wool

Many people choose wool because of the durability of the product. Wool is a natural product with great resilience which gives it a very long life span. It is also easy to clean. Shedding is a natural feature of all spun products. All wool products will shed, with regular vacuuming this will decrease over time but never completely stop.

Heat set Polypropylene

Don’t let the price fool you. This is a very cost effective and incredibly hard wearing product.  Due to the nature of this fibre, you can achieve very strong vibrant colours. This product is non-allergenic and has antistatic properties

Viscose

Viscose is often used for its look and feel. It is often used in the pattern of a product to add a luxurious, soft, silkiness to highlight certain aspects of a rug. Rugs can also be made entirely out of viscose as well, which produces a very soft velvety texture.  Shedding is a natural feature of all spun products. Viscose will shed, with regular vacuuming this will decrease over time but never completely stop.

Machine made

This is the most durable and consistent make of product. With machine made products, it is possible to get an incredibly dense, highly detailed pile. The fiber thickness and the number of times the machine needle goes through the rug, will determine both the density and the detail of the finished product. The more needle points through a rug per square, the more durable the product is, increasing the life of the product.

Hand tufted

A product made in this way is hand crafted, so every piece is unique. The pile tends to be “chunkier” than machine made can very luxurious under foot.  Hand tufted products are made by tufting pieces of fiber through a canvas, and gluing on a backing. Please note: the backing of this product can never be wet. Tufts of fiber should never be aggressively pulled at.

Sizes

Size is not as important as one might think. You do need to get it right, if a rug is out of proportion for a room it can affect the aesthetics of the room,  BUT often there is more than one size solution for a space. Many different rooms may suit the rug extending from under the couch and out across the room, yet look different but just as good by leaving a boarder of floor around the rug and the furniture. There are no set rules in creating your living space. How you want it to look will reflect your own flare and style, but if you need a little help or suggestions our sales people are always willing to come out obligation free to your home to show you some ideas.  You can always take several options home from in-store on home approval to see what works best for you.
