Discover Fair Trade Rugs & Cushions this National Wool Week

Monday, 9 October 2017

It's National Wool Week so we're taking the time to enjoy the fantastic collection of wool rugs, kilims and cushions at Myakka.

Being so hardwearing, wool is an ideal material for making rugs and upholstery, whether on its own or combined with other materials such as cotton or jute. It has withstood extreme elements on a sheep over many months and this durable attribute makes it perfect for rugs in active homes in high traffic areas. Wool is also excellent at taking on a dye allowing for a rich variety of colours and patterns. And it is these colourful, highly patterned rugs, cushions and upholstered products that are so popular with our customers whether they enjoy a Bohemian décor or a traditional home style.

We sell rugs, kilims and cushions that are primarily woven in India by skilled artisans using traditional skills passed down the generations. All of our woven products are certified by GoodWeave - a pioneering charity which works to stop child labour in the carpet and rug industry in countries such as India and Nepal.

Here are some of our favourite woven wool products:

Kilim Wool Cushions from £29
Our Navajo Kilim Cushion is a lovely addition to your living room, floor or even outside on the patio. Handmade using a hard-wearing wool and cotton mix, these traditional kilim cushions have a natural texture. A matching Navajo Kilim Rug is also available from only £125.

If you're looking to add a burst of colour to your home, try our Alhambra Wool Kilim Cushions which are available in 3 colours. Printed in an exotic tuile pattern, they're perfect to add an accent to your favourite chair or sofa. Pair them with the matching Alhambra Wool Reversible Kilim Rug, from only £64.

Flatwoven Wool Kilims from £64

The Red Tribal Wool Kilim Rug is a real Myakka favourite. Handloomed in India using traditional techniques, the rich and vibrant colours bring warmth to any room that is lucky enough to be home to this rug! Complement with matching Red Tribal Wool Kilim Footstool and Red Tribal Wool Kilim Cushion

One of our newest rugs this Autumn is the stunning Orrin Kilim Rug, filled with Apache motifs and rich yet muted earth-tone colours. Its incredibly hardwearing quality makes it ideal for even the busiest areas of the home. Finish the look with matching Orrin Kilim Cushion from only £35.

Berber-style Wool Tufted Rugs from £349
With the winter slowly creeping in, there's nothing quite like a thick rug under bare feet. A foot-sinking treat with a warm, wool and cotton pile, the gorgeous Casablanca Berber Rug is a colourful reinterpretation of the original Berber style. Enriching the room as it feels so soft underfoot, the rug is hand tufted and is perfect for a bedroom or living room.

For a more muted tone, why not check out the Marrakech Diamond Berber Rug? Another new addition to the ever-expanding Myakka rug family, its on-trend design will liven up your living space as it brings comfort and warmth to wooden or tiled floors. Made in India and fairly traded, this lovely shaggy rug has fringe trims and is only £349.

Kilim Wool Footstools from £99
We all need somewhere to put our feet up, and your feet deserve something as beautifully crafted as the Ooty Stripe Wool Kilim Footstool. Featuring hard-wearing kilim fabric set upon a solid mango wood frame, this footstool is so comfortable you may find yourself fighting other members of the family for it! A matching Ooty Stripe Wool Kilim Cushion and Ooty Stripe Wool Kilim Rug are also available.
