He’s going to eat us! – Miss J
Isn’t this a cool rug? We’re in the middle of reorganising JD’s room but he loved his ZUG so much we had to put it down right away.
ZUGS are handmade, 100% wool, ultra thick and soft carpets that come in a range of bright designs featuring comical characters. They use non-toxic dye and have a woven, 100% cotton back to keep them in pace on carpet. At 100x130cm, they’re the perfect size for children’s bedrooms and playrooms.
The one above is Frank the Monster, one of eight ZUG designs currently available, all priced at £90.
In the first week or two of use, we noticed the ZUG shed quite a lot of fibres, but I think that just goes to show the quality of the product – it’s not a synthetic, thinly woven carpet, it’s a thick, real-wool, hand-tufted ZUG!
The care that goes into these rugs shows the quality of the finished product. ZUGS is a family business run by Mark Hanlon and Sinead Murphy. ZUGS is also a full member of the Care & Fair network, an initiative against illegal child labour in the carpet industry, so you can bring a little bit of ZUG sunshine into your family home without fear that you’re contributing to exploitation of children elsewhere.
Our verdict? We love them and I’m keen to get one for Miss J’s room asap. If you’re thinking about buying a rug, consider a ZUG :)
Disclosure: we were sent a ZUG for review.
