What material should you use for the rugs in your children’s room?

The material used for the rugs in your kid’s room will depend on how that room is used. If the rug is for a playroom, for example, you’ll need a rug that is more resistant to use.

Wool is a durable material that can be cleaned and vacuumed quickly. One of the advantages of this material is that it naturally acts as an insulator, so that in summer it doesn’t add extra heat and in winter it helps to protect from cool flooring.

Polyester is a very soft, versatile, and resistant material. Since it is water repellant, small accident or spills won’t be any cause for concern. Even softer are our rugs woven with Tencel, a sustainable material that is silky smooth and adds a shine that you and the little ones will love.

We’ve created our collection of children’s rugs with the idea of incorporating fun and sensorially stimulating décor to the child’s environment. Some of our designs, like Globus, are made in 100% pure new wool in our hand-tufted cut pile technique, but these designs can also be made with loop pile to avoid fluff. The Borriquito rug is made in various textures such as wool, wool and silk, natural linen, jute and hemp, making it a sensory and especially tactile floor covering.

Buying a rug for kids is not something you do every day, but it’s important to choose carefully as it is somewhere that they’ll be able to play, while also being comfortable and cosy at home.

Washable or easy-to-clean children’s rugs

If you are looking for a children’s rug, one of the most important and recommended factors is that it can be easily cleaned, since children tend to make a bit of a mess! So, surely, you’re interested in a fabric that allows for stains to be easily cleaned, like wool or polyester.

In addition to being easy to clean, you should also consider the thickness of the rug. This is important, since the thicker it is, the better it will cushion the tumbles and falls of the little ones. We’d recommend a pile height of at least 12 mm.

Below you have some of our rugs that you can clean without any problem by following the appropriate maintenance instructions:

-          Globus
