5 reasons to buy rugs from The real rug company

We've all done it, gone through about 20 websites looking for something and buying from the first one anyway..

So, what makes The Real Rug Company the right choice?

Here are 5 reasons why our rugs and our service is MUCH better than other online rug shops...

1. Guaranteed Price and Quality

If you find the same rug for sale elsewhere and it is at a lower price, we will match the price, or if you have already bought it, we will refund any difference and give you a voucher to use on our other websites - then we will adjust our prices accordingly! If any defect develops with a rug, we will collect the rug from you at our expense and refund or replace it according to your wish. Shop with confidence at The Real Rug Company.

2. FREE delivery and FREE returns (fast)

Other than a few highland and island postcodes your new rug will be delivered free of charge on an overnight service. If you don't like it for any reason at all, just let us know within 7 days and we will collect it from you. This takes the risk out of shopping for rugs online. You are welcome to order 2 rugs and have us come and collect the one you do not prefer.

3. Rugs Made From Natural Materials

We focus on natural materials for our range of rugs. Wool, jute, hemp, leather. All these material have advantages over man made alternatives. They are fire and stain resistant for example.

4. Authentic Rugs From The Place In The World Where They Traditionally Originate.

You can get Chinese Flokati rugs, but we have them made in Greece because that is where they have traditionally been made for a very long time, and we believe that means a better quality rug for you. Likewise you can get cowhides rugs from India, but we get ours from Argentina because that is where the longest tradition is. We follow this principle across our range of rugs.

5. Rugs Designed In-House To Ensure Highest Specifications

For example, our Highlander rugs have a 10cm deep pile. It was originally 6cm. The knots are closer together and in a checkerboard pattern rather than further apart and in rows. The result is a better rug. We upgrade and improve all rugs which we stock.

Clearance Rugs

We currently have 8 amazing rugs on our clearance page.

There is nothing wrong with these rugs, they are simply rugs that we had made especially as one off rugs.

If you bought them all, you would save about £2300... assuming you were already planning to buy about £4500 worth of rugs!  There is some logic in there.  Regardless it is a very good deal indeed.

India bans cash - causes problems for small businesses.

In another example of why it is better to buy rugs with Bitcoin, here is a message i received today from one of our suppliers:

"Would like to tell you that due to the demonetization policies of our Prime minister Mr Modi .
We are totally out of cash .
Leather was ordered and we could not pay the supplier in cash so he is still holding the leather with him for want of cash as leather for one piece can be bought in cash only they dont accept cheques .
the govt is only allowing us cash for 4000 Rs which is approx 50 GBP a week which we are spending in basic necessities .
It may be a month that the cash situation is restored and we are able to buy again .
though it appears too be a good move for black money etc but we are totally screwed up for the want of cash.
Waiting for the new currency to be distributed by the banks so that we can proceed with our daily business ."

India operates largely as a cash economy. What were they thinking ?!

Time to adopt Bitcoin as a superior form of money. That is why we offer 10% off for anyone who pays for rugs with Bitcoin.
