Modern rugs are available in a variety of fibres and constructions.
Wool is one of the oldest fibres used in rug making and prevails in high end qualities today. The fibre is naturally fire retardant and a good quality wool will last for many years in heavy traffic areas.
Modern wool rugs are available in hand knotted rugs, which is generally considered the very best weaving technique. Handmade rugs where the quality of wool can vary greatly depending on the source, using tufted or loomed in India. Machine woven rugs are usually made from good quality wool, New Zealand worsted yarns are preferred for a finer, soft finish.
Wool can also be blended with other fibres to create texture, lustre, and help performance. Contact us to find out more about choosing a modern wool rug.
Manmade fibres are used extensively today in rug production and quality varies greatly. Some fibres are excellent for dyeing, easy to clean and very resilient but not so good on appearance retention.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a rug for your home.
What type of flooring will your rug be on?
Some rugs lend themselves to different types of floorcoverings.
We would not recommend a chenille rug on top of a carpet with a soft underlay as the rug will not lay properly. However, chenille rugs are ideal for use on hard flooring.
How much wear will the rug receive?
A bedroom rug will generally get less wear than a living room or dining room rug.
Is spills and accidents likely?
Spillage or accidents with pets may be an issue, especially in Living room and Dining Room locations
How will the rug be maintained?
Will the rug be vacuumed regularly?
How much is your budget?
Your budget will ultimately determine the type and fibre content of your ideal rug.
A high-quality manmade fibre rug will outperform a low-grade handmade wool rug at the same price.
All these factors will have a bearing on the type and fibre we would recommend.
