Wool is naturally flame retardant, stain resistant, odor resistant, holds colour amazingly well over time, very durable and should last longer than its Polypropylene rugs counterpart. Wool is also where things start to feel comfortable on your feet (it's not just the look, it's the feel too!). That's just a few features right off the bat that will give you an idea of what you're investing in with a hand tufted woolen rug.
You don't place hand-made woolen rugs at the door or in high traffic areas very often.
Because these are works of art. Even unconsciously, many people will naturally place these rugs as centerpieces of a space because they can sense that these are special. The truth is that these rugs have been hand made with heart and soul by an individual artist and wiping your feet on them at the front door would almost feel disrespectful.
