The New Trend of Viscose Rugs

“It looks like silk for a fraction of the price,” is pretty enticing. In these economic times, who can resist giving the impression you’ve spent more, while spending less?


Man-made fibers such as viscose (commonly known as rayon) are often used to mimic the characteristics of natural fibers. Viscose simulates natural silk (often referred to as art silk) and it’s used in the production of rugs for its softness, and to highlight details as well as give them a beautiful luster. Plus, it’s easy for manufacturers to dye, taking on bright colors and vivid prints.


However, viscose is moisture absorbent and has moderate resistance to acids and alkalis. The dyes used in the fiber can experience color change. It is not recommended to use a viscose rug in high traffic and wet areas like hallways, front entries or kitchens. Traditional wool rug cleaning and methods do not apply either. The term “Get it cleaned professionally” is apropos of this material. New fibers, like viscose, as well as nylon rugs and those that are hand-tufted, require new technology to properly clean and care for them. Chemical cleaning products currently used by most so-called “rug cleaners” are not only dangerous to your health, but they do not clean or remove most spots, including pet urine.

In addition to our proprietary method for cleaning viscose rugs, our rinsing and cleaning take place at the same time to avoid oversaturation, a key element in protecting the viscose fibers. The majority of moisture content is removed immediately in a pre-drying stage. The last stage of drying takes place in custom engineered drying rooms which properly conditioned air is recycled five times an hour, creating an ideal environment for effective and fast drying.
