This 1970’s classic is making a comeback! Originating in Greece, shags are becoming increasingly popular in American homes because of their “wild” yet sumptuous feel and affordable price.
Shag rugs are durable and versatile – they can soften hardwood and tile floorings, and also placed by your bed, to give your feet a morning “treat!” If you put on in front of your fireplace keeps it cosy.
Flotaki and Aros shags, produced in New Zealand, are particularly popular. Characterized by different pile strands – ranging from one to three inches – they lend a textured look and feel.
Shag rugs come in hard-wearing cotton, acrylic, and nylon and in a wide range of sizes and colors, from cream and muted brown to psychedelic red and orange.
