Protect your investment in your high-quality wool rug with one of our eco-friendly rug pads! A rug pad will protect the hardwood from scratching due to the weight of the rug and any debris trapped under the rug. It will also prevent wear on the backing by trapping any particles in its webbing and preventing abrasion. Not only that, but it provides an extra layer of cushioning underfoot! With proper care, hand-knotted rugs can last for generations.
