Our Flokati rugs are made in a family owned factory in Veria, Greece (established in 1950).
The New Zealand wool is exported to Greece for production using a weaving process that enables a 100% wool rug (wool base + wool pile) with no synthetics.
This is a wool rug that is dyed and with the same dyes use to colour clothing (hypoallergenic with no residual colour left over).
Prior to weaving, the wool is thoroughly cleaned and then rinsed to remove 99.9% of any dirt & vegetation from the wool.
The wool is then air dried over drying racks prior to the weaving process.
We have the most sizes in the 2000gsm density (Round & Square rugs).
If you select the 1200gsm or 3000gsm, you will notice we do not keep as many sizes in these densities.
We supply 3 densities (dependant on colour). 1200gsm / 2000gsm / 3000gsm.
'gsm' means 'grams per square meter'.
As an example, 2000gsm is 2kg of wool per square meter.
Visit the link below to learn more on density (with photo comparisons).
After unpacking your rug, ensure you 'fluff' it up and tease it out with your fingers or a brush.
