Custom-making a rug means you can really personalise your space. Pick one of the store’s Indian dhurrie rugs and you can choose between a range of materials, many different colours and patterns, as well as your desired size.
A word from the Ruby Slipper team: “When it comes to what’s trending in rugs and carpets, customers prefer rugs made of cotton and jute over wool right now. In addition, more people are exploring new shapes such as oval, while geometric patterns and colourful rugs are also going strong.”
