Why is a Handmade Flatwoven Wool Rug so special?

If you’re looking for a handwoven statement rug that has subdued class and gentle style of its own, then our Iconic Flat-Woven Wool Rug might be just the carpet you’re looking for.

What Makes the Icon By Design Flat-Woven Wool Rug So Special?

We so rarely think about what’s going on under our feet in decor, yet an eye-catching rug can make or break the overall look of a room. A good rug should bring the room together, create demarcated spaces for each room’s role, and help you create a unified look you love.

Why Choose Flat-Woven?

Flat-weave, or flat woven, is a term used when rugs are created through warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads, as if on an old-time loom. That means you don’t get a perceivable pile to trap dust, allergens, and dander, so it’s a good choice for a hypoallergenic rug. It also makes the carpet particularly damage resistant.

This rug is created with an eye-catching diamond design in the weave, adding visual interest and extra style. If you know your rug styles, the Scandinavian rollakans are very recognisable flat-woven rugs.

Why Use a Wool Rug?

Wool has been an excellent choice for rugs and floor covering for millennia, but what makes it so popular? It’s tough and versatile, making a long-lasting, stain-resistant rug that won’t wear easily. However, it’s also soft and attractive to the touch. Pure-wool rugs are very soft, but as a natural product they can dye inconsistently. Wool rugs are often blended with another fabric to give even better durability, color, and texture.

The Handmade Touch

This minimalist rug was handcrafted in India by skilled craftspeople, and each rug has up to 6-months of lavish care invested in its creation. This means each piece is unique, while still being a reliably durable product.

The Natural Difference

Wool is incredibly eco-friendly, sustainable, and renewable. The yarns we use are also hand-dyed. These natural variations create intriguing texture and depth. Do be aware they can ‘shed’ a little in the first few months, but this will stop, especially if you care for your rug correctly.

The Icon By Design Flat-Woven Wool Rug is available in a neutral beige for sleek, clean lines that fit into most rooms easily.

Caring for Your Icon By Design Flat-Woven Wool Rug

A little care goes a long way! Turn your wool rug regularly to avoid wear patterns, and vacuum it at least once a week so dirt and debris doesn’t embed in the fibers. It’s best to keep it out of direct sunlight, as UV light will fade even the best dyes with time. You can treat this rug with a fabric protector for a longer lifespan.
