Felt Ball Rugs!




For the longest time I have been obsessed with felt ball rugs! I am dying to get one, but my sensible husband thinks my daughter’s room does not need a thousand dollar rug.  I on the other hand think, “why not?”  In a previous post I wrote about my DIY Jonathan Adler rug that I made.  Well the rug has not stood the test of time, the felt did not hold up to a child and dog.  I guess it’s the type of felt I used.  Since I can’t buy the original Zebra Jonathan Adler rug and my DIY rug is toast, I have been looking for other options.  This is when I came across felt ball rugs; I seem to have a thing for felt! 





Anyways, most of the rugs I have found have been in the thousand-dollar range.  Again, out of my price range.  But not to long ago I found a great website, FeltBallRug.com, pretty fitting name, don’t you think?  Well I decided to explore their site and found rugs for great prices and the story behind the rugs are just as amazing. 

The rugs are 100% biodegradable and even the colours and dyes used are natural and AZO free.  They are also made from the highest quality New-Zealand wool.  They are naturally resistant to wear and tear: the woolly fiber is strong enough to ensure that the rug remains bouncy.  Cleaning a felt ball rug is easy due to its natural cover, a wax-like material. This protective coating prevents most dirt and liquid from spreading further into the fibers and blocks it out from the surface. Wool is naturally pretty resistant to fire and also absorbs moisture from the air, thus making it hypoallergenic and antibacterial as well. Perfect for any room in the house, especially my daughters room. 

The goal of FeltBallRug.com is to provide the finest quality felt ball rugs available.  Artisans in Nepal handcraft all their rugs.  There are both round and rectangular rug options available in a variety of colours and the price point is considerably lower because they deal directly with the manufacturer.




The team of artisans from two workshops in Nepal, make each of the rugs by hand so each rug is unique.  What is amazing about this company is that the artisans earn roughly 2 to 3 times the average salary for that area, they engage only in fair trade practices.  FeltBallRug.com takes pride in preserving the artistry and history of their rugs.
