Fibre Types

Natural Fibres


This is the most commonly used natural fibre rug in production.  It is naturally flame retardant, durable, warm in winter and cool in summer. Wool takes on colour well and is naturally resilient to wear.  Wool rugs will shed fibres, this will reduce with time. This process will keep your rug looking fresh for many years. Wool is relatively easy to maintain and only needs regular vacuuming. It can be shampooed for a deeper clean.


A soft yet strong fibre, it holds dye which results in a brigher colouration. Cotton is a relatively easy care, low maintenance option for lighter constructions.


This is a popular eco-friendly and cost-effective fibre.  It is a relatively soft fibre, so not as durable as wool or synthetics but gives an organic look and is easy to style.  It can be combined with other fibres to add texture.  Jute is highly absorbent so should not be used in bathrooms or kitchens.


This is practical, durable and low-cost fibre, ideal for entrances and hallways as it is durable, rugged and easy to keep clean.

Synthetic Fibres


A super soft fibre that holds dye extremely well, allowing for a wide variety of colours from soft pastels to a bold primary palette. Acrylic is not as durable as other synthetic fibres so not ideally suited to high traffic areas.


A soft and shiny yarn that is highly versatile. It is used in a wide variety of styles from shaggy through to flatweaves. It is moisture stain and abrasion resistant so ideal for the busy areas of a home.


A great value synthetic that is at the forefront of yarn technology. It can be spun or dyed in many was to create thick shaggy rugs, bolder, more colourful rugs or fine classic looks. It is soft to the touch but is highly stain resistant, non-shedding and easy to clean.


A super soft, shiny and luxurious looking fibre, it is often used to add sheen and lustre to natural fibre rugs. It is most suited to low traffic areas of the home as it has low stain resistance and will absorb moisture.
