What is a Handmade Cross Loop Wool Rug?

What Makes the Icon By Design Cross Loop Wool Rug So Special?

Eye-catching rugs help finish the look of a room, creating a cozy space that feels like home. Loop wool rugs are especially great in rooms where you want a warm, luxurious feel, but can easily be adapted to suit any space

What is a Cross Loop Rug?

Cross loop pile rugs, also called Berber rugs, have a distinctive hand-knotted finish that brings gorgeous looks, tempting texture, and a resilient, durable design to the table that still feels great underfoot.

This makes them highly adaptable to any area of the home, but especially great anywhere where you may walk barefooted. If you opt for a low, densely woven loop, you ensure long-term durability without sacrificing the luxurious look. This rug is specifically designed to hold up to foot traffic well, so use it where you please!

Why Buy a Wool Rug?

The Icon By Design Cross Loop Wool Rug is made of pure wool, so you’ll feel the difference the second you touch it.

Mankind has used wool for rugs since time immemorial, because it’s such a fantastic choice. Gentle and soft, yet resilient and stain-proof, it lasts for decades when cared for correctly. With no artificial fibers to create static, fantastic texture, and the gorgeous variation created when you dye natural fiber, this is the gift that keeps on giving beautiful looks to your home.

Handmade for Extra Beauty

Icon By Design brings you this spectacular statement rug direct from the looms of Indian craftsmen. Made with love, care, and attention to detail, it can take up to 6-months to make each piece. So you know you’re receiving only the very best.

The Sustainable Choice

Alongside its unique good looks, this is an eco-friendly rug made with sustainable fabric choices. Not only is wool a robust material, but it’s all-natural and biodegradable too. So if you’re looking to green up your home with quality choices that look great for decades to come, look no further!


Caring for Your Icon By Design Cross Loop Wool Rug

Of course, even the most resilient rug needs a little TLC to keep it looking fresh and sparkling. Regular vacuuming will prevent debris and dirt getting caught in the loops, and keep your home environment clean and fresh too. You can also use a fabric protector on this rug if you choose. 

Remember to rotate your rugs regularly to ensure they wear evenly. As this is a darker natural rug, it's best used away from direct sunlight, which can cause sun bleaching over time. Again, regular rotation helps avoid this in sunnier spaces.
