Top Polypropylene Rug

Polypropylene rugs make up a large portion of our range. Today we discuss what polypropylene is, and it’s features and benefits for use in rugs.

Polypropylene, also known as olefin, is a synthetic, man made fibre. There are a couple of types of polypropylene used in rug manufacturing. The cheapest but also the poorest quality polypropylene material used in rug production is BCF (Bulk Continuous Fibre Polypropylene). At Rugs of Beauty, we do not stock any rugs made with BCF, because we aim to stock only high quality products.

The main type of polypropylene material used in rugs, and the one we stock, is called HSPP (Heat Set Polypropylene). There is also a shiny variant of this known as “Frese” or “Frise” Polypropylene. Both of these types produce good quality, long lasting rugs.

One of the great features to own a set of camping floor mat is that they are able to hold their colour well. A new polypropylene rug can look very similar many years later if regularly vacuumed. It also has a highly desirable appearance, with many plush polypropylene rugs having similar look and feel (soft to touch) to wool.

Another handy feature of heat set polypropylene rugs are their water resistant quality. Polypropylene does not absorb liquids. This makes it easy to clean up any liquid spills on these rugs, which can make them a great choice if you have kids or pets around where the rug will be placed. This quality also makes them a great choice for outdoor rugs. Polypropylene is also resistant to mould and mildew, another positive feature for its use in outdoor areas where the rug may get wet.

Finally these rugs can be quite cost effective for the consumer, especially when compared with materials such as wool and silk. The production cost of a polypropylene rug is much cheaper than many other fibres, which results in a cheaper retail price for the consumer.

If you have a high pile polypropylene rug or grey rug , take note of the following: if you place a high pile polypropylene rug in a high traffic area, it is best to rotate it as much as possible to ensure even wear all over the rug, as these rugs will not tolerate high traffic as well as other materials. This is not so much of an issue for low pile polypropylene rugs, where the pile has less of an ability to be flattened over time by foot traffic.

Please see below for some examples of our polypropylene rugs, and see the link below for a full list of our polypropylene rugs.

All You Need to Make Camping Feel Homey Indeed

If there’s something I hate from the bottom of my heart, it would be a half-finished job, or something done only for the sake of saying it’s been done. Like owning a camper van and saying you’ve been camping a countless number of times, when all you’ve ever really done is just hop in the van and drive to a beautiful site, make a barbecue for the day and drive back home. Or maybe you’ve gone a little bit beyond your comfort zone and spent the night under a tent, while all the little rocks and the sticks on the ground made your sleep everything but comfortable. No wonder you’ve come back home all tired, nervous, with a severe back pain and a question troubling your mind: is camping suppose to be that painfully hard? That’s not camping, my friend.

What camping is all about

A common misconception is that camping is a tough experience that requires a lot of energy, physical endurance and a lot of patience and all that is because you’d be in a forest, or on a camping site far from conditions for a normal lifestyle. What nobody wants to accept is that camping has nothing to do with the space you’d be positioned to camp on, but it has more to do with how well you’ve organized your trip and whether you know what exactly you need to bring to recreate the homey feeling that would make your experience recreational.

Take off your shoes

The thing about going camping that most people can’t work with, is needing to wear their shoes – all the time. You’re outside, and walking around bare foot isn’t exactly convenient for a number of reasons.

One way to solve this problem is to get camping floor mat – recreationalmats.com.au purposes specifically made for, which differ largely from an ordinary mat giving you no reason to worry about damage, dirt or having to spend a day after to clean it. These are generally multi-layered mats, mainly designed to keep dirt, mud and everything associated from entering your van, tent or RV. You can also pack it and take it with you if you want to have a picnic somewhere far from your camping site. As a basic convenience that allows you to take your shoes off, with ground mats camping gets another dimension, like you’re walking at home: barefoot.

Stop worrying about the quality of sleep

Where you position your tent matters a lot. It’s good if you have a soft, grassy surface to position it so that you find it comfortable for sitting and sleeping. But, it’s the ground, and there’s no way you can find a surface that’s just perfect for positioning a tent on it. There will always be small rocks, sticks, or grass you don’t want to damage, or ants, or anything. This would interfere with the quality of sleep and from this point on, you’d have a very, very bad camping experience. A ground mat can be the solution to this problem as well – there are types which you can use to place the tent on so that you get high quality underfoot comfort.

Finally, when you’re well rested and get the basic feeling of freedom while not being at home, you can easily get the rest of the stuff in order. Food, the fire, lighting and camping cookware are all the rest of the things you need to take care of in order to have a comfortable and real camping experience.
