Choosing a Rug

Dimes against rug width

We make a wide range of rugs: Natural Wool or Eco Cotton, some woven flat, others with loops.

Here are some pointers to find the rug that’s right for you.

COST


Our least expensive rugs are our Eco Cotton Flatweave ones. They are available in dozens of patterns and colors. The least expensive of these are the solid ones and the striped ones.

COMFORT


If you want to play or nap on your rug, the best ones to look at are our Loom Hooked ones. Our Eco Cotton Loom Hooked and our Wool Loom Hooked are springy and soft and wonderful. The wool ones feel softer under foot and are perfect for adult bedrooms and living rooms. The cotton ones are preferred by kids for crawling and play. Their skin is more tender and the smooth cotton fiber feels better to them. Whether you choose cotton or wool, you couldn’t choose a more comfortable rug.

COLOR


If you want neutral natural colors, any of our rug types will be fine. If you want other colors (green, blue, red, etc.), you will want to look at our Eco Cotton Rugs.

WASHABILITY


All of our Flatweave Eco Cotton rugs are machine washable. They wash beautifully, and can be tumble dried. None of our other rugs can be machine washed.

THICKNESS


Our thinnest rugs are our Flatweave Eco Cotton. and our Flatweave Wool. Next thickest are our Thick Weave Wool. The thickest are our Loom Hooked Eco Cotton and our Loom Hooked Wool. The latter is slightly thicker.

DURABILITY


All of our rugs are durable and built to last. We don’t use any latex, which can crack and crumble over time. We don’t use dyes, which can fade or run.

PET FRIENDLINESS


All of our rugs love pets, and the feeling is mutual, but if yours have long nails and like to use them, you should go for our flatweave rugs, the Eco Cotton Solids, the Eco Cotton Stripes, or the Thick Weave Wool. The tight weave and lack of loops make it harder for their nails to damage the rug.

ECO-FRIENDLINESS


All of our rugs are eco-friendly, and are made without the use of chemicals, dyes, or latex, using sustainable materials. The Eco Cotton ones are more eco-friendly, as they use not only sustainable materials, but materials that could otherwise have ended up in landfills.

NON-TOXICITY


All of our rugs are non-toxic. We make them without chemicals, dyes, or latex, and we don’t spray or treat them afterwards. Many people inquire as to whether our rugs are sprayed by Indian customs upon departure. They are not. We only import rugs, so our containers are not sprayed with chemicals, as is required if wood products are in the same container. Because we use recycled fibers in our Eco Cotton rugs, there is a polyester component and a very small presence of other fibers. Fortunately, any off-gassing from these fibers has long since transpired, and the act of reducing to fiber form does not reconstitute the fiber and open it up to further off-gassing.
That said, if you feel that you want a truly 100% chemical-free product, our natural undyed wool rugs are the answer.
