Beige Bamboo Shag Area Rug
When your bare feet caress the soft plush fibers of this rug you'll be surprised to discover that it's actually made from bamboo. The Beige Bamboo Shag Rug combines the retro vibe of shag with a modern eco-friendly sensibility. It does this by blending bamboo yarn fibers with cotton to create an incredibly soft shag pile with a natural sheen similar to cashmere or silk. This rectangle area rug is machine-made from an 80% bamboo fiber/20% cotton blend. The backing is made of 100% cotton canvas with natural latex. The lush dense pile consists of 2 550 grams of fiber per square meter for superior heft and a plush look and feel. The rug is actually softer and silkier than traditional shag rugs made from wool cotton or synthetic fibers.The Beige Bamboo Shag Rug and its manufacturing process are both ecologically friendly. Beginning with the material bamboo is a sustainable resource that grows naturally without the need for pesticides or fertilizers due to an inherent naturally-occurring antifungal antibacterial agent called "Bamboo Kun." Once the bamboo fibers are spun into yarn they are hypoallergenic which especially benefits those with sensitive respiratory and skin conditions. The bamboo/cotton blend is also naturally anti-bacterial and antimicrobial which promotes a healthy home environment. This rug is colored using exclusively Azo-free dye which is non-toxic and friendly to the environment.Why this rug is made with Azo-free dye: Azo dyes and pigments are commonly used to color textiles and plastics. Some of the by-products such as chlorinated aromatic amines are toxic and may be potential carcinogens. The European Commission has recently passed directive 76/769EEC which bans the usage of certain Azo dyes for use in any textile or leather product which may come in "direct or prolonged" contact with the skin or mouth. Also Azo dyes and pigments resist biodegradation under aerobic conditions so they are difficult to remove from an ecosystem.When dying their bamboo shag rugs Anji Moutain Bamboo Rug Company retreats and recycles their dyeing waste water to be used again for the next dyeing process which conserves this valuable natural resource.Sizes offered in this rug:Following are all sizes for this rug.
