Area Rugs

When it comes to putting the finishing touches on your home, an area rug often just pulls the room together! It can add a pop of colour to the living room, elevate the style in your dining room, soften up your bedroom and—ba da bing, ba da boom—instantly make your space look more polished. The only trouble is, many rugs are made with wool. And wool is one of those problems that people don't always realize is problematic. People tend to imagine sheep getting nice haircuts for us to get their wool, when, in reality, sheep shouldn't actually need hair cuts, are actually bred to overproduce wool, and they are often abused and mutilated during the shearing process. Vegan-friendly alternatives beneath your feet would feel so much better, right? Which is why we rounded up a lovely bunch!
