Fall is the perfect time of year to decorate your home with beautiful burlap. Most people know burlap as the fabric sacks are made of. Exported from India in the early 19th century, burlap was originally used for linoleum, rugs and carpets. In Jamaica, where burlap is called crocus, enslaved Africans repurposed old sacks into clothes to protect them from heat and dust. Nowadays, burlap is used throughout homes for beautiful and original decoration, creating a rustic feel. Most of the decoration can be easily made yourself.
