes, regular and large.

Please choose the rug you need from the drop down menu above the product description.

If the rug you want is not shown above we are temporarily out of stock, please check back soon.

Like so many green companies, Under the Nile began with a family's search for safer alternatives for their children.

Concerned about the additives and chemicals found in most children's clothing, Janice and Mohamed Masoud set out to create a line of products that were stylish, functional, and safe.

The Masoud's have since combined their love of family and the Planet to establish a thriving company that is to be admired.

Here are their own words

"Trough cultivating organic cotton, we seek to cultivate the community that grows it. We have a passion to fight poverty and to offer the Egyptian people a better way of life - through work, vocational and educational training, and by providing them health care. We seek to help the environment by planting and producing high quality cotton without the use of harmful pesticides and insecticides."

Under the Nile is certified to the Global Organic Textile Standards.

The company has passed ATSM F963-03 government standards for testing and meets all CSPA requirements.

Product Features:

100% hemp.

Handmade in the USA.

From the strongest rope to the finest lace, hemp is the earth's most versatile fiber.

Hemp is also Nature's longest fiber, which means garments last longer than those made with other fabrics.

Hemp is naturally resistant to mildew and UV light. Hemp sometimes feels a little rough at first, but it becomes softer every time you wash it as the fibers relax.

Hemp is extremely efficient from an environmental perspective. Hemp naturally suppresses weeds and enriches the soil it is grown in with nitrogen deposits.

Hemp is grown without herbicides or pesticides and pound for pound hemp plants produce 250% more fiber than cotton. By contrast, non-organic industrial cotton uses more water and more pesticides than any other commercial crop, leaving the soil depleted.

In fact, over one quarter of all agricultural chemicals in the USA are used to grow cotton. The toxic runoff from these chemicals ultimately find their way into our waterways. The modern non-organic industrial cotton plant has been genetically engineered to the point where it is no longer a natural fiber, but rather a plant that is designed to withstand the strains of the chemical pesticides sprayed on it.

Think about that the next time you buy non-organic cotton.

For those of you who are concerned about hemp's unfounded reputation as a drug, rest assured you have nothing to worry about. Neither you or your kids will get high using hemp products. Unlike marijuana, hemp contains only minute (less than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. In addition, hemp possesses a high percentage of the compound cannabidiol (CBD), which has been shown to block the effects of THC. For these reasons, many botanists have dubbed industrial hemp "anti-marijuana."
