Extremely well made, durable, 100% wool, perfect textures, and with vivid long lasting colours.

Let's explore the different collections within the Brink & Campman range. You may be surprised at the different variations available!

To view them all at once and skip ahead, here is a direct link to the full Brink & Campman Shag range:

Long Pile Shag Rugs

Shag rugs don't always have to be fluffy and extremely soft. A great example of this would be the gravel mix rug. This rug captures shag rug simplicity perfectly, with black and white strands and a surprising texture that feels amazing underfoot.

Also available in different colour combinations...

Loop Pile Shag Rugs

For those of you wanting something a little different to your average shag rug that screams individuality, check out these unique shag rugs with each design being hand tufted with a coarse loop pile.

A detailed close up allows us to inspect the craftsmanship of the loop pile. Notice the lack of loose wool strands, the density and uniform height of the loops. Brink & Campman is known for consistent quality throughout all of their collections.

Short Pile Shag Rugs

If long pile and loop pile isn't your thing but still want something a bit more plush and higher than your average rug, try a short pile shag rug. With the best of both worlds, you'll still get a soft luxurious feeling underfoot and a greater range of complexity in design thanks to the shorter pile.

Short pile shag rug


A shorter pile means designs will hold and maintain it's look. With a longer pile, designs are harder to place as they can shift around too much due to the longer strands.
If you want the best of both worlds - longer than average pile height for comfort underfoot, and still have beautiful designs upon your floor - then a short pile shag rug may be for you.
