This natural contemporary Black Bamboo Shag rug is the last thing you?d expect from a bamboo rug--it's soft. It's actually softer and silkier than traditional shag rugs made from wool or synthetic fibers. The uniquely luxuriant look and feel of this rug is due to a custom specified bamboo yarn blend with an exceptionally high quotient of bamboo fiber--80% bamboo and 20% cotton. Naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial which promotes a healthy environment in your home and resists odors. Bamboo yarn is hypoallergenic which is beneficial to all, especially those with sensitive respiratory and skin conditions. Bamboo grows naturally without the need for pesticides or fertilizers due to an inherent, naturally-occurring antifungal, antibacterial agent called ?Bamboo Kun? Unlike other shags it only has minimal, initial shedding. Only Azo-free (non-toxic) dyes are used.
Synthetic area rugs and carpets commonly off-gas toxic, harmful voc?s (volatile organic compounds) into the air. these voc?s can be emitted from both the synthetic fibers that make up the rug pile and the synthetic glues used in the backing. Who wants to breathe that stuff? voc?s can cause a multitude of unpleasant symptoms including eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea and dizziness. Whether one suffers from allergies, has a sensitive respiratory system or not? choosing a natural fiber area rug which does not off-gas is a positive choice that helps create a healthier environment in your home.
