I am a huge fan of large area rugs, without them spaces just don’t feel complete. Over the years I have purchased A LOT of different area rugs from all over the inter webs. In my house they certainly gets put to test. Over the last 2 years though, I feel like I have become devoted to one singular brand and type of rug.
What’s so great about Loloi Rugs?
My favorite part about these rugs is that Loloi uses patterns from ancient heirloom rugs. I could never have a precious rug in our home with kids, a husband, and a dog but a lot of the newer prints on rugs come across a little cheesy and not as grounding as a truly beautiful timeless pattern. What can I say? They just don’t make rugs like they used to. The patterns from Loloi have a lot of depth, and texture to them which makes quite a statement from the minute you roll them out in your space. The patterns look intricately woven, but are actually printed on your rug which keeps the cost way way down.
What are they made of?
These rugs are made of polypropylene. Which is a man made fiber that is basically a kind of plastic. But don’t worry these rugs are silky soft to the touch. All this means is that they clean up BEAUTIFULLY. Natural fibers are more likely to absorb stains and odors, man-made fibers do not. Since this rug is basically made of super-soft plastic fibers, that means that cleaning up spills is SO easy because they never absorb into the rug. I don’t even have to call in a Rug Cleaning Melbourne company or someone similar! Or well, I do, for my other rugs, but for this one I’m good. I can do it all on my own. I absolutely love this rug!
How do they wear?
This one category probably means the most to me. The price points on these rugs for a 8x10ish is about $200-300. Which is EXTREMELY affordable. In the past I have purchased many a rugs in this price point that in a year they look like garbage. The nap on them ends up showing traffic patterns, and they can even almost look clumpy just from walking on them. This is because the fibers are breaking as you walk on them. These magical polypropylene Loloi rugs are flat woven which means those things I just mentioned are a non issue. They literally have not gotten worn out in high traffic areas, the pattern has stayed put. Over the years the rug looks just as good as the first day I unrolled it. Which to me, with the other things I mentioned considered… it truly makes these rugs the best choice for every single home.
I have quite a few of these rugs in my home, in everywhere from bathrooms to bedrooms to family rooms. I’ve been slowly replacing all my rugs with this type of rug because I have truly been so impressed with them. I feel like I’ve found the rug lottery with this find.
