Synthetic fibers are increasingly common area rugs, for both their malleability and resistance to stains. The material can be crafted into any shape, color, and pattern.
Jute is a plant based fiber that can be strung into strong threads, making for a strong rug. Our example features a close up picture of the jute texture.
Cotton comprises the softest fibers you’re likely to find a rug in. Versatile, strong, and pliant, cotton rugs often make a great counterpoint to hardwood flooring, as in our example model.
Silk area gives a soft and luxurious touch to any piece of furniture it’s woven into. This particular rug features an intricate pattern in rectangle form
Acrylic is a plastic based material, often found in modern carpets and rugs. The fibers are stain resistant, strong, and can be dyed and patterned like cotton or wool.
Wool rugs are hand-woven with natural materials, while synthetic rugs are hand-tufted with the most durable but cost-effective materials. A wool rug can last for 50 years or more. Synthetic rugs usually have a lifespan of 3-5 years. Both wool area rugs and synthetic rugs are easy to clean.
