WHICH RUG FIBERS SUITS YOUR HOME THE MOST?
When you decide to buy a new rug for your home décor, it is necessary to consider how your rug will look, feel and how durable it is. These all things depend upon the type of fibers that are used to weave an “Antique Rug“. In this blog post, we have mentioned some of the natural rug fibers which will help you to make your mind about what would be a best pick for your home.
Jute Rugs: Jute is the natural fiber commonly found in south-east Asia and is amazing for layering small patterned rugs for high traffic area houses. These fibers are coarse and you might not feel soft under your feet but retain moisture well so have a major drawback that they get easily stained. They are available in flat weave so they are less likely to trap allergens. The jute rugs are strong and durable, therefore, can bear most of the wear and tear.
Wool Rugs: It is the most popular rug material made from sheep fleece and is most durable and comfortable. They will also survive in high foot traffic and an ideal choice for living rooms due to their cushioning. Wool rugs absorb moisture well, so they are not recommended for high humidity regions. Moreover, shedding should also be expected from wool which reduces over time.
As wool fibers are the softest, hence offers great comfort underfoot. The wool rugs are easy to clean as stains get easily removed and durable for long-term use.
Cotton Rugs: As all know, cotton fibers are spunned from cotton plants and are commonly used for flat-weave rugs and ideal choice for medium- traffic area houses. However, they don’t appear as luxurious as other “Handmade Rugs“ but they are soft alternative to jute and wool rugs. They are more affordable and durable as well as able to be machine washed. The other unique benefits of cotton rugs are, they are highly breathable, static-resistant as well as hypoallergenic.
Silk Rugs: Silk is the natural fiber made from a particular type of silkworm. It is used to make highly beautiful and antique rug pieces which are perfect for low-traffic areas such as bedrooms. Being highly crushable, they are not suitable for heavy foot traffic spaces and needs professional cleaning to avoid any wear and tear. The silk rugs have beautiful appearance with an inimitable luxurious feel due to smooth fibers and feel super soft under your foot.
