What Makes the Icon By Design Hand Woven Wool Rugs So Special?

A house isn’t a home without a cozy rug to unite the room. Whether it’s wiggling your bare toes in front of the fireplace after a long day, or making sure your decor looks like a spread from a magazine, a handmade rug that exudes craftsmanship and class is the perfect finishing touch.

Why Choose Hand Woven?

Artisanal rugs are more than just a floor covering. They make a statement about your home- and when that’s a thick and luxurious, hand-woven wool rug like this, that statement is cozy luxury. With tons of character and texture, and a range of beautiful colors used in the yarn for extra depth, you’ll fall in love again and again. 

With a neutral pallet, it fits seamlessly into any room, while the dense profile makes walking on it feel like a dream. Set off with a thick loop-textured weave for added durability and comfort, it’s an outstanding choice for any home

Is Wool Good For Rugs?

Icon By Design's Hand Woven Wool Rugs includes a durable cotton backing, giving a little extra grip and protection for your underlying floor.

Wool has been a staple of the carpeting industry for centuries, combining stain resistance, durability, and great feel. Less prone to static, even in a blend, it feels wonderful to touch and looks fantastic.

These rugs use robust polyester to maintain the luxury of wool, but give your new carpet added longevity, more consistent color, and add depth to the texture. They will suit any room, but is especially great for living rooms and spaces you spend a lot of time in.

The Glamorous Handmade Touch

We’re all unique, and our homes should be, too! When you buy a handmade rug from Icon By Design, you’re supporting craftspeople using time-trusted techniques directly, helping to keep a rich tradition alive. Plus, every piece has its own character, ensuring a true one-of-a-kind statement rug for your home.

Be Kind to the Earth

We all want to reduce the footprint we leave on the earth. Wool is a biodegradable fabric that’s ethical to produce and fully sustainable. It’s also built to last, so you can love your rug for decades to come. By breaking free of the ‘fast fashion’ interior decorating cycle and investing in sustainable pieces made to high standards, you can love your home and the planet too.

Caring for Your Icon By Design Hand Woven Wool Rug

While wool rugs are naturally durable, a little TLC can keep them looking brand new through the years to come. All our rugs can be treated with a fabric protector for added longevity and stain resistance. A thorough vacuuming will help keep them clean and free of damaging debris.

We also advise you to turn your rug at regular intervals. This helps distribute the heaviest wear, and ensure your rug ages well. Remember to keep soft furnishings out of direct sunlight whenever possible, to ensure UV rays don’t bleach the color with time.
