HERE’S WHY THEY WORK SO WELL

Our barrier mats have an eco-genics backing as standard, here are some of it's wonderful qualities - 

Anti-slip: The waffle design combined with the soft latex rubber allows grip on hard polished surfaces and carpets to stop the mat from slipping or creeping

Anti-stain: Our stable rubber compound backing is designed not to leave marks, is non-damaging and contains non-staining antioxidants – tested for use on a wide variety of floorings. Our backing is also free from both vinyl & PVC

Recycled content: We have always looked for the best way of preventing harmful waste, as part of that we have invested in technology that allows us to add renewable rubber and post industrial plastics into the rubber backing therefore saving over 100 tonnes of plastic per year going to landfill and damaging our environment! We are very proud of the fact that our textile mills in Yorkshire are ZERO waste to landfill!

Our extra tough fibre membrane is made from recycled plastic bottles and bottle tops to bond the fibres to the backing. At our Yorkshire factories we recycle over 7.5 million plastic bottles each year preventing them ending up in the oceans or landfill.

From the sourcing of our materials, the development of entirely new manufacturing processes, using cleaner/greener sources of electricity made by hydro pumps, windmill farms and solar, through to our products disposal and recycling, we try to considered everything to ensure they have as light an environmental footprint as possible.

Machine washable: Washable at 30ºC. Due to the strong bonding layer and the flexible rubber backing the mats can be washed over and over again. The tufted surface becomes more absorbent once washed.

MAKING SENSE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT & YOUR HOME







                     

Our natural rug ranges are a collaborative effort of many people, a highly talented team of dedicated professionals spread over our own manufacturing plants in the UK and India. From the designers, spinners and weavers to the people who deliver and lay the finished rug, the result of all this is a hand made rug of the highest quality. 

The Rug Guru range of luxury rugs has been inspired by extensive travel through India, China and the Middle East, all areas of the world renowned for producing rugs of the finest quality. 
 
Origin Rugs offer a more contemporary range of patterns and designs in a variety of sizes and colours to make a statement in your home. 

Created using the finest yarns available, together with our sustainable approach to manufacturing, the Rug Guru and Origin Rugs ranges have a timeless quality that will make your home feel special. Each time you choose one, you’ll be walking in the footsteps of three generations of craftsman rug makers and you’ll feel the luxurious texture and warmth with every step.

Why we love wool

Wool allows a richness of colour and texture, but that’s not all, here are the benefits of a wool rug…

WARM AND COMFORTABLE Good quality wool is inherently soft, warm and very cosy. Being a natural insulator, it absorbs heat and releases it slowly keeping you warm in the winter whilst regulating the heat in summer.

NATURALLY ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY It is grown organically requiring only grass and water as raw materials and is naturally biodegradable and composts easily. It’s 100% sustainable and 100% renewable, with very little environmental impact throughout its production process.

DURABILITY AND PERFORMANCE Wool is extremely hard wearing. It has a natural bounce back because of the structure of the fibre, which is like a coiled spring, so it is hard to flatten and distort meaning your rug will look beautiful for many years.

STAIN RESISTANT AND WATER-REPELLENT The microscopic fibres on the outermost layer of wool trap dirt particles before they become buried deep within the carpet, making them easy to remove with vacuuming. Rugs made from wool are naturally water-repellent because the surface of wool has a very thin layer of waxy, lipid coating.

FIRE RETARDANT Wool is a naturally fire retardant fibre with a slow ignition rate, it doesn’t give off toxic fumes and self-extinguishes within seconds. Wool does not melt, drip or emit fumes making it the perfect, safe choice to have in your home.

HYPO-ALLERGENIC Wool is resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew that can trigger allergic reactions in people. It is a non-allergenic material that prevents the growth of bacteria or dust mites, one of the triggers for asthma attacks. Not only does wool absorb harmful pollutants from the air, it does not re-emit them as it holds them permanently within its core. It’s estimated that wool used in interiors can help purify the air for up to 30 years.

My Mat is a range of hard wearing natural coir products specifically designed by our team of in-house designers. These coir mats not only look great but are extremely functional. Made from coco fibre extracted from the outer husks of coconut makes it a natural and environmentally friendly doormat. Coir mats can be used indoor or outdoor, ideal for porches and entrances. 

Coir is one of nature’s wonder materials and we have taken full advantage of its natural, hard wearing properties to bring you plain, printed and scraper options.

Here are the key features of our high quality coir range...

• Made with 100% natural coconut husk fibres
• Hard wearing and long lasting
• High grade coir product – tighter bound together for less shedding and maximum longevity
• Rot and moth proof
• Fungi resistant
• Superior dirt scraping and moisture absorption
• PVC backing – non-slip, hard wearing (Luxury Plains do not have a PVC backing)*
• Suitable for indoor or outdoor use

SHEDDING These doormats may shed in the first few months of use. During this period simply brush or shake the mat to maintain its best appearance.

*Our Luxury coir mats have no rubber backing and are more suited to areas where they may get wet (than our PVC backed coir) as they are pure coir throughout and the water can pass through.

Our nylon car boot protectors are perfect for keeping the back of your car clean and scratch free. They are stain resistant with nylon fibres and non-slip rubber backing. Dense pile traps dirt, dust and mud, as well as being ultra absorbent to protect from muddy paw prints.

Here’s how the car boot protectors work:

RUBBER BUMPER PROTECTOR Our car boot protectors have a rubber section which Velcros on to the back of the mat – easily rolled in and out to protect your paintwork from doggy scratch marks.

LONG LASTING Our nylon tufting is soft, durable and stays looking good for longer. These nylon mats have a high fibre density which makes them extremely resilient, crush resistant and hard wearing. 

EASY CLEAN Nylon is naturally resistant to staining so washing restores the mat, making it look fresh and new time after time. Quick drying enhances the easy care of the mat.
