linoleum
January 19

Invented in England in the mid 19th Century, linoleum is a type of floor covering produced from a mixture natural materials: linseed oil, cork, wood flour, pine rosin, ground limestone, and mineral pigments. Rolled and bonded to a jute backing under pressure, linoleum is often mistakenly confused with sheet vinyl and other synthetic flooring. It is a purely natural product however, and has quickly become the alternative choice of Earth-friendly 'Green' design.
