Natural fibre rugs
For a more organic look, a natural fibre rug is the best option. They usually have a flatter texture than wool or cotton rugs, and make the perfect addition to a cosy snug or study.
Natural fibre rugs are made using similar techniques to wool rugs. Generally, they are hand-woven by skilled craftsmen with years of experience.
Caring for your natural fibre rug:
Natural fibre rugs are perfect for indoor use. The material is very sensitive to changes in humidity and temperature, which may cause them to shrink or expand unevenly. Avoid placing them outside or in humid areas like your bathroom. Plus, keep them out of direct sunlight to stop the colour from fading.
Top tip: Rugs usually wear away fastest from the underside, so placing a rug pad underneath can hugely extend the life of your feature piece. They also help to secure it in place – particularly useful on hardwood floors where a smooth rug might create a slip hazard.
