Kids rugs come in a wide range of inviting colors and playful, imaginative designs, so there's sure to be one that appeals to your child's unique personality.

Common materials and construction of kids rugs:
Hand-tufted: Hand-tufted rugs are created by pushing yarns into a fabric base. The surface pile is then cut to create a cushy, soft feel.
Machine woven: Machine woven rugs are made by mechanized looms, which allow the rugs to be made quickly. Machine woven rugs are budget-friendly and come in a wide range of styles, colors, and materials.
Wool: Wool is a high quality rug material that makes for a soft and natural feel underfoot. Wool has natural soil and stain resistance.
Polypropylene: Also called olefin, polypropylene is a synthetic fiber that is strong, colorfast, and comfortable.

Styling and Care Tips for Durable Kids Rugs Kids rugs are made with active (and messy!) kids in mind. That said, to help your rug look good and avoid damage, it helps to follow these guidelines:
For kids rugs made from wool, blot (don't rub!) any liquid spilled before applying a gentle, neutral detergent to clean. Do not use "oxy"? type cleaners on wool rugs.
For kids rugs made from synthetic fibers such as olefin, nylon, and rayon, the same method can be used "? and for tough spots it's okay to use "oxy"? type cleaners.
Rugs Direct recommends avoiding using a vacuum with a beater bar on any area rug to keep it in the best possible shape.
