Roll Out

We've all heard about warp and weft, hand-knotted, flat-woven, tufted and hooked, but what does that actually mean when choosing a rug? Here we breakdown the four main categories so you can cut the clutter and get floored.

Natural Fibre

rugs-reallife-cayman-4

Best for busy, klutz-free zones that aren’t likely to see spills.

rugs-reallife-cayman-3Super hardwearing, natural grass fibre rugs are environmentally friendly but also prone to staining. Silk, though, is uniquely soft and strong, but extremely costly and tricky to clean.


Cotton

Best for children’s rooms and other spill-prone areas.

rugs-reallife-cayman-2

rugs-reallife-cayman-1Very affordable and easy to clean, cotton is a biodegradable and colourful option, thanks to its ability to easily absorb dye, but it also wears quickly.


Hide

Best suited for tread-heavy areas that are away from wet and damp.

rugs-reallife-cayman-5

rugs-reallife-cayman-6Beautifully soft and stain-resistant, natural cowhides are very rugged and easy to clean. Likewise, sheepskins are delightfully cosy as well as being durable and naturally dirt-repellent.


Wool

Best for high-traffic zones.

rugs-oriental-reallife-cayman-8

rugs-oriental-reallife-cayman-7Exceptionally durable and soft, wool may be more costly but when you consider that it’s naturally stain-resistant and free of added chemicals, it’s a keeper.

Available in Cayman at Rugs Oriental.
