Hi all!

 

I was wondering if anyone had experience researching non toxic area rugs.  We have a few by Earthweave but the colors are so...boring.  We finally have enough money saved to get one for the master bedroom and I am just hoping there might be more options out there for a chemical free, moth proofing free, wool area rug.  I figured if anyone knew, it would be my fellow Mamas on MDC in this forum.  TIA!

Bumping for input. Anyone have any nontoxic rugs recommendations to make?

What about a cotton braided rug?  I believe those are non-toxic.  I have one and love it.

Cotton isn't my choice for a bedroom because it tends to breed dust mites. Wool is pretty much my fave fabric for something that can't be washed...Also I'm looking for something quite thick so it can be used as a little soundproofing. Thanks so much for replying through!!!

I was wondering if you ever found any area rugs? I was looking at Earthweave, too, but I don't think my family will like their colors.
