Linoleum is manufactured from renewable materials, including linseed oil and tree resins, then mounted on a jute or canvas backing. Sometimes confused with vinyl, linoleum is all natural, as opposed to vinyl, which is synthetic.
Linoleum has come a long way since its inception. You’ll find linoleum in many different colors and patterns; the color goes all the way through to the backing, so scratches don’t readily show. It’s easy to maintain with water and a mild cleaner and it’s extremely durable.
