Emeraude Costa Shag Rugs March 30, 2018 22:14:32
Thanks to the resurgence of modern shag rugs more traditional forms of the style are being rediscovered as well. Among these are Flokati rugs from Greece and Aros rugs from New Zealand. Both rugs use exceptionally soft wool as their material which is then processed and hand woven in ways that result in rugs of unmatched softness and value. These styles of rugs provide the same three-dimensional texture to a room that shag rugs do but their texture is more like powder puffs than the bushy effect of modern shags. The most heavenly aspect of Flokati and Aros rugs are the way they feel against the feet a luxurious softness thats virtually unmatched by any other style of rug. This makes Flokati and Aros rugs perfect for bedrooms where relaxation is a guiding principle.
Typically shag rugs can be made from cotton acrylic polypropylene and nylon and are available in a host of colors to suit every taste and need. These rugs all have a similarity in appearance in the sense that their texture and appearance consist of strands of knotted material. These are either short or long in appearance or a combination of both.
Remember when shag rugs and shag carpeting was a cultural staple during the disco era of the 1970s? And remember that they only came in the most obnoxious colors like brick orange and swamp green?

Many shag carpets for the bathroom are made from brushed fibers making them even more comfortable.
