Though the shaggy rug dates back to the ancient Greeks, the shaggy rug is synonymous with the American lifestyle and culture of the 60s and 70s and was often associated with carefree hippies and the beat generation of that time. The unusual appearance, fuzzy material, and soft feeling made it a very popular rug across the world. However in the 80s the shaggy rug began to decline in popularity as its association with the hippie era made the rug seem as a symbol of an era gone by.
Nowadays, however, the shaggy rug is making a spectacular comeback. Despite the rug being relatively dormant for a while, the rug’s comeback into fashion has allowed it to be transformed from a traditional hippie rug to a trendy comfort rug. Over time people came to realise that the shaggy rug is a rug which adds a great deal of depth and texture to a room, and is also very cozy and comfortable to boot. Today there are many types of shaggy rugs which can suit many different rooms. From a neutral colour to funky patterns there is a shaggy rug for every room.

The rug works almost as an insulator, by absorbing noise your home will become a calmer, quieter, and more relaxed place to enjoy.
