I am so stoked to announce I have discovered the Chupacabra…it’s a real thing and it’s name is Lorena Canals Rugs! As a mom and designer I am always searching for practicality, function and beauty in home decor. Back in 1990, Lorena Canals pioneered washable rugs, which meets so many of my needs, and must meet the needs of so many other people. I am so thankful she did! I love that the brand takes immense pride in all that they do and it truly shows.
I honored to be collaborating with Lorena Canals because I am able to experience her rugs first hand, how they wear, and how they add dimension to my space. My goal in establishing collaborations is to be able to truly give my feedback to clients when they ask me for recommendations. As a social media content creator, many of my clients reference my blog, Instagram feed and Pinterest boards for information and inspiration.
Here are a few reasons I am so in love! First, one of Lorena’s biggest selling features is that her rugs are washable. Well, I can report IT’S TRUE! I can easily fit my rug into the washing machine. I know, I thought ‘no way’ at first, but it’s true! Being that I have a very active 14 month old daughter, the ability to easily launder the rug was a priority for me.
Second, the rugs are gorgeous! Stunning really! They are handmade rugs…down to the artisans who spin and dye the cotton fibers and weave the rugs. They use beautiful ancestral manufacturing techniques, which is what makes each individual rug so unique.
Last, but probably the most important reason is Lorena Canals creates their rugs with the environment and it’s users in mind. They are certified by AITEX, which authenticates with the European regulations for products intended to be used by children. The dyes they use are all natural. They
reduce CO2 emissions by promoting the use of natural resources and traditional means of production, and are very cognizant and mindful of how they manage waste treatment.
All in all, I would rate my Lorena Canals rug as having the best quality, functionality and most features and benefits for a moderate price point. They offer so many great options and styles to chose from.
