Hey guys! I’m here today with another post in my baby favorites blog series. Today, I will be talking about Lorena Canals rugs.
We pulled up the rug in our living room, because we thought it would be cleaner, less dust, etc. However, my girls like to play on the floor, and I was starting to get worried about it being too cold on the floor when “winter” rolls in. (We live in Texas, so it doesn’t get extremely cold, but still…) Also, with baby girl on the move, we needed something to cushion her as she learned to sit up, crawl, and start to walk. We were using some foam mats set up on one wall with her toys, but it wasn’t all that pretty to look at. They are bright primary colors, and stand out like a sore thumb in our grey/neutral living room.
I came across Lorena Canals rugs on instagram when looking at beautiful nurseries. I loved the soft, sophisticated look of the rugs, and decided to check them out for myself!
What I quickly discovered was that the major selling point of Lorena Canals rugs is that they are machine-washable…I repeat: machine-washable!!! How fantastic is that? With 2 dogs, and 3 kids, a machine-washable rug is everything!
When I got the opportunity to try out a LC rug for myself, I jumped at the chance and chose the Braids rug in pearl grey.
This rug comes in 2 sizes, and I got the bigger one, which measures 4’ x 5’3”. I love this rug! It looks so much better in the corner of our living room than the bright foam mats! The color is perfect, and I love the subtle pattern.
So far, I have washed it once, and it fits in my standard-sized washing machine with room left over. The care instructions say you can tumble dry on low heat, but I chose to hang dry mine. Lorena Canals rugs are light weight, so it dried in no time.
I am so happy to have this rug! Baby girl loves to eat her snacks, and I’m glad that I can vacuum up the crumbs, and if she spills anything on it, I can throw it in the washing machine.
Lorena canals rugs are natural and eco-friendly; They are 100% natural cotton, made with non-toxic dyes, and contain no VOCs. LC rugs are designed in Spain, and handmade in India. I love that the proceeds support the Sakula project, and helps to provide schooling for children in India.
If you have kiddos, I highly recommend you check Lorena Canals rugs out! They also have cute cushions, blankets, and baskets.
My girls love having a rug again, and I love that I can wash it.
Happy Tuesday y’all!
