Custom Size Rugs
If you’re looking for a rug that’s large or small, narrow or wide, we can custom make it to suit your needs. Every rug from this collection can be supplied in the size you are looking for, from a width as little as 50 cm up to an extra-large size of 6 m in any length.
Custom Rug Colours
There are over 96 different colours to choose from. If you can’t decide on just one colour, not to worry you can mix colours to create your ideal custom coloured rug.
Every individual rug is made from 100% pure new virgin wool from New Zealand. Sheep’s wool is a natural product that has numerous benefits with one being it can absorb and release large amounts of moisture especially in humid climates like Queensland. Therefore, it regulates the interior climate of the room leading to a more pleasant atmosphere.
As an added benefit some of the styles in the Oblia Collection can even be reversed. This will assist with the overall wear of the rug over time.
Texture is one of the most understated elements you can bring to your home. Rug texture can depend on the size of your room. A large room can accommodate a large and chunkier profile when compared to a smaller room which is often suited to a smaller textured style rug.
Care & Maintenance
For general cleaning, a weekly vacuum at a minimum with a flat nozzle is sufficient. 85% of dirt in carpet and rugs is dry dirt and can be removed by effective vacuuming. We recommend you revitalise your rug by laying it outside twice a year. Wool is a fantastic natural fibre, especially when you can take advantage of the self-cleaning effect. However, a professional wool safe rug clean is suggested every two years.
Cleaning your wool rug
It’s inevitable your rug will get dirty, the kids with play on the it, the cat or dog leaves hair or your wine glass spills. Stains caused by water-soluble dyes such as coffee, tea, wine, ink, can be removed if act quickly. Immediately wash the area with lukewarm water and a small amount of soap before they bond with the wool. Sometimes this process must be repeated two or three times. Ensure you always dab with a lint free cloth do not rub!
