Materials & Craftsmanship:

This diligently hand-tufted area rug is made of 100% pure lamb’s wool. Wool is a natural material, representing a healthy choice that is environmentally friendly with a long list of benefits. The pile of this wool rug is hygienic and non-allergenic, as the natural pile also deters the growth of bacteria and dust mites. It represents a great choice for asthma sufferers due to its natural filtering ability. The rug feels soft under the foot while remaining wear-resistant and long-lasting. With proper maintenance tailored to its needs, this rug can last over 75 years. Homeowners benefit from an extra grip which is important for balance, good posture, and accident prevention. Moreover, wool rugs are flame resistant. Cleaning is also easier due to a protective layer that pushes dirt up and resists staining. In fact, it will trap dirt and dust until it is vacuumed. A wool rug is also a great option for adding the look and feel of luxury to any space, as wool in itself is a luxurious material.

Tufted Carpets

Tufted carpets have a reputation for being sturdy and wearing well over long periods of time. Tufts are essentially clusters of yarn fibres that are drawn through some sort of medium, such as a natural fabric or a synthetic base. The tufts project from the surface of the base, and may be configured as a loop or cut strands. In other words, these carpets have their pile injected into a backing material, which is itself then bonded to a secondary backing comprising a woven hessian weave or a man made alternative to provide stability. This is the most common method of manufacturing of domestic carpets for floor covering purposes in the world and they are particularly popular in North America. Tufted carpets tend to absorb sound. Most of these carpets are tufted with acrylic or a mix of acrylic and wool. However, there are hand tufted carpets in the world market made of pure wool only. Most hand tufted carpets today are made in Belgium, China and India.
