Wool vs Synthetic Rugs
At first glance, one would think that the inexpensive synthetic rugs were the most economical choice. However, there are hidden life cycle costs that make these rugs unsustainable in the long term. Synthetic rugs are formulated with chemical treatments that require quite a bit of money to research, develop, test, and become certified for production use.
Synthetic Rug Production
The business model for these synthetic rug makers is based on high-volume sales. Profit margins for the rugs are relatively low, but the rug makers count on us to purchase the cheap floor coverings in high quantities to turn a profit and pay for its front-end costs.
Most people will fall into this trap because they’ll want to replace the worn rugs after only a few years of use.
Wool Rug Production
The process for producing wool is a little more straightforward. There are no harsh chemicals that cause physical harm when used. Consumers can get wool floor coverings that are made with natural dyes. When rug makers use all-natural raw materials, they don’t need to worry about toxic chemicals that cost money up front to formulate and cause adverse health reactions in the long term.
Even though synthetic rugs are manufactured in factories at a fast pace, they still require more raw materials to produce than wool floor coverings. Wool production is efficient and versatile.
The operator of a small ranch can use the same time-tested tools and techniques to shear her sheep for market as the larger commercial outfits use. This versatility is healthy for the economy and efficient enough to offer a good living to hard-working, independent ranchers and cottage industry rug makers.
