Flokati Rug Care
Originating from Greece, Flokati rugs have been around for a long time. Initially, they were just used by the shepherds for purposes such as clothing, bed sheets and even tents. Flokati rugs are thick and so kept them warm throughout the cold winter months. As time passed, the women of these shepherds begin to weave these rugs, made them more beautiful and started selling them. Eventually, this became a tradition and now these rugs are manufactured around the world.
Flokati rugs offer a feeling of sensuality, adding elegance to wherever they are laid. They are crafted from the finest wool available, which makes them more durable and increases their lifespan. Though available in several colors, Flokati rugs look best in shades of cream and whites.
