Ruggable is a company that redesigned the area rug for modern living. Ruggable isn’t a traditional area rug. It’s a two-piece rug system that consists of a rug pad and a rug cover or topper. The cover is the decorative part. The rug bad is made from the same material that yoga mats are made from and like yoga mats they are non-slip and non-skid. You don’t need to use a traditional rug pad to keep your Ruggable in place.
Instead of buying a traditional area rug and a pad to keep it in place when you purchase a Ruggable, you buy a rug pad in the size that fits your space and then you choose the decorative cover that you want to put over it. And the rug covers are machine washable. An area rug that you can wash is revolutionary when it comes to floor coverings. Now you don’t have to waste money on traditional rugs that need to be replaced every year or so because they are dirty.
