100% Wool RugsTime-tested and strong, wool has long been one of the most popular choices of area rug materials. Soft, thick & durable, these rugs stand up reliably to high-traffic areas like entryways and halls, as well as children and pets at play.
Acrylic RugsCreated as a more affordable alternative to natural fibers like wool, acrylic area rugs hold up well to most common types of wear, including sun damage and heavy foot traffic. Acrylic fiber is also more resistant to moisture and mildew, making it a great choice for bathroom rugs!
Cotton RugsAll-natural cotton fibers are common worldwide, and have been used in rugs for centuries. With a soft and lustrous feel, cotton’s breathable fibers are sensitive and designed for peak comfort. Many cotton rugs are also machine washable, which is uncommon.
Jute RugsMore & more, eco-conscious designers are turning to organic decor. Jute rugs are woven from natural plant fibers, making them not only soft, but also biodegradable and recyclable. Commonly neutral, earthy tones, they fit well into a variety of contemporary and rustic looks.
Leather RugsWhile commonly used in rustic and country-style spaces, sturdy leather rugs can add character to any room style! They offer a unique texture, sometimes blended with cotton for added softness and durability.
Natural Fiber RugsReferring to a wide array of fibers made from renewable materials, natural fiber rugs include rugs made from jute, sisal, seagrass and hemp. Get back to nature with the earthy neutrals and interesting textures of these rugs.
Nylon RugsNylon, another synthetic fiber, can be transformed into a practically limitless array of colors. Highly resistant to dirt and crumbs for easy cleaning, nylon is also strong and durable enough to stand up to heavy foot traffic while still maintaining its silky sheen.
PET RugsLooking for more ways to go green? PET rugs are made using polyester material created from recycled plastic bottles, making them durable enough for indoor or outdoor use. On top of that, they’re just as soft and plush as cotton!
Polyester RugsHighly durable, polyester rugs are resistant to fading and other common forms of rug wear and tear. Polyester rugs are also inexpensive, making them a popular choice on the more affordable end of the spectrum of rug materials.
Polypropylene RugsThese rugs are more affordable than other synthetic fibers like nylon. They are also colorfast, stain-resistant, and lightweight, making them easy to use and long-lasting. Because of their durability, they are also easy to clean because they stand up well to most chemicals.
Rayon RugsColorful, breathable rayon is a semi-synthetic rug fiber produced using natural resources pulled from wood or cotton. The first manufactured fiber in the world, Rayon dates back to the early 1800s. That it is still in use today for high-end rugs is a testament to its quality.
Silk RugsA natural fiber, painstakingly harvested from silkworms, silk has been sought after for centuries because of its fine, shimmering sheen and incredible softness. These rugs usually feature a higher knot count to signal quality & craftsmanship.
