OC Rug Store 9 Rug Cleaning 9 The Softest Materials Used in Rug Making and Design

We invite you to explore the world of rug design and making, focusing on some of the softest materials that grace our collection. From plush and cozy to velvety and smooth, these materials are carefully chosen to enhance both the visual appeal and tactile experience of your rugs. 


Wool has been a favored material for rug making for centuries. Renowned for its natural softness, warmth, and durability, wool rugs are a timeless classic. The fibers are resilient, which means they retain their shape and bounce back easily, even in high-traffic areas. Wool rugs also have excellent insulating properties, making them ideal for cozying up a space during colder months.


Silk is the epitome of elegance and opulence in the world of rug making. The fine and delicate fibers of silk create a lustrous and luxurious feel underfoot. Silk rugs often feature intricate designs with exceptional craftsmanship. While silk rugs are more delicate and require extra care, they add a touch of sophistication and refined softness to any room.

Bamboo Silk

Bamboo silk, also known as viscose, is a plant-based material that offers a silky smooth texture. Bamboo silk rugs mimic the look and feel of traditional silk but at a more affordable price point. These rugs exhibit a subtle sheen, making them a great choice for adding a touch of understated luxury to your home. It’s important to note that bamboo silk rugs should be placed in low-traffic areas to preserve their softness.


Microfiber rugs have gained popularity due to their exceptionally soft and plush texture. These synthetic fibers are engineered to be ultra-fine, creating a velvety surface that feels delightful to touch. Microfiber rugs are often used in areas where comfort is a priority, such as bedrooms or living rooms. They are also known for their stain resistance and easy maintenance, making them a practical choice for busy households.


Shag rugs offer a unique and indulgent experience with their long, loose fibers. These rugs create a deep, cushioned feel that adds a cozy and inviting touch to any space. Shag rugs are typically made from materials like wool, synthetic fibers, or a blend of both. Their luxurious softness and playful appearance make them a popular choice for modern and eclectic interiors.
