Area Rugs: Wool

Wool area rugs also provide warmth to the room; not only by the feeling of warmth they exude, but also by being non-conductive, they help retain the room’s natural heat.

Area Rugs Economic History

The area rug industry is dominated by women workers. As men work outdoors to earn money and support the families, the women weave carpets sitting back at theire houses thus providing an additional income to the family. Girls in many countries from the age of ten to twelve years start working in the carpet industry, thus supporting their families.

Sometimes multiple smaller area rugs are more appropriate in the bedroom. Place one at the foot of the bed and one or two on each side of the bed.
