Adding a splash of color to your home with these rugs by Prairie Rugs is a great and affordable eco-option. From door mats to large living room rugs, there are a variety of sizes to fit your perfect living space. They even have strips and multi-colored rugs if you like to add more pizzaz to your room. Read on to find out just how these rugs are eco!

So just how are these gorgeous rugs eco?

Handmade Bring out the manual looms! These rugs are handmade by Indian workers that receive healthcare, a pleasant working environment, and a paid month off during the Festival of Lights. (Wish we had that!)

Made from Recycled Rags Gathering the scrap rags from pre-consumer products of local textile mills, these rugs are made up of scraps from bedding. They are sorted, then thoroughly washed with biodegradable soap three times and then dried in the sun.

Organic Dyes The pops of color come from organic dyes gathered locally.

Durable If it doesn't last, you aren't going to keep it! So many trendy things these days are made to be just that—a trend. These rugs are extremely durable, made from heavy weight cotton that they should last you for quite sometime. The cotton warp thread used is the same found in hand-knotted Oriental rugs...in other words, the good stuff.

Did we mention they are beautiful and washable? Now where to put them...
