Organic washable rugs : how are they made? How to choose the right piece for your interior design project?Materials and techniques — May 16.2023
Organic washable rugs are a perfect furnishing choice for those who have directed their interior design choices towards ecological and sustainable solutions. Being non-toxic, environmentally safe and compostable at the end of their useful life , organic washable rugs are perfect for anyone who wants to reduce the environmental impact of their lifestyle.
Because they are made from strong, natural fibres, these textiles retain their beauty for years, even if they are washed regularly with water.
What are the characteristics and advantages of organic washable rugs ?
Natural rugs are made using natural, biodegradable materials and processing techniques that guarantee a high degree of strength and durability of the finished product.
The choice of material to be used for this type of carpet is particularly important. In order to be certain that the carpet is safe to use and does not release allergens or toxic substances into the environment, it is essential to check that the fibres selected have been produced and processed according to the principles of organic cultivation and that they are sustainable materials.
Washable rugs made from natural fibres are therefore safe for allergy sufferers or those with respiratory problems. If you want to get rid of dust accumulated between the knots in the carpet or if there are stains on the surface of the product, the carpet can easily be washed in a washing machine or by hand. To clean the carpet, simply use a mixture of soap and water, making sure that the detergent chosen is suitable for the fibres from which the carpet is made.
In addition to being durable and safe models, organic washable rugs are also very versatile and practical. By being able to choose from many different models in terms of shape and colour, it is possible to find the perfect solution for every room in the house. In the case of special needs, related to the chosen furnishing style or the size of the rooms to be furnished, it is also possible to request the creation of custom-made rugs.
For which rooms in the home are organic washable rugs best suited?
A natural washable carpet can be placed in various rooms in the home, starting from the living room and ending in the bedroom, via the study, kitchen and even the bathroom.
This type of carpet is perfect whenever you want to create a cosy and environmentally friendly space. Since it is a washable product, it offers hygiene and safety in every room of the house.
Depending on the space you wish to furnish, the natural carpet can be used as a decorative element to make the atmosphere of the room warmer and more comfortable, or as a furnishing accessory to be used to avoid walking barefoot or to protect the floor from damage.
What styles and materials should be used for organic washable rugs ?
There are several materials to choose from to make natural wash rugs. The most commonly used yarns are jute, cotton, sisal and hemp. Jute is a strong and durable material that is particularly ideal for rugs suitable for everyday use and placed in heavily trafficked areas.
Cotton, being soft and comfortable to the touch, is perfect for rugs to be used in the bedroom. Sisal, on the other hand, is a rough and hardwearing material that is perfect for rugs to be used in high-traffic areas such as the entrance of the home and also suitable for outdoor areas of the home. Finally, hemp rugs can be considered for furnishing wet areas of the home, such as the kitchen and bathroom, rooms where the water-repellent properties and durability of these fibres can be best utilised.
The choice of carpet style depends on the furnishing style of the home. Organic washable rugs suit both contemporary and classic furnishings, and the design of the rugs can be oriental or contemporary. In addition, it is best to choose a knotted or woven carpet for the processing technique, as these processes ensure more compactness of the fibres and greater cleaning capacity.
Small format washable rugs can be easily cleaned in the washing machine by selecting a gentle programme that does not damage the fibres. If you have chosen to furnish with large format rugs, on the other hand, you can use a professional washing service. Companies that specialise in cleaning rugs can opt for water or dry cleaning. The assessment is made taking into account both the characteristics of the fibres and the level of cleanliness of the product.
