    What different materials are your rugs made of?

    • Wool

    The term wool indicates the soft fleece (and not simply not the coat) of animal fur, especially ovine fur. Wool enjoys the so-called natural thermoregulatory property. Unlike synthetic fibers, wool is generally more odorless and owns also a natural self-cleaning function. Absorbed odors, in fact, are later released in the air. Consequently, after a short time in the open air, wool acquires again its totally neutral odor. Wool rugs initially tend to give off fluff (pilling), but this phenomenon diminishes over time, also thanks to regular hoovering.

    • Acrylic, polyacrylic, Japanese acrylic

    Acrylic is the abbreviated designation of polyacrylic, a synthetic fiber obtained through a synthetic polymer containing at least a 85% of polymerized acrylonitrile. This textile fiber looks very similar to the wool due to its constant gathers. In addition, wool also enjoys an outstanding resistance thanks to its optimal thermal insulation. Its incredibly soft quality grants this material its extraordinary elegance. Because of its low moisture absorption, acrylic is practically not subject to stains. As a matter of fact, acrylic fibers are preferred in the sector exactly for their similarity to the wool. Moreover, Japanese acrylic stands out for its premium-quality manufacture.

    • Polypropylene (PP)

    Polypropylene is a synthetic fiber obtained by polymerization and melt spinning process. It almost does not absorb moisture, stands out with its resistance and is therefore perfectly suitable for outdoor rugs. Polypropylene fibers also have a high level of elasticity and consequently barely ruck up. For this reason, polypropylene is used, also in combination with wool, in very versatile ways and large series of textile products.

    • Polyester, terylene

    Polyester is a completely synthetic fibrous material, which, thanks to its extraordinary resilience, surpasses any other synthetic fiber in elastic properties. Furthermore, should there be some low tension loading, the extension is absolutely minimal in comparison with polyamides. Polyester, then, is used in innumerable ways and textile products, especially combined with virgin wool and cotton. This filament and textile fiber is also the most exploited material, as far as curtain fabrics are concerned. Thanks to its swelling properties, polyester fiber is absolutely suitable as a filling material for quilts and paddings. Terylene® (Dacron ® in the US) is the trademark for a special polyester fiber, significantly tear proof and scrub resistant. As a consequence, Terylene enjoys outstanding swelling properties and thermal resistance.

    • Polyamide heat-set

    Polyamide fibers were first developed in the US and later on achieved success worldwide. Famous polyamides' representatives are known as nylon, Cordura, Kevlar and Perlon (nylon 6). According to samplings and manufactures, polyamide fibers can be extremely thin and smooth or crinkled, creating either an incredibly bright or purposely dull surface, respectively. In raw material classification, polyamide fibers are often indicated with the acronym PA. Moreover, they are extremely durable and resistant to abrasive stresses, light and thin. Polyamides have also a high elasticity, can dry very fast and are even easy to wash. In addition, polyamide fibers ensure complete shape retention. Heat-set is a finishing process, which significantly improves the quality thanks to the reduction of fibers' internal tensions. Beside such an enhanced appearance, fibers gain also a more consistent durability and elasticity. Staining is consequently very unlikely.

    • Viscose

    Viscose is a synthetic fiber obtained from natural polymers and mainly composed by cellulose. Viscose fibers stand out for their premium chromatic properties. They are also used together with cotton, wool, linen and synthetic fibers. Finally, as far as its look and feel are concerned, viscose usually reminds of silk.
