Natural Materials

Natural fibres like wool, cotton, jute, sisal and silk stand out as the materials of choice for several reasons.

Unlike synthetic materials, natural fibres do not trap heat. This means that heat from the underfloor heating system can pass through the rug more effectively, maintaining the room's warmth and ensuring the system runs efficiently. Rugs made from natural materials complement the heating system rather than compete with it.

Natural fibres are usually durable and also less likely to be affected by the constant warmth from your heated floors. Synthetic rugs, on the other hand, are made from materials like polyester and polypropylene, which can degrade over time when exposed to the consistent heat of an underfloor heating system. 

Rugs made from natural fibres can offer added benefits of comfort, warmth and longevity. Wool rugs for examples offer a plush, soft feel underfoot and are easy to clean and maintain.

 Why Persian and Oriental Rugs Are the Ideal Choice

Persian and Oriental rugs have long been celebrated for their exquisite craftsmanship, intricate designs and high quality materials. Handknotted by skilled artisans from natural fibres, these timeless rugs are the perfect choice homes with underfloor heating.

Persian and Oriental rugs are traditionally crafted from wool or silk, or a combination of these materials. These natural fibres allow heat to pass through, making them perfectly suitable for rooms equipped with underfloor heating.

The resilience of natural fibres found in Persian and Oriental rugs ensures these rugs withstand the test of time. Wool, for example, is known for its durability, ensuring that your Persian rug maintains its colour and charm even when placed in high traffic areas of the home.
