Good Questions: What Kind of Pads Should I Buy for these Wool Rugs?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

My husband just returned from Turkey with two beautiful hand-made wool rugs. One is a tightly woven dowry rug and the other is embroidered and they both require rug pads. What is the appropriate kind of pad for these kinds of rugs? Obviously, I don’t want anything that will stick to the back of the rug and damage it. I would also like a little padding. Any expert advice?

Thanks! Christine
